Low Profile/M54 Threaded
The rotator is 18 mm (0.7") thick and weighs 700 grams. Both openings features M54 threads (pitch 0.75mm).
Pegasus Astro provides two different adapters for both sides:
- Telescope Side: M54 male to 2" nosepiece (1.5mm thickness)
- Camera Side: M54 male to M48 male adapter (2.0mm thickness)
If you use the nosepiece and the M54 adapter, this is a total 22.5mm of backfocus (nosepiece is 1.5mm + 19mm rotator + 2mm M54 Male to M48 Male).
A powerful geared/low backlash stepper motor ensures that the rotator will lock to the designated degrees. Mechanics inside the focuser guarantee zero flex in any point during a full circle rotation.
The Falcon Rotator has been tested at 6kg/13.2 pounds of imaging setup. The six stainless steel branded bearings can easily handle higher payloads with zero flexure.
De-Rotation Support for ALT/AZ Mounts
The Rotator has the mechanical precision to achieve field de-rotations. Supplied software calculates Rate of Rotation (RoR) based on the site latitude, target altitude, and azimuth position.
ASCOM and INDI Support
Rotator fully supports latest ASCOM 6.5; INDI is also supported via latest build in INDI.
Control the Falcon Rotator from the supplied standalone Windows software.
