Starlight Xpress FilterWheel 7 holders disk.

This new USB filter wheel does not require a separate power supply when used with a USB cable to the PC, the DC gear motor runs entirely from the USB supply. The cover wheel can host 50mm and 32.5mm filters (5 or 7 respectably). The screwing of the filters are very simple, just uplift the wheel disk and screw them from the bottom.

This model has an internal 5 position 2 inch filter holder. Connections SCT- female input & T- male output.

The carousal can be easly removed from the base, and filters are srcrew under the disk and not on top of the disk.

The side of the wheel, you will noticed two female adapters. The USB B adapter will connected to the CCD camera, and the telephone adaptor can connect to the mount.
