Starlight Xpress 'Maxi' Wheel- 9x50.8mm Unmounted with Inbuilt OAG

The 'Maxi' Wheel- 9x50.8 mm Unmounted with Inbuilt OAG by Starlight Xpress:

This Starlight Xpress Maxi filter wheel takes it up a notch and elevates quality filter management to a whole new level. This is Starlight Xpress's new large format filter wheel, primarily intended for use with the SX-35 and 36. It is a nine-position filter wheel threaded for 50.8 mm sized filters, and benefits heavily from an inbuilt Off-Axis-Guider.

An Off-Axis-Guider has been added as a bonus, this OAG is is built-in! Now this Maxi Wheel provides both convenient filter-changing between up to nine 50.8 mm filters and off-axis guiding for whatever camera you choose to attach it to.

The Maxi model makes use of input and output adapters that are M72 x 1 mm (male and female). These adapters are both removable and also may be oriented at any rotational angle to set the wheel and camera into optimal positions. The standard 72 mm x 1 mm thread adapters may be replaced with other versions, simply by unscrewing three fixing bolts.

This filter wheel includes a new motor system, another field in which it greatly surpasses older models. Instead of the typical stepper motor most filter wheels use, the SX Maxi Wheel makes use of an internal sub-miniature DC motor which consumes far less power. The internal motor bypasses the need for bulky external power supply systems, and greatly cuts down on the overall size.

And on top of all that, this filter wheel takes it to a whole other level in yet another fine way by also providing vibration-free filter transfers due to the small size of the motor.

The Maxi Wheel is also suitable for smaller chip cameras. If you want to make use of it with them we stock numerous adapters to help you attach it to a wider variety of cameras as needed!
