    Default FocusMax run-time error 91

    See attached jpeg. I have been getting this error over and over. Sometimes I can restart the system to work properly, but not tonight...four times in a row failure.

    And this is the error I get in the plan-specific log for ACP:

    01:44:53 Start slew to AY_Psc...
    01:44:54 (wait for slew to complete)
    01:44:55 (slew complete)
    01:44:55 Target is now centered.
    01:44:55 (long exp, no orbital tracking, trying to autoguide)
    01:44:55 Switching from C to V filter for imaging
    01:44:55 Focus change of 1 steps required
    01:45:13 **Script Error (Tracking has been stopped)**
    01:45:14 Source: FocusMax
    01:45:15 Message: Application-defined or object-defined error at line 1236 column 5.
    ACP console log closed 17-Feb-2011 01:45:22 UTC

    Sometimes I get this error in the high-level log:

    FocusMax is 3.5.94. Acquire star works just fine under control of ACP (or manually)...but when it comes to the first filter change for an imaging plan (and use of a filter offset value)....things hang up and when I click on the error message box...FocusMax crashes and disappears.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance
