    Perfect Rotator

    I have using the Pegasus Astro falcon rotator for about a month and it is a pleasure to use. I am currently using with NINA doing mosaics. It is amazing how precise it is. My setup consists of a AT130EDT with a Moonlite focuser attached to the astro pegasus astro UPB v2. I always wanted to do mosaics and did not want to do do manual rotation. This rotator allows me to setup the sequence and off it goes and it is repeatable night after night. Highly recommend this rotator.
