Our new high-quality Indigo Filter Wheel has
a 7 position carousel and can house 2inch mounted or 50mm unmounted filters.
One cable operation
Filter Wheel requires a USB2 (TypeB) cable only.
This simplifies the connectivity as it does not require a separate power supply
when used with USB control.
The body of the Indigo filter wheel is
aluminum CNC milled. High quality aluminum alloy allowed us to design
the filter wheel as thin as possible (19.0mm, 19.6mm with adapters installed on
Orientation on both adapters
Both sides of the filter wheel have M54 openings.
The screw slide adapter (image below) allows you to properly align the
orientation of your camera or telescope side. Just untie the screws and rotate
the adapter to the desired orientation.
The carousel has seven (7) slots and accepts 2-inch
mounted or 50mm unmounted filters. Filter Wheel rotates clock or
counterclockwise direction for filter selection. A combination of a direct
drive stepper motor and optical encoders ensures that your filter selection is
precise, and deadly accurate on every filter location.
screw holes on the camera side allow direct connection with astronomical
cameras that follow the same 6 x hole pattern (62mm diameter pattern). A neat
feature allows you to reduce the total back focus instead of placing adapters.
