- Questions & Answers
Product QuestionsI am looking for some filter wheel, which can be controlled by computer and also can fix some filter which I am using.
Would you give me some suggestion?
Can this be controlled by computer 64bit win-7?
Can I fix filter on it myself?
How long does is spend to ship to Japan?
I am looking forward for your reply.
Thank you.Question by: Gaia on Jul 12, 2015 11:47:00 PMThis filter wheel will work only if you have a QHY camera and if you are using 36mm filters, so if you have a different brand of camera or different filters this will likely have issues with your setup. It will work on Windows 7 64 bit and you can attach the 36mm filters yourself. Depending on shipping method, this can take from ~2-10 days to ship internationally.Answer by: Chris Hendren (Admin) on Jul 14, 2015 3:52:00 PMQuestion by: Alex on Jan 6, 2017 7:30:00 AMHello and thanks for your question. The 36 mm unmounted filter wheel will provide full coverage of the QHY 163's 4/3" sensor. Please note that the manufacturer states that this filter wheel is most compatible the QHY11,QHY21/22/23 and InterCam series cameras via 4-pin socketAnswer by: Anthony White (Admin) on Jan 6, 2017 3:11:00 PMYes, this filter wheel can be used, but you will need an M54 to M42 male to male adapter if the filter wheel does not include it. This adapter can be custom made to your length specifications - please contact us with questions. Also, you may need an external power supply for this filter wheel.Answer by: Chris Hendren (Admin) on Jan 6, 2017 3:09:00 PM
