    Default rigel focuser and fire capture error



    i've been trying to do some planetary imaging on my new scope but i keep getting errors for the focuser while using fire capture, any idea on what it means?

    also using sharp cap with the focuser doesn't work too good as well, the focuser will just crash, both imaging software open the gcusb nstep focuser software while in use, the nstep ui will show it's position different to the sharp cap or fire capture postion then every 5 seconds or so the fire capture or sharp cap position will flicker on the nstep focuser ui screen

    the focuser is a rigel
