Question

Hi,

  I have installed motorized filter wheel to my scope.  In the property of filter wheel, I can edit what kind of filter I choose, and when I choose a filter number (for example 1), it display what kind of filter has been used (for example H-alpha).  Can the name of filter been linked to the file name's?  I forget to enter correct filter name manually frequently.  It end up I am confused about which image is with which filter.  Do you have "the linking feature" build in to BYE now?  Please advise.  Thanks.

Samson

I do not believe that BYE can currently read an ASCOM Filter wheel position put that name into name in your image file name. Nor is it currently possible BYE to change the filter according to the selected name from your capture plan.

I would suggest that you create a post in the Feature Suggestion Box forum with your idea. Please include a brief description on how this capability would improve your workflow. Specifically, it would be useful to hear how you use filters with your DSLR camera.

Much of the ground work has been done since BYE can communicate with ASCOM filter wheels and that a manual filter wheel name can be imbedded in an image file name.
