This is Ricardo from Spain. I recently purchased a moravian G2-8300 with 10-position external filter wheel. It is my first ccd camera and i was really excited. I placed the filters (Baader), install the drivers in my pc (windows 10 pro, x64).The drivers gave problems when connecting in sgp but checking sgp forum i found that the correct operation were 32bit. So i installed them.
I started sgp application (version 22.214.171.124), configure a new profile and all that stuff. Then i connect everything (camera, filter wheel, focuser,telescope). Everything worked fine. I planned a session that included frames from filters L, R, G and B. I started with L frames and 3 hours later it
was time to change filter and continue the session. Here it appears the window ‘Failed to set filter’. As I was in the field, i changed object and continued with L frames.
Back home, i tried to reproduce the error and it appears. I showed you what the log wrote:

When the error appeared for the first time, ASCOM platform 6.2 was installed in the pc. I updated to version 6.4 and the result was the same. Actually i’m blocked because i don’t know where the problem could come and how to fix it.
I will really appreciate your help. Thanks
