Abstract
Some components of the photometric equipment, designed and made to use in high speed multichannel stellar photometry for the whole earth telescope (WET) and other astronomical programs, are described. Despite this special purpose, the described equipment could also be used for any kind of stellar photometry, especially for observations of variable stars. Small size and weight of the equipment make it suitable for observations in expeditionary conditions. An original solution of the step-motor feeding for the filter wheel rotation is presented, and the filter setting system FD 306 based on it is described and discussed.
