With the new motorized filter wheel EFW2, Atik completes its accessory range for the high-quality CCD cameras with big sensors. Of course this filter wheel can be remote controlled by PC.
Following filters can be used:
-- 7x 36 mm unmounted filters
M54 connection thread and 2" nosepiece at telescope side:
The filter wheel is standard equipped with a 2" nosepiece screwed into a female M54 thread. If you want, you can adapt other connections (T2, SC...) easily.
T2 thread on the camera side:
Most CCD cameras have a T2 thread or can be adapted to it. An adapter to M54 is available optionally.
Extremely flat design - 22mm only:
With an optical length of 22mm, this filter weel is one of the most slim 2" designs that we know.
Motor with USB controller included:
The EFW2 is motorized, ASCOM compatible and can therefore be controlled by nearly all softwares like AstroArt or MaxIm. The included Artemis capture software also allows easy and efficient handling. A handbox for cable remote control is available optionally.
