NARIT is developing the Thai Southern Hemisphere Telescope (TST), at the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory (CTIO). The 0.7-meter telescope, operated in collaboration with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The location, in the Coquimbo region of the Republic of Chile, provides some of the world's best conditions for astronomical observation. The region's high desert climate provides stable, dry air that results in consistently excellent seeing and visibility.

CENTERLINE COLOR 20 POSITION COLOR FILTER WHEELM
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.
