Finger Lakes Instrumentation

For this driver, select Finger Lakes on the Setup tab.

The Finger Lakes Instrumentation CFW series filter wheels connect via a serial port or USB. Set Select to the COM port or USB device you are using.

The user can assign names for each of the color filter slots, under Filter Name. If your filter wheel has fewer slots than allowed for by this driver, simply leave the Filter Name in the extra slots blank; they will not appear in the drop-list filter selectors. If the filters vary in thickness, a Focus Offset can be entered for each filter. This causes the focus position to be offset appropriately every time an exposure is taken with a new filter position. If this feature is used, absolute positioning focusers are strongly recommended to ensure repeatability.
