    Again, using FW8G-STXL filter wheel. I'm doing some bench testing and I notice that when I do a test exposure of the guider, the main shutter is also opening. Is this supposed to be happening?
    Thanks

    The shutter control logic in the camera is a bit complicated. There's no harm in the camera doing that while the main imager is idle. If you take an exposure with the main chip, the shutter should remain in the open position while you are guiding.
