How does the focus work with STELLINA?

The focus is (currently) done during STELLINA’s initialization: when the arm is unfolded and after the first field recognition, the focus will be done until it finds the position at which the stars are the finest. It is made possible thanks to our software algorithm.

If you notice that the focus is not correct during your observation, you can relaunch it. Go to the first tab of STELLINA and click on the Autofocus button.
