SKU: WA-WR2-M68

Wanderer Astro


 

The WandererAstro WandererRotator Lite V2 is a lightweight and ultra low-profile M68 motorized rotator. It is capable of high speed and precision, at up to 3.5 degrees/second with better than 0.1 degree accuracy*. At only 12mm thick, the Lite rotator is ideal for setups where backfocus is limited.

The V2 version has a higher-torque motor and a more compact design.

 

 

The Lite rotator is capable of holding a payload of up to 5Kg with a centre of gravity 15cm away from the rotator.  WandererAstro's patented magnetic structure design guarantees zero flexure at any altitude. For users of alt-azimuth mounts and Dobsonians, field de-rotation is supported.

The Lite rotator is powered from a 12V 1A DC source and controlled from a USB type C port. The Lite rotator is ASCOM compatible and can be controlled by modern astrophotography software such as N.I.N.A.

 

 

*Accuracy can reach a maximum of 0.1 degrees after two attempts and after backlash compensation has been correctly set.
