Ask a Question About This Product

Pegasus Astro – Falcon Rotator is a light-weighted, low profile camera field rotator. Do not be fooled by its thin size! It can lift and handle heavy image trains – dead accurate! Very easy to operate via ASCOM drivers or standalone software will make your life easier to automatically adjust with precision your camera field.

Falcon Rotator

Low profile / M54 threaded

Thickness of the rotator is 18mm / 0.7”.
When you use the M54 to M48 adapter the backfocus is +1mm (18+1 = 19mm)
Weight is 700grams. Both openings of the rotator are M54 threaded (pitch 0.75mm)

Adapters for both sides (included)

We provide two different adapters for both sides:

  • Telescope Side: M54 male to 2” Nosepiece (1.5mm thickness)
  • Camera Side: M54 Male to M48 Male Adapter (2.0mm thickness)

    For optional adapters click here

The M54 adapter black ring on the camera side of the Falcon Rotator sticks out by almost 1mm (so actual back-focus is 18+1 =19mm)

Backfocus drawing can be found below (click for enlarge):

If you use the nosepiece and the M54 adapter this sums a 22.5mm of backfocus
(Nosepiece is 1.5mm + 19mm rotator + 2mm M54 Male to M48 Male)

Precise rotation

A powerful geared / low backlash stepper motor ensures that the rotator will lock to the designated degrees. Mechanics inside the focuser guarantee zero flex in any point during a full circle rotation.

Falcon Rotator

Rated load

Falcon Rotator has been tested at 6Kg / 13.2lbs of imaging setup.
The 6 stainless steel branded bearings can easily handle higher payloads with zero flexure.

Cable Wrap Prevention

Rotator does not allow a clockwise turn above 220 degrees. It will turn anti-clockwise when it has to be moved above 220 degrees. A nice cable wrap/snag prevention feature out of the box.

Optional adapters available

De-Rotation support for Alt/Az mounts

Rotator has the mechanical precision to achieve field de-rotation. Supplied software calculates Rate of Rotation (RoR) based on the site latitude, target altitude and azimuth position.

INDI is also supported via latest (currently nightly build) of INDI

Standalone Software
