    This camera worked well since a long time with MaximDL5, also after a Notebook change and with MaximDL 6.13. After some months without use all drivers were updated, and after this the filterwheel does not work anymore. Camera and guider are working, FW is dedected. But no movement possible.
    But when using CCDOPS it works!
    Also with a demo download of the latest MaximDL version on a different PC.

    So it seems to be a incompability of the latest drivers with MaximDL 6.13.
    Updating to the latest MaximDL version is not an option as the update licence has expired and it would mean buying it new.

    You can in fact upgrade to the current release; you don't have to pay the full price.

    That said, we haven't touched the filter wheel code. Most likely it is a configuration error.

    Please ZIP and upload your settings folder, which is located in Documents\MaxIm DL 6\Settings.

    Ok, this would explain why it works on a different PC.
    Settings folder is uploaded, STXL was the latest one used (multiple camera usage on this PC).

    Under the filter wheel setup, change Model from CFW8 to Standard.
