Re: Temperature compensation for Auto focusing

Is it possible to have him take a look at option for auto-focusing at filter change? I prefer this to using offsets.

Re: Automatic platesolve error

I disagree. I prefer an option to focus with every filter change. It is a deal killer for me. I do not trust offsets. Is it possible in the next version to update a option to do autofocus for each filter?

Also the manual is no help and it has it in the wrong directory (calibration). I had to search for it and found it in another directory(observatory).

Re: Updating without internet and temp settings

For the temperature, Prism is reading the the temp in fahrenheit from my focuser, but displays a "C" next to it. So it looks like 60C when it is actually 60F.
