Compatibility with FLI CL1-10 filter wheel

I have the FLI Centerline CL1-10 filterwheel. It has two wheels that have 5 spots each so it has 25 possible positions. SGP seems to only support up to 12 and I don’t see any way to pick exactly which ones they are. The CL1-10 has positions like 0/0, 0/1, 0/2, 0/3, 0/4, 1/0, 1/1,1/2, 1/3. 1/4, 2/0,2/1 etc. Would it be possible to add these options to SGP?

From what I can see from the FLI driver, we’re controlling the filterwheel just by a single number. Can you connect the filterwheel to SGP and then send us the logs so we can see if there is additional information that we’re missing?

Thank you,
Jared

Thanks Jared,
I really appreciate your getting back to me. I connected to the CL1-10 and ran it through all 12 positions. The problem is I can’t get to certain combinations of the 2 wheels. In order to use my Ha filter I need to have one wheel on an empty location and the other on the filter. SGP allows me to access the 5 positions of the first wheel but not the other. Here are my log files.

Thanks Jared.
I sent a reply and attempted to attach 7 log files but I got a response that the log files were rejected from the email. Not sure why, they are just text files.

Here are the first two log files in case sending them in smaller groups helps.

Duncan,
Please use dropbox or something similar for the logs. Or you can send them to support@mainsequencesoftware.com and just reference this thread. Sadly the forum software doesn’t provide an easy way to prune old attachments so we had to limit them.

Thank you,
Jared

So I think this is a limitation that we’re creating…but it would still be good to see the output of the logs. There should be a couple of lines like:

FLI CFW Name:
FLI Library Version: 
FLI CFW Num Filters:

Those are the main things I’m after. If you can post those that would be helpful.

Thank you,
Jared

Hi Jared,
Did you get the dropbox transfer? I sent it earlier today.

Duncan,
Yes, I received the logs. Thank you for sending them. Unfortunately this is going to be something we’ll need to address and it will require some new UI around filters. Having said that it’s probably not going to be something we can get to relatively quickly.

Thank you,
Jared

Thanks Jared,

I really appreciate your looking in to it. For now I will just have to use the FLI software to control the filter wheel.

Please let me know if you come up with a solution.

I am still very new to SGP and I am repeatedly watching the Chris Woodhouse YouTube tutorials. I am very impressed with your program. It addresses pretty much everything in regard to equipment control when imaging. Very well thought out and though still a steep learning curve it is intuitive.

Thanks again,

Duncan
