Pegasus Falcon Rotator v2

The Falcon Rotator v2 is our new camera field rotator that impresses with its lightweight, low-profile design. Despite its slim profile, it possesses the remarkable capability to manage and accurately position even heavy image trains.

Operating the Falcon Rotator 2 is a seamless experience, thanks to its compatibility with classic ASCOM, native ASCOM Alpaca drivers and the Unity Platform software. This user-friendly design simplifies the process of automatically and precisely orienting your camera field, making your astrophotography endevors significantly more convenient and efficient.

Precise rotation

A powerful geared, low backlash stepper motor ensures that rotator will be precisely positioned to the designated degrees.

One Cable Operation

The rotator can be connected with a USB-C cable for both power and data, reducing complexity in your telescope setup. Additionally, it’s Wi-Fi enabled, allowing you to control your field rotation remotely from your mobile phone.

Rated load

Falcon Rotator v2 has been tested at 6Kg or 13 lbs of imaging setup. The mechanical design allows to custom tighten internal bearing that can easily handle high payloads with nearly zero flexure.

Quick Overview

  • Large Aperture: M68 opening on both sides
  • Slim Backfocus: 15.5mm
  • De-Rotation support: For Alt-AZ field derotation
  • USB-C Connectivity: Single cable for power and data.
  • Rotates heavy imaging gear. Up to 6Kg
  • Wi-Fi Enabled: Hotspot and Wireless 2.4GHz client support.
  • ASCOM Alpaca Support: Seamless integration with popular software.
  • Firmware Upgradability: Future-proof with software updates

Large aperture in a slim design

The Falcon Rotator 2 has an impressively low profile, slim 15.5mm backfocus thickness and features openings on both sides with an M68 (2.67 inches) x 1mm pitch thread.

The motor has been strategically positioned away from the optical axis to ensure it does not interfere with your equipment.

Field De-Rotation support for Alt-Az mounts

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

By fine-tuning the micro-step drive control of the motor, derotation can achieve an resolution as precise as 5 arc-seconds.

ASCOM Alpaca Native Support

Falcon Rotator v2 offers Alpaca native support and a convenient web interface for easy smartphone control of your device.

ASCOM Alpaca outshines classic ASCOM drivers with its platform independence, modern web standards, streamlined installation, remote control capabilities, extensibility, and open-source options. This ensures superior compatibility and user-friendly performance, making it the preferred choice for advanced astronomy applications.

Falcon Rotator v2 comes equipped with an integrated web server that seamlessly communicates with Alpaca clients natively. This integration enhances the user experience by providing easy access to image-rotation control through ASCOM Alpaca but also monitoring from any device with a web browser such as a smart phone.

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.
