Atik EFW2 Filter Wheel System with 5 x 50.8mm Carousel
|The Atik EFW2 filter wheel with 5 x 50.8mm filter carousel is for use with un-mounted 50.8mm (2") filters. |
The Atik EFW2 filter wheel employs interchangeable filter carousels and has large 54mm openings on both sides. Filter carousels are available in four sizes, including 1.25 and 2-inch, as well as 36 and 50mm. With these features, the EFW2 can easily support sensors up to full frame (35mm) format. The EFW2 also features a slick design, with a slim and lightweight profile. For example, the distance between any Atik camera and the wheel itself is 0mm, while still maintaining the possibility of rotating the camera to any desired position. Total extra backfocus needed will be only 22mm.
Of special interest to Atik 383L+ users is the short distance from the filters to the CCD. This means that popular 1.25-inch filters can be used with this sensor down to a focal ratio of f/5 without any relevant vignetting.
On the sofware side, the EFW2 has an ASCOM compliant driver, so that ant compliant software can control it. Additionally, the EFW2 can be controlled our Artemis Capture software, for easy, simple and efficient operation.
