The ZTA™ is an FLI adapter design that eliminates the common deficiencies found in most astronomical adapters. When you use the ZTA™ you will never experience tilted components, marred adapters, or wobbly interfaces!
The ZTA™ adapter system employs a circular spring that evenly distributes the pressure of three set screws against the ZTA™ dovetailed surface. The resulting clamping force between the two machined surfaces results in zero tilt, zero adapter marring and a complete elimination of problems associated with loose connections. The ZTA™ adapter can be machined to fit nearly any type of camera, color filter wheel or telescope.
ZTA™ - featured in the Atlas focuser and the CenterLine color filter wheel.
FLI's exclusive multi step Filter Retainer allows the use of ALL square filter thicknesses on the CFW-5-7 and CFW-3-20 Color Filter Wheels.
Color Filter Wheels
Our color filter wheel’s robust mechanical design provides the basis for stunning, uncompromising images. Each FLI color filter wheel is precision engineered with a highly accurate no-slip drive chain and stepper motor. The large diameter pivot pin and bushings are precision ground and matched for smooth, quiet no-fuss operation night after night. FLI color filter wheels do not use internal lights for homing, so your images are protected from stray light interference.
