Falcon V2 Features

  • The Pegasus Astro Falcon Rotator v2 represents a significant advancement in the field rotation of large aperture (M68) cameras, featurinh a lightweight and low-profile design.
  • The Falcon Rotator V2 is designed to work seamlessly with ASCOM Alpaca drivers and Unity Platform software.
  • To address cable tangling and clutter issues, the Falcon V2 rotator is limited clockwise at 220°. Beyond this limit, it automatically reverts in the opposite direction, preventing cables from tangling and reducing the risk of disconnection.
  • For user convenience, the Falcon V2 requires only one included USB-C cable for both power and data transmission. Additionally, WIFI capability is provided for wireless control via smartphone if desired.
  • When used with an Altaz mount, the Pegasus Astro Falcon V2, equipped with the included Unity Platform, incorporates Rate of Rotation (RoR) calculations. These calculations take into account the observer's latitude, the current altitude of the intended celestial object, and more.

Lightweight and Low Profile Design - Perfect for Short Backfocus Applications

The Pegaus Astro Falcon Rotator v2 significantly advances large aperture (M68) camera field rotation, having both a lightweight and low profile design to add minimal initial backfocus (15.5mm) with options to add spacers and adapters to increase it, yet being able to withstand higher end equipment with excessive payload of up to 13 lbs. The internal bearings can manage this payload with virtually no flexure.

ASCOM Alpaca Compatibility

To ensure maximum and seamless compatibility with a wide range of imaging configurations, the Falcon Rotator V2 is compatible with ASCOM Alpaca drivers and Unity Platform software. Equipped with an integrated web server, the user can communicate with the software right out of the box and allow adjustment of field rotation by the user. It can also be monitored by a smartphone via a web browser.

Efficient Cable Management

To prevent any cable tangling or clutter, the Falcon V2 rotator's limit is clockwise at 220°, for which anything further it will revert in the opposite direction. This prevents cables from being tangled and risk of disconnection.

One USB-C Cable for Power and Data

To create a seamless easy to use peripheral accessory for imagers, only one USB-C cable is needed (included) to power the Falcon V2 and transmit data. WIFI is also available for wireless control with a smartphone if needed!

RoR Calculation

When the Pegasus Astro Falcon V2 is being used with an Altaz mount, its included Unity Platform implements Rate of Rotation (RoR) calculations that looks at the observer's latitude, current altitude of the intended celestial object and more. This micro step drive RoR adjusts rotation accordingly based upon these factors at a stunning precise accuracy of 5 arc seconds.
