About this product

Model:  filter-wheel-20206
Part Number:  20206

This simple manual filter wheel will hold up to five 1.25" filters in threaded, numbered, compartments.

Some consider a filter wheel to be an astro-imaging accessory but filter wheels are used by visual observers too. Consider, you could load a number of visual filters into the wheel then simply dial them into the field of view. It beats manually moving a filter from eyepiece to eyepiece when changing magnification (so less chance of it dropping onto the patio!). You could fit a Moon filter (or two with different densitys) a light-pollution-reduction filter, a UHC, fringe-killer, or whatever other visual filter you find most useful. One compartment can be left empty for unfiltered viewing.

The filter wheel can be attached to your focuser either by the supplied 1.25” nosepiece adaptor or via a T-thread.

The robustly constructed filter wheel is supplied with a 1.25” eyepiece adaptor, 1.25” focuser nosepiece, T-2 camera adaptor and locking ring.

Please note: your focuser will require 20mm of inward focusing distance from the normal focus position to compensate for the thickness of the filter wheel.

Useful but.

bear in mind if your trying to do some narrow band imaging say under full moon conditions the gap on the side where the wheel actuator is lets in stray light. Otherwise this is a useful bit of kit making changing filters easy under normal dark skiy conditions. Keep your head torc h light away from it.

Very good Filter Wheel

I was so impressed with this filter wheel, I am now glad I went for it instead of the Celestron Skyris, Don't get me wrong I'm sure the Celestron is a Great Product, but if your on a budget, this filter wheel will be hard to beat. I was so impressed with it, I wrote an article about it on my website. It can be found here:

I don't know who manufactures this filter wheel, but it's a good'un.
