Falcon Rotator


Pegasus Astro – Falcon Rotator is a light-weighted, low profile camera field rotator. Do not be fooled by its thin size! It can lift and handle heavy image trains – dead accurate! Very easy to operate via ASCOM drivers or standalone software will make your life easier to automatically adjust with precision your camera field.

Photorealistic images – Actual photos will follow soon

Low profile / M54 threaded

Thickness of the rotator is 18mm / 0.7”.
When you use the M54 to M48 adapter the backfocus is +1mm (18+1 = 19mm)
Weight is 700grams. Both openings of the rotator are M54 threaded

Adapters for both sides (included)

We provide two different adapters for both sides:

  • Telescope Side: M54 male to 2” Nosepiece
  • Camera Side: M54 Male to M48 Male Adapter

Precise rotation

A powerful geared / low backlash stepper motor ensures that the rotator will lock to the designated degrees. Mechanics inside the focuser guarantee zero flex in any point during a full circle rotation.

Rated load

Falcon Rotator has been tested at 6Kg / 13.2lbs of imaging setup.
The 6 stainless steel branded bearings can easily handle higher payloads with zero flexure.

De-Rotation support for Alt/Az mounts

Rotator has the precision to fully support that. We are going to provide the required software for de-rotation calculations very soon. (under heavy testing under the stars)

ASCOM & INDI Support

Rotator is fully ASCOM6 supported. INDI support will follow by the time of the launch

Standalone Software

Control the Falcon Rotator from the supplied standalone Windows software.
