Rigel Systems usb-nFRAME Updates

Rigel Systems has announced updates to its usb-nFRAME camera rotator and framer with a complete redesign to offer a thinner and more rigid package. It utilizes a powerful stepper motor under the usb-nFRAME controller’s guidance, ensuring angular accuracy and repeatability to fractions of a degree. Its software is fully ASCOM compliant for rotation control from higher level autofocus software as well as manually from a PC.

Rigel Systems usb-nFRAME UpdatesIt features native M54 (male) threads on both telescope and camera sides. Adapters for M54 to M48, M42, and other threads are available upon request to fit various field flatteners, camera T adapters, T-thread spacers, off-axis guiders, filter wheels, and imagers.

The usb-nFRAME functionality includes:

– Adds just 21mm to the length to an imaging stack

– Robust ASCOM drivers for Windows

– Angle positioning by PC from -10 to +370 degrees

– Go To Angle plus 5 user defined stored positions

– Rigid design avoids flexure as powerful stepper motor ensures angular accuracy and repeatability

– All necessary USB, stepper, and power cables included in the package.

The usb-nFRAME is easy to operate via ASCOM drivers or higher-level apps to automatically adjust a camera field with precision. Interfacing with the computer is extremely simple. Just plug in the USB, 12VDC and stepper cable, let Windows install the drivers, open up the usb-nFRAME ASCOM app to connect and start using the rotator.
