The recently introduced OGMA Filter Wheels continues to build upon the offerings from OGMA, which is a new company located in Raleigh, North Carolina that debuted its first astroimaging products at the beginning of 2023. These latest filter wheel offerings include a filter wheel with five positions for 2-inch mounted filters and a filter wheel with seven positions for 36mm unmounted filters.
Each filter is powered and managed through a USB 2.0 port and no other power source is needed. Each filter weighs approximately 18.5 ounces (525 grams). The filter wheels are integrated into OGMA’s latest ASCOM driver and can be used with automation software compatible with the ASCOM platform.
The Ogma Filter Wheels can be easily connected to:
– All Ogma cooled cameras.
– The Newest Touptek cooled cameras that share the same front plate as OGMA.
– The older Touptek cooled cameras, through the large M42 thread around the sensor.
– Most ZWO cooled cameras that have six tapped holes distributed on a circumference of 62 mm in diameter for M2.5 screws.
– Many QHY cameras that have six tapped holes distributed on a circumference of 62 mm in diameter for M2.5. This will require six screws M3.
In addition, the package includes three adapters with the most commonly used thread for astrophotography. These adapters can be used to connect the filter wheel to a variety of cameras and telescopes.
