Whether for "do-it-yourself" applications or professional camera rigs – the versatile drylin® linear guide system offers extensive freedom when it comes to their design. Specifically in the construction of camera carriages, also referred to as sliders or dollies, technicians, product designers or DIY enthusiasts can make their wishes come true and combine individual components. The total absence of lubrication and the very low noise level due to the use of tribo-optimised polymers and aluminium are only two of many arguments that speak in favour of igus®. In addition, energy chains and chainflex® cables ensure increased dependability even where high speeds and tight bend radii are involved.

We present the slowest igus application. To photograph celestial bodies at night, cameras must not only be equipped with high-quality telescopes, but also use long exposure to counteract the darkness. The problem with long exposure is the sensitivity of the photos to motion, and since the earth rotates on its own axis, changing the sky is inevitable. You will find out in the application report how this compensation takes place and how our tribo-filaments were able to increase the precision of astrophotography.
e-chains from igus carry numerous power and data cables in this breathtaking spotlight installation.
