ATIK EFW-3 Filter Wheel

The EFW3 is ideal for use with large format cameras due to its ability to carry up to 7Χ50.8mm unmounted or 7Χ2” mounted round filters. This means you can house both LRGB and Ha, OIII and SII filter sets in the same carousel, adding more freedom and convenience to your imaging set up.

For a large format wheel, the EFW3 boasts a slim, lightweight design. It measures 238Χ213mm dimensions and weighs in at just approx. 850g. This is great news for large format set ups where weight can be a real concern. That said, the wheel is fully compatible with any Atik camera when using the supplied M54 adapter or alternately the optional M42. We’ve simplified the technical side of the design from the EFW2 to further improve reliability and minimise component wear and tear. However, it’s still machined from solid aluminium to produce a durable and quality wheel that will keep turning, night after night.

Atik 16200 users will also be pleased to know that the EFW3 can be attached directly to the camera as it is or after removing the front plate, further minimising any backfocus requirements.

On the software side of things, the EFW3 has a full ASCOM driver, so any complaint software can be used to control it. Additionally the EFW3 can be controlled using our Artemis Capture software, for simple and efficient operation.

Starlight Xpress USB Filter Wheel

The Starlight Xpress USB filter wheel is a new product for 2009 and introduces many new features to a useful imaging accessory. It is unique in that it does not require a separate power supply when used with USB control - the high performance DC gearmotor runs entirely from the USB supply and consumes less than 100mA. It is also capable of operation from a serial input, or from a switched hand controller, both of which power the wheel from a small dry battery.

The wheel is light and slim, with an easy change system of thumbscrews to swap filter disks without tools. A variety of threaded adaptors is available - T thread, SCT thread and Takahashi 72mm thread at the moment. The adaptors can be swapped by using a small screwdriver to release three stainless screws and lifting off the adaptor flange. Each flange can be rotated to any angle before locking down, so that you can orient the wheel and camera into the optimum position.

The wheel is quiet in operation and the Hall-Effect 3 bit encoded positioning gives absolute filter locations (not serially sequential) so you can easily swap between any filters without accidentally losing the wheel position.

Technical Specs:

Available with either 7 position 1.25" Carousel or
5 position 48mm carousel.
