False Filter Entry in FITS Header #51688
Hi,

with KStars 3.4.1 on MAC I recognized strange filter name entries in the FITS header. My setup show 'R', 'G', 'B', 'L' for example. in R is say 'Red ' in b it says 'Blue' but for example in L is says 'H alpha'. Do I have to set the names elsewhere ? The filter setting I get via INDI protocol show the right naming as they do in filter setting in EKOS. Interesting was that EKOS did automatically split the directories for Light in R, G, B, L (which are excactly the naming), and the string in the FITS file name was correct,



too, but the Header Entries were wrong:



Any Ideas ?

Michel

in the CCD Driver --> Options --> what was the ACTIVE_FILTER set to? it snoops filter names from this driver. It could be itself as well if the CCD has an internal filter wheel.

in Ekos, is QSI selected as the filter wheel as well? It appears to be the CCD Simulator filter wheel that is getting written.

Jasem,
in profile editor I can't set QSI as filter. So there it's none. I sorted out the problem and removed the CCDSimulator as possible problem from the INDI server. So it should now be impossible to use it.
