The Orion 2″ StarShoot Motorized Filter Wheel and LRGB Filter Set Package offers automatic and trouble free filter transitions for your monochrome imaging setup a well as helping to save imaging time.
To easily transition filters for automatic LRGB (Luminance, Red, Green, and Blue) imaging, simply load up the four included filters into the StarShoot Motorized Filter Wheel and use your imaging software to change filters automatically.
Let your PC do the work while it grabs the separate exposures through each filter. Versatile threading and adapters provide several attachment methods, including T-threads for focusers with camera adapters, a removable 2″ nosepiece and a removable T-thread adapter for camera attachment.
The StarShoot Motorized Filter Wheel is powered by a USB port, needing no other cable or power and is ASCOM and Windows 10 compatible. Consuming only 1″ of focus travel, the filter wheel is ideal for use with a mono chip camera, but can also be used with color cameras when you want to switch between filters such as light pollution or neutral density filters.
The 2″ LRGB filter set is useful for a variety of imaging systems including larger format CCD and CMOS cameras. Included are red, blue, and green astrophotography filters plus a haze-eliminating luminance filter. All filters in the set block ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) wavelengths for higher contrast CCD images and consist of metal filter cell construction.
The filters are designed for creating high-quality composite color astrophotos of deep sky objects with monochrome imaging cameras. Combining separate images taken through these four filters with a monochrome camera provides a higher resolution final image with better color rendition than an image from a comparably sized color chip.
Orion’s 2″ LRGB filter set features dichroic glass filters designed for maximum light transmission. The color filters have an IR (infrared) and UV (ultraviolet) blocking coating, and all filters are parfocal to eliminate the tedious task of refocusing between exposure sets. A foam-lined filter case included.
The complete StarShoot Motorized Filter Wheel package includes the filter wheel, LRGB filter set, USB cable, foam-lined filter case and hex wrench. You can learn more here.
Orion also has a number of other new imaging offerings including the new Orion Telescope and Binoculars’ StarShoot Mini cameras in color and monochrome.
