    SKU: FW5-STX


Product Description

Special order only.

The SBIG FW5-STX is a 5-Position, 65mm square filter wheel for STX series cameras.  65mm square filters allow the use of the built-in guider (if equipped) while imaging through LRGB filters.

For 50mm square photometric and narrowband filters, and external guiding, use the FW7-STX filter wheel and the StarChaser SC-3.

Note:  This product is obsolete but is still available (built to order) to support older STX camera models with built-in guide sensors.  We strongly recommend using the FW7-STX with 50 mm filters instead, and the StarChaser SC-3 Off-Axis Guide Camera if autoguiding is required.  This is a more effective solution since it moves the guide sensor ahead of the filters.
