The updated Wanderer Astro WandererRotator Mini V2 is a lightweight and ultra low-profile M54 motorized camera rotator. It is capable of high speed and precision, at up to 4.5 degrees/second with better than 0.1 degree accuracy. At only 10mm thick, the Mini rotator is ideal for setups where backfocus is limited.
In the release of the Mini V2 Wanderer Astro has added a 12V power input port which allows the rotator to be powered by 12V instead of directly through the USB port in the previous model. This avoids the problem of most passive hubs not being able to power the rotator. It has a 10mm optical path (from M54 to M54 thread), 420g weight, zero flexure, custom-set zero position and derotation functionality.
The WandererRotator Mini V2 is capable of holding a payload of up to 5kg with a center of gravity 10cm away from the rotator. The magnetic structure design guarantees zero flexure at any altitude. For users of alt-azimuth mounts and Dobsonians field de-rotation is supported. It is ASCOM compatible and can be controlled by modern astrophotography software such as N.I.N.A.
