Meade 416/1616 With 616

This plug-in driver is available as part of the Obsolete Driver Pack.

For this driver, select Meade 416/1616 on the Setup tab.

The Meade Pictor 416XT and 1616XT in serial mode can directly control a Pictor 616 filter wheel. No special settings are required.

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.
