    Default How to get all the MaximDL filters loaded

    I have an FLI Centerline CFW with 2 wheels each holding 5 - 50mm square filters. MaximDL/FLI has 25 slots for all the possible combinations of which I use 21. My filter names are contiguous from 1-21 and MaximDL and FocusMax list all the slots. When I try to use the ACP Planner preferences setup and load the filters from MaximDL it loads the first 10 correctly but says the operation failed. I have not been able to find any documentation which will allow me to load a 21 slots. What am I missing.
    Thanks, Bob Donaldson

    This is a limitation of the Planner, I am sorry to say. I suggest you manually enter the 10 most frequently used, then manually edit in the more rarely used ones into the plan after generating it. Does a single plan use more than 10 filters? If not you could put in the filters that are going to be used for that plan, then create the plan. Also note that you can create multiple observatory profiles and each can have 10 filters. So if you make plans that use one set of filters, then for some other mission you use different filters, you can create a setup with different 10-filter sets. Does this help? If not let me know here and we can set up a phone call to work out solutions.

    I was able to reconfigure the filter wheel index to put the 9 filters I wanted first and deleted everything else. Now everything appears to work without error.
    Thanks

    Ah, OK. Well when/if you want to expand your observing to use different filter sets (up to 10) you can use the observatory profile feature. Thanks for letting us know you found a solution.
