So you did not actually test the method I proposed yourself?

The whole idea of leaving *only* one dot visible when focusing is to eliminate the typical errors coming from targets placed at 45 degrees. Indeed, the rest of the target is here pure white and cannot contribute to the phase detection of the focusing system. This is easily confirmed by the total inability of the camera to focus if the collimator is not on the dot.
