Moves the TAURUS focal plane filter wheel to the specified position.
Format: TFFILTER <position>
Range: <position> is an integer in the range --8 to 8 or the name of the filter.
Examples : TFFILTER 3 or TFFILTER HARRIS-V
Comments: There are 8 filter wheel positions. These can be selected either by specifying a number between --8 and 8, or by specifying the filter name. In normal operation the parameter should be positive. If the parameter is negative, the wheel will not be clamped on completion of the move, and the position of the wheel will become undefined.
This command automatically disengages the tilt mechanism before the wheel is moved, and sets the tilt to zero on completion.
