Assign colours to filters

Post by John_Gill » Tue May 21, 2019 7:22 am

Hi,

Although I can assign "Ha" to filter position 1 and "Red" to filter position2 etc, etc, I would like to assign a colour and the name to the the display.

space is not black

Hi,

I'm afraid I'm not quite understanding what you are trying to do here – please can you explain in a bit more detail.

Thanks, Robin

Hi,

I have set my filter wheel as follows:
1 - Lum
2 - Red
3 - Green
4 - Blue
5 - Ha
6 - Sii
7 - Oiii

Within Sharpcap under "Scope Controls", the filter boxes are labelled and I can select the filter I require. I would like to additionally assign colours to each filter "box" as below. (this makes for easier reading):
For example the filter boxes would have a colour and a name assigned to each box.
1 - White for Lum filter
2 - Red for Red filter
3 - Green for Green filter
4 - Blue for Blue filter
5 - Yellow for Ha Filter
6 - Cyan for Sii filter
7 - Magenta for Oiii filter

I hope this makes sense...
Regards
John

Okay, that makes sense now.

Let's see if we get any other votes in favour of this sort of feature

Cheers, Robin
