pogee AFW50-9R, AFW50-7S, and AFW50-10S Filter Wheels for Aspen®, Alta® and Ascent® Models
The AFW50 series of filter wheels provide large format filtering solutions for all Aspen and Alta cameras and Ascent cameras with large format CCDs, such as the A16000. The AFW50-9R filter wheel provides 9 positions for 50mm / 2" round filters. The AFW50-7S and AFW50-10S provide 7 and 10 positions for 50mm / 2" square filters, respectively. The filter wheel are controlled via USB 2.0. The filter wheel easily adapts to the Ascent bodies. Apogee was the first to provide a precision locking mechanism on all of our filter wheels, insuring accurate positioning of each filter each time.
For astronomy applications, Apogee mates with the Monster Moag off axis guide system which incorporates a pick off mirror to a secondary guide camera.
