1) Select the 'NiteCrawler Focuser' and 'NiteCrawler Rotator' in the corresponding areas of the SGP Sequencer Window:
2) For Auto Focus you will likely need to increase your step size considerably because of the extremely fine resolution of the NiteCrawler. (previously this setup required 50 steps and is now at 1500). A more in depth discussion for determining auto focus parameters can be found here:http://mainsequencesoftware.com/Content/SGPHelp/SequenceGeneratorPro.html?UnderstandingAutoFocus.html
3) Next test the rotation direction of your setup. Moving from 0-30 degrees should cause the rotator to move clockwise as viewed from behind. If this is not the case reverse the direction inside of the ascom driver:Videos:
