Optec Alnitak Flip-Flat Fielder and Dust Cover for 7.625" - 8.125" OTAs
Alnitak Astrosystems' flagship product, the Flip-Flat, is a robotic lenscap and flat field illumination source for mid-size refractors. The Flip-Flat employs advanced electroluminescent panel technology to provide a uniform source of illumination for the production of high quality flat field frames necessary for serious astroimaging and photometric work. With the Flip-Flat, on-demand flat fields with uniformity errors less than ± 2% are now possible.
In addition to providing excellent flat fields, the Flip-Flat protects the objective lens of the telescope from dust that typically plagues remote installations where the user cannot manually replace the lens cap after an imaging session.
A simple Windows interface provides the ability to open and close the Flip-Flat and turn on the light source. The intensity of the light can be adjusted to one of 255 levels. A single USB cable (supplied with the Flip-Flat) powers and controls the unit. The Flip-Flat is completely integrated into the latest version of CCD Autopilot, and with the release of Maxim D/L version 5.0.7, the Flip-Flat is also fully integrated into Maxim.
The Flip-Flats are machined and assembled in the US from high quality materials and should give years of uninterrupted service. All Flip-Flats come with a one-year warranty.
