Large Aperture - Slim Design
The Falcon Rotator 2 has an impressively low profile, slim 15.5mm backfocus thickness and features openings on both sides with an M68 (2.67 inches) x 1mm pitch thread. The motor has been strategically positioned away from the optical axis to ensure it does not interfere with your equipment.

Field De-Rotation Support for Alt-AZ Mounts
Rotator has the mechanical precision to achieve field de-rotation. Supplied Unity Platform calculates Rate of Rotation (RoR) based on the site latitude, target altitude and azimuth position. By fine-tuning the micro-step drive control of the motor, derotation can achieve an resolution as precise as 5 arc-seconds.

ASCOM Alpaca Native Support

Falcon Rotator v2 offers Alpaca native support and a convenient web interface for easy smartphone control of your device. ASCOM Alpaca outshines classic ASCOM drivers with its platform independence, modern web standards, streamlined installation, remote control capabilities, extensibility, and open-source options. This ensures superior compatibility and user-friendly performance, making it the preferred choice for advanced astronomy applications.

Falcon Rotator v2 comes equipped with an integrated web server that seamlessly communicates with Alpaca clients natively. This integration enhances the user experience by providing easy access to image-rotation control through ASCOM Alpaca but also monitoring from any device with a web browser such as a smart phone.

Cable Wrap Prevention
The Falcon Rotator v2 does not allow a clockwise turn above 220 degrees. It will turn counterclockwise when it has to be moved above 220 degrees. A nice cable wrap/snag prevention feature out of the box!
