The other thing I ran into was the USB cable "cover" for one of the ends came off. Dan offered to send me a new one; however it clamped back together and I put some tape around it to make sure it wouldn't happen again.
Otherwise, I'm still extremely happy with this filter wheel. Good price, good service! Thanks again Dan.

Does it include an LRGB filter set or not? The CN review gives the impression filters are included but the retail descriptions don't really say so one way or the other. I would prefer that it didn't, already have enough filters.
Does it come with a standalone control program that DOESN'T need ASCOM? Tried ASCOM once and didn't like it, don't need it for anything else. Not gonna install it again just to spin a filter wheel.

I have one of Xagyl's very early models of this wheel which worked great to begin with. However, it has now stopped working. My guess is that it's a problem with Windows updates. Xagyl response to my problem has been poor with a comment along the lines of 'oh you've got one of the really early ones, I'll get back to you' - no reply after 3 months so It's starting to feel a bit like they don't want to support this older model. I'll try them again and see if I get a more helpful response.
