Barcelona Spain based AstronSCIENTIFIC, in collaboration with Tele Vue Optics and Optique Unterlinden of France, introduced the patented AstronSCIENTIFIC ROTARION SC, a universal motorized wheel for exchanging imaging devices remotely, at the Le Salon de L’astronomie at Rencontres du Ciel et de l’Espace 2018 in Paris France.

AstronSCIENTIFIC ROTARION SCThe Rotarion SC is a universal automatic electronic system for changing eyepieces on telescopes of any kind, either controlled remotely with a computer, through a user-friendly software or controlled locally with a hand control unit.

The AstronSCIENTIFIC ROTARION SC is equipped with electronics to precisely manage the automatic change of optics, aligning the selected eyepiece with the optical axis of the telescope. The system provides the ability to view the same sky object with different eyepiece magnifications. Selecting the wide field optic, it also works as a finder for relocating lost objects.

The Rotarion Photo accessory offers an automatic shutter compatible with imaging devices with a T-ring, so the user can change telescope magnifications without touching the imaging equipment mounted on the Rotarion photo accessory. Three eyepieces and the included prime focus adapter kit set makes telescopes compatible for planetary and DSO imaging without taking apart the telescope.

The available advanced Rotarion Autofocus system automatically adapts the focus to the selected optics making them parfocal and can even memorize the user’s fine tuning.

The Rotarion Cam SC includes the new Rotarion Remote Control Pro software which provides the ability to fine tune the backlash when rotating combinations of heavy and light weight cameras. The micrometric adjustment of the backlash always guarantees telescope optical axis even with unbalanced camera setups.
