Electronic Filter Wheel to add colour to your images
The Atik EFW2 motorized filter wheel is available with multiple filter capability over a range of filter sizes. This wheel employs exchangeable filter disks, allowing for multiple combinations, and has large 54mm openings on both sides. 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″ filters can be used with this sensor down to f/5, without any relevant vignetting.
Filter disk options include 5×50.8mm, 5×2” mounted, 7x36mm and 9×1.25” mounted.
On the sofware side, the EFW2 has an ASCOM compliant driver, so that any compliant software can control it. Additionally, the EFW2 can be controlled our Artemis Capture software, for easy, simple and efficient operation.
