Filter mechanism

During the installation of StanCam a major problem was found with the filter exchange mechanism which was due to problems with the rubber belt that moves the filters in and out. This was repaired, but still some problems remain, and only 6 of the 9 filter slots can be used.

The filter mechanism has apparently never worked as specified, and we maybe should consider making a better system which is more reliable and easier to maintain.
