The updated Wanderer Astro WandererRotator Lite V2 is an ultra lightweight and low-profile M68 motorized camera rotator. It is capable of high speed and precision, at up to 3.5 degrees/second with better than 0.1 degree accuracy. The wide 68mm aperture offers excellent illumination and the ultra-low 12mm profile is perfect for systems with limited back focus.
Highlights of the updates of the new WandererRotator Lite V2 include:
– Updated design which offers a lower weight of 550g.
– The Type-C port is changed to Type-B port for a stronger connection.
– A more powerful motor eliminates a potential stalling problem of the pervious stepper motor.
– Due to the redesign of the transmission structure, the rotation speed is reduced to 3.5 degrees per second.
The Lite rotator is capable of a payload of up to 5Kg with a center of gravity 15cm away from the rotator. WandererAstro’s magnetic structure design guarantees zero flexure at any altitude. For users of alt-azimuth mounts and Dobsonians, field de-rotation is supported. The rotator is powered from a 12V 1A DC source and controlled from a USB type C port. It is ASCOM compatible and can be controlled by modern astrophotography software such as N.I.N.A.
