Moravian Filter Wheel CCD-EFW-4M-5 for G4 series CCD cameras
The motorized filter wheel offers five places
for narrowband tricolor filters ([O III], H-alpha, [S II]) or LRGB
filters with additional line filter.
The wheel accepts 5 filters size 50 mm x 50 mm and is compatible with the Moravian off-axis guider, making it perfect for LRGB and narrowband tricolor photography.
Many astrophotographers prefer having all their filters combined in one unit. Common are LRGB filters with an additional H-alpha filter. In this filter wheel, all five filters can be inserted together, so it is the perfect solution for remote control!
Together, camera and filter wheel are extremely short. The entire distance is 33.5 mm from sensor to the outside of the filterwheel front housing.
The filterwheel gets its power and control commands from the camera from only one cable with RJ45 connector.
The filterwheel is directly screwed to the camera. Even then, there is enough space left for using telephoto lenses with the EOS-EF-Adapter.Necessary Software
SIPS software controlls the filterwheel and is included in the package, also the drivers for MaximDL and AstroArt are included.
