Filter Wheels are relatively simply devices. There are two primary controls for most filter wheel drivers:

  • Filter Slot: This is the current active slot of the filter wheel. It starts from 1 to the maximum number of slots available. To change the filter, simply change the slot number.
  • Filter Names: On first connection, filter names (e.g. Red) are generated by the driver. Change the filter names to reflect the actual installed filter using the Capture Module in Ekos (KStars).
