This is an older, 6 position 1.25" Andy Homeyer motorized filter wheel with integrated Flip Mirror. The wheel comes with a little 110vac to 18vdc power supply, the original multi-colored LED hand pad controller / position indicator and several adapters for SCT telescopes / SBIG cameras. Communications to a computer are via a COM channel or the SBIG general purpose computer box AUX port. Programs like CCDSoft and MAXIM support the wheel for automated operation. This wheel is fully operational, but like any 10+ year old toy, it has senior moments sometimes and requires a little TLC. Homeyer parafocal flip mirror with Meade CCD framing EP ( less the LED illuminator). EP has the outlines for popular CCD's from back in the day. 1.25" barrel adapter included for non SCT telescope attachment. FW mirror locks up, down and is adjustable for centering image. Also included: one set of first generation SBIG LRGB & IR block filters. SBIG sold these for use with the ST-6 about 10 years ago, but they are still fine for learning RGB. The set consist of R, G, B, Clear, and IR block past 700nm. The filters are dichroic ( made by Custom Scientific I think ) and are not just colored glass. Some custom machining done to filter wheel housing to allow change out of filters without disassembly of wheel. Reason for selling..... I am moving up to 2" filters. All or nothing $575 shipped US. Will ship internationally but I am only picking up the first $25 of shipping ( note : the SCT telecompressor and highly modified ST-6 in the picture below are not part of the package. ) Also have a set of Astronomik Ha, Hb and OIII filters and a set of home made ( from Edmund Scientific filter stock) Near Infrared filters. Thanks for looking :_)))
