Hi Hamza,

I am using a ZWO Filter Wheel that connects via ASCOM to Prism. When I select an ASCOM Filter Wheel in Hardware Settings, I don't see the dialog used to enter filter names for each filter number. That dialog appears for the FLI filter wheel and probably others, but not ASCOM.

How do I tell Prism the names I want to use for my ZWO filter wheel positions? I'd rather have my image headers tagged with LRGB/SHO than 1234567.

when you choose Hardware setup then filterwheel #1, you should be presented with a "setup" button on the bottom right where you can set your filterwheel names. PRISM will then pull the name from ASCOM as you name them. If this is not the case, please post a picture of what you're seeing please.
