I have an ongoing problem with my QHY filter wheel, it will not select filters 2 or 3 when SGP calls for it. The wheel does select 1, 4, & 5 as commanded. I spoke with the supplier  and they suggested deleting and reinstalling the ASCOM driver, and when that did not work they provided a utility that runs under Windows to communicate direct to the wheel via COM3 and that does work but obviously cannot be ordered through SGP. The supplier has washed their hands of the problem, being that the wheel works driven by their utility.
So right now i cannot select filters through SGP sequence, but that had worked perfectly for over a year. No changes have been made to SGP, or ASCOM platform during this time.
Any ideas, its driving me crazy?
