    Default Telescope and FocusMax

    Hi,

    Anyone know why FocusMax does not automatically connect to the telescope when it is connected in ACP... during Startup in ExpertScheduler... says it depends on ACP.

    Happy New Year!

    Jerry,

    Go into the FocusMax Open/Preference/Setup window and make sure there's a setting in the Telescope section for the appropriate ASCOM Telescope Chooser.

    I have noticed recently that the connection to my focuser is often not automatically made, and when I look in these preferences, I see that the System1 Focuser setting has been blanked. Not sure if this is a bug in FMx, but I'm using FMx Version 4.1.0.85, which I know is not the latest version.
