The new low-profile PlaneWave Series-5 Rotator is a large capacity, stackable field derotator for use with Alt-Az or equatorially mounted systems. The rotator is capable of lifting 40 lbs (18 kg) with a travel range of 700 degrees between mechanical hardstops.
It has a large clear aperture of 5" (127mm) and an optical thickness of 1.105" (28mm). The Series-5 Rotator can be stacked with the Series-5 Focuser for a complete focuser/rotator solution.
Initially designed for the Delta Rho 350, the Series-5 Rotator is also compatible with the CDK12.5, CDK14, CDK17, CDK20, CDK24, and the CDK700. Controlled via PWI4 software for autofocusing and optional field de-rotation (if using an Alt/Az mounted system).
The Series-5 Rotator requires the Series-5 Controller in order to function.
