Subframe focus - Bahtinov and spectral line methods

Hello,
1) I am familiar with the Bahtinov technique but am looking for descriptions of how to integrate this into Astroart processing?

2)Also looking for descriptions of how to integrate focusing on a spectral line into Astroart processing - especially finding the width of a line?
Regards,
Patrick.
