About this product
Part Number: SXMDFW-2T
This new MIDI USB filter from Starlight Xpress is unique in that it does not require a separate power supply when used with USB control - the high performance DC gear-motor runs entirely from the USB supply and consumes less than 100mA. It is also capable of operation from a serial input or from a switched hand controller, both of which power the wheel from a small dry battery.
Further more the new MIDI Filter Wheel includes a built in Off Axis Guider that is directly compatible with the Lodestar X2 and Ultrastar Autoguiders but can also be adapted for use with non Starlight Xpress Autoguiders.
Light and slim with thumbscrews for quick and easy swapping of filter disks without tools.
Quiet in operation and the Hall-Effect 3-bit encoded positioning gives precise filter locations (not serially sequential) so you can easily swap between any filters without accidentally losing the wheel position.
A variety of threaded adapters are available starting with: T thread, SCT thread and Takahashi 72mm thread.
To change adapters simply use a small screwdriver to release three stainless screws then lift off the adapter flange. Each flange can be rotated to any angle before locking down so the wheel and camera can be orientated into the optimum position.
Another premium-quality product from a British manufacturer!

Similar to the Mini Filter Wheel, the new SX MIDI OAG integrated filter wheel is very well built. It is easy to setup and connects immediately. The combination of the OAG integrated with the filter wheel, along with its overall excellent construction, makes this accessory a winner. Sitting on my C11" EdgeHD high up in my observatory, it works seamlessly.
