Product Details

  • Starlight Xpress USB Filter Wheel

    The Starlight Xpress USB filter wheel introduces many new features to a useful imaging accessory. It 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.

    The Starlight Xpress USB filter wheel is light and slim, with an easy change system of thumbscrews to swap filter disks without tools. A variety of threaded adaptors is available - T thread, SCT thread and Takahashi 72mm thread at the moment. The adaptors can be swapped by using a small screwdriver to release three stainless screws and lifting off the adaptor flange. Each flange can be rotated to any angle before locking down, so that you can orient the wheel and camera into the optimum position.

    The Starlight Xpress USB filter wheel is quiet in operation and the Hall-Effect 3 bit encoded positioning gives absolute filter locations (not serially sequential) so you can easily swap between any filters without accidentally losing the wheel position.

    Well, that was easy.

    This filter wheel "just works" in ASCOM. I loaded and mounted it, and it immediately connected and is able to move to any of the 5 positions with a single click. Great stuff, looking forward to easier narrowband imaging!

    Works great.

    Easy to mount with the numerous thread adapters needed for focuser and camera sides. Simple USB 2.0 connector. I’m using it with my QHY247C color camera and a Triad Ultra Quad narrowband, Optolong L-Pro and Baader Neodymium broadband filters. The filter cover is also very simple to remove so I can easily add or swap out filters. The filter slots are numbered so I just need to update the imaging software with what filter is in each slot.

    SX Filter Wheel 5 position 2"

    This is a tried and true design that does exactly what it is supposed to without attracting any attention.
