TS Optics manual filter wheel for 5x 2" filters
With this high-quality filter wheel, you can use up to five filters and switch between them within seconds. The filters are always ready for use and also protected from dust and dew. Furthermore, the filter wheel is also light-tight, so there are no reflexes or stray light.
The filter wheel is optimally suitable for L-RGB astrophotography with mono CCD cameras, but also for colour cameras like (D)SLR or colour CCD cameras. The camera is attached to the filter wheel simply via the M48 thread. You can even set the camera position via a locking ring. Even heavy cameras are easily held, due to the solid aluminium body. No tilting occurs. Use the filter wheel with L-RGB filters or with nebula filters for increasing contrast.
An attractive application for the filter wheel is visual observation. Load the filter wheel with various nebula filters like UHC or O[III] and observe diffuse or planetary nebulae in different wavelengths. Switch from one filter to another within seconds. Thanks to the 2" connectors at the telescope and eyepiece side, mounting the filter wheel is very simple.
Thanks to the non-slipping knurled ring, you can switch between the filters even when wearing gloves. The position snaps precisely into place. Each filter position is marked with a number, so you always know which filter is placed in the beam path.
Versatile connections to telescope and eyepiece
The filter wheel supplies push and thread connection at telescope and eyepiece side. Particularly astrophotographer will prefer the stable threaded connection via the M48x0.75 (2") filter thread. There is a lot of adapters for this popular thread. Observers will rather prefer the 2" receptacle. At the telescope side, you have a 2" barrel adapter. Simply put the filter wheel into the focuser by using this. At the eyepiece side, you can screw a 2" eyepiece adapter on the M48 thread, thus you can use 2" and 1.25" eyepieces.
Open the filter wheel by using the supplied hex key on the four screws at the back side of the filter wheel.
Remove the back panel and screw the filters into the wanted positions.
Place the back panel into the right position again and lock it with the four screws.
