Summary0001967: manual filter wheel or filter drawer option

I am hoping CCDciel can add manual filter wheel or filter drawer option for those who doesn't have EFW.

1. Manual Filter Wheel is used when we have a filter wheel that is not computer controlled, but
still want to have the benefit of the sequencing, file naming, and FITs headers found within CCDciel.
2. We may setup the Manual Filter Wheel just like a normal filter wheel in the Filter Setup dialog in CCDciel.
3. Whenever a filter change is requested a dialog box will pop up asking us to manually change the filter.
4. This dialog will pause the sequence and any other actions currently taking place until "OK" has been
TagsNo tags attached.

Are you sure no one write and ASCOM driver that do that?
This can be very simple to do by using the filter simulator driver and just add a prompt dialog when the position is set.

This is more complicated to implement in CCDciel because at the moment no non-ascom device are supported and adding this simple function require global change in program to add support for non-ascom devices.

You are right, there is no ASCOM driver for it and I don't mind using the filter simulator with prompt dialog. :) Thanks.
