Hello,

I have to get a FW as part of a mono setup.  Which FWs (or FW manufacturers) are best & most stable w INDI/EKOS pls?  (I was looking at an Atik but then on further diligence came across the various problems folks have had w their drivers & INDI - which made me want to crowdsource tips for which are the best FWs that do consistently work w EKOS!).

Thank you,

Vin

Not sure about best as I don't have experience with any other wheels, because my Starlight Xpress USB wheel has worked flawlessly and doesn't require any external binary blobs to compile as it's a simple HID device.

Currently using the ZWO EFW with 5 2"filters. I recently added it to my configuration and it just worked. Although, I'm currently using a OSC for imaging, I have added a Optolong CLS-CCD filter and the L-extreme filter. The other filter is a Sybony dark filter for taking darks. Everything works smoothly and it's easy to select filters while you are imaging. Obviously with a mono camera you'll have different filters.
