Atik EFW2.2 Electronic Filter Wheel
with 5 Position Carousel for 2" Mounted Filters

The Atik EFW2.2 Electronic Filter Wheel is slim & lightweight, with just 22mm of extra back focus! In fact, the distance between any Atik camera and the EFW2.2 Filter Wheel is zero millimeters (0 mm) while still allowing you to rotate your camera to any position required for the best shot. This model comes with a 5-position carousel for standard 2" threaded filters, however, should you decide to change the size of your filters at some point, there are three other disks available that are interchangeable.

The Atik EFW2.2 features a mechanical location system to ensure that your filters are always in the exact same position every time. This is especially important when flat-field imaging! If you know that the optical characteristics are the same from frame to frame, then you can more easily handle any anomalies (like dust) that appear.

As for software, the Atik EFW2.2 has an ASCOM compliant driver, so that ANY compliant software can control it. Additionally, the EFW2.2 can be controlled by Atik's Artemis Capture software, for easy, simple, efficient operation.
