The Pegasus Astro Indigo 7-Position Electronic Filter Wheel offers a 7 position carousel and can house 2-inch mounted or 50mm unmounted filters. The filter wheel requires a USB2 (TypeB) cable which simplifies connectivity as it does not require a separate power supply when used with USB control.
The Filter Wheel rotates clock or counter clockwise direction for filter selection. A combination of a direct drive stepper motor and optical encoders ensure that your filter selection is precise and accurate on every filter location. The filter wheel takes the shortest path when moving from one filter to another.
The body of the Indigo filter wheel is aluminum CNC milled using high quality aluminum alloy which provides the opportunity to design the filter wheel as thin as possible (19.0mm, 19.6mm with adapters installed on both sides).
Both sides of the filter wheel have M54 openings. The screw slide adapter allows you to properly align the orientation of your camera or telescope side. Just undo the screws and rotate the adapter to the desired orientation.
The 6 screw holes on the camera side allows direct connection with astronomical cameras that follow the same 6 x hole pattern (62mm diameter pattern). This feature provides the ability to reduce the total backfocus instead of using adapters.
