7 Position 2″ Electronic Filter Wheel for Large Format Cameras
The EFW3 is ideal for use with large format cameras due to its ability to carry up to 7×50.8mm unmounted or 7×2” mounted round filters. This means you can house both LRGB and Ha, OIII and SII filter sets in the same carousel, adding more freedom and convenience to your imaging set up.
For a large format wheel, the EFW3 boasts a slim, lightweight design. It measures 238×213mm dimensions and weighs in at just approx. 850g. This is great news for large format set ups where weight can be a real concern. That said, the wheel is fully compatible with any Atik camera when using the supplied M54 adapter or alternately the optional M42. We’ve simplified the technical side of the design from the EFW2 to further improve reliability and minimise component wear and tear. However, it’s still machined from solid aluminium to produce a durable and quality wheel that will keep turning, night after night.
Atik 16200 users will also be pleased to know that the EFW3 can be attached directly to the camera and, if the front plate is removed, the backfocus of that combination is reduced to just 34.5mm.
On the software side of things, the EFW3 has a full ASCOM driver, so any complaint software can be used to control it. Additionally the EFW3 can be controlled using our Artemis Capture software, for simple and efficient operation.
