About this product
Part Number: PEG-ROT-FALCON
Pegasus Astro Falcon Rotator
The Falcon Rotator is a lightweight, low-profile camera field rotator.
Do not be fooled by its thin size! It can lift and handle heavy image trains and is very accurate!
Very easy to operate via ASCOM drivers or Unity Platform software, it will make your life easier to orient, with precision, your camera field automatically.
- Precise Rotation with Zero Flex
- Sophisticated Mechanical Design Featuring 6 Stainless Steel Bearings
- Low Profile - only 18mm!
- Weighs only 700g
- 6kg / 13.2lb Payload Capacity
- Cable Wrap Prevention
- Supports Long Exposure De-Rotation for Alt/Az Mounts
- Supported by ASCOM and INDI
Cable Wrap Prevention
Rotator does not allow a clockwise turn above 220 degrees. It will turn anti-clockwise when it has to be moved above 220 degrees.
A nice cable wrap/snag prevention feature out of the box.
Adapters for both sides (included)
Supplied with two different adapters for both sides:
- Telescope Side: M54 male to 2” Nosepiece (1.5mm thickness)
- Camera Side: M54 Male to M48 Male Adapter (2.0mm thickness)
The M54 adapter black ring on the camera side of the Falcon Rotator sticks out by almost 1mm (so the actual back-focus is 18+1 =19mm)
De-Rotation support for Alt/Az mounts
Rotator has the mechanical precision to achieve field de-rotation. Supplied software calculates the Rate of Rotation (RoR) based on the site latitude, target altitude and azimuth position.
Examples of images taken with Falcon Rotator & Derotation on a Dobsonian Telescope
Rotator fully supports the latest ASCOM 6.5.
INDI and INDIGO fully support the rotator.
Control the Falcon Rotator from the supplied standalone Windows software.
Unity Platform Support
Pegasus Astro Unity Platform is their new all-around application. We aim to provide a robust and modern application supporting current and future products under one roof.
A modern front end allows complete control of all Pegasus Astro devices.
Moreover, a REST JSON api helps developers from 3rd party software to interact with our products.
