Starlight Xpress SXMFW-UM36T Overview

Ideal for portable rigs, the Starlight Xpress Mini Filter Wheel with 5-Position 36mm Round Carousel is an invaluable astrophotography companion for capturing views of planets, nebulae, and other celestial objects in targeted wavelengths using up to five 36mm round and unmounted filters. This is just the filter wheel assembly; user-supplied filters are required to be loaded into the carousel for use.

The Mini Filter Wheel is ASCOM compatible and controlled using the included software as well as most popular third-party Windows astrophotography software, such as Sky X, AstroArt, and MaximDL, and does not require special drivers to be recognized. Simple commands program up to five positions to set a capture sequence and to ensure that there is no confusion as to the current filter selection. A miniature DC motor drive rotates the filter carousel and is powered by standard 5V USB computer ports.

An integrated off-axis guider assembly accepts autoguiders such as SX's Lodestar X2 to feed data to the software to ensure you stay on target by making tracking adjustments in real time throughout the photography session. To connect the wheel to your telescope or integrate it into your imaging system—such as to field-flatteners, coma correctors, and other gear—it comes with a standard female T-2 ring on the telescope-dedicated side and a male T-2 ring on the camera-dedicated side.
