    I would like to use Maxim DL for one of the following two imaging sequences:
    The equipment is:
    1. Maxim DL running in a portable computer
    2. Canon EOS 40D camera
    3. OPTEC IFW 5 position filter wheel
    6..Sequence of images:
    6 A set filter wheel to a first position
    6B take an image at a first shutter exposure (typically 1/800 second) through the first filter.
    The total eclipse is the object to be imaged. Tests show that this exposure gives a reasonable
    image for bright blue sky
    6C take a second image at a second shutter speed
    6D take a third image at a third shutter speed
    6D take a fourth image at a fourth shutter speed
    6E take a fifth mage at a fifth shutter speed
    7. advance the filter wheel one position to expose through a second filter
    8A. repeat taking images at each shutter speed mentioned in steps 6A, 6B, 6C, 6D, and 6E.
    8B. this procedure will produce an image at each shutter speed through each filter position of the filter wheel

    9. An alternate sequence of images would be to set a shutter speed, image through a selected filter, advance the filter wheel one position, take a second image at the same shutter speed but through the second filter, and repeat until a set of images through each filter at that shutter speed is taken.

    10. repeat 9 at several different shutter speeds

    Please suggest a way to program either sequence into Maxim DL.

    This way Maxim DL would make the imaging sequence automatic, so that it can be
    accomplished in the allotted 2 minutes.
