£199.00

Quick Overview

The Orion 2" Multiple 4-Filter Wheel is a rotatable 2-inch filter holder for those deploying telescopes with 2-inch-fitting focusers, who wish to make full use of large format sensor illumination for tri-colour imaging - or alternatively for those have 2" eyepieces for visual observations. Holding up to four filters, this is a reasonably-priced, non-motorised alternative to the more expensive Nautilus focus wheels from Orion.

The Orion 2" Multiple 4-Filter Wheel is a rotatable 2-inch filter holder for those deploying telescopes with 2-inch-fitting focusers, who wish to make full use of large format sensor illumination for tri-colour imaging - or alternatively those have 2" eyepieces for visual observations. Holding up to four filters, this is a reasonably-priced, non-motorised alternative to the more expensive Nautilus focus wheels from Orion.

When it comes to field illumination for astrophotography, bigger definitely is better! Enter Orion’s new 2" Multiple 4-Filter Wheel, which allows convenient switching of up to four 2" filters for astrophotography. Since many of today’s larger format monochrome Charge Coupled Device (CCD) imagers require 2" telescope filters for larger field illumination, this affordable solution provides fast and easy transition between multiple filters.

The Orion 2" Multiple Filter Wheel can be easily attached to a 2" telescope focuser using the included 2" thread-on nosepiece, which provides maximum field illumination to the imaging camera. A removable T-thread ring on the camera side allows for direct threaded attachment of the filter wheel to astrophotography cameras. Compatible with all 2" Orion imaging filters, the 2" multiple filter wheel is not equipped or recommended for visual use.

This accessory is a must-have for monochrome astrophotographers, who need to take separate exposures through LRGB, or H-alpha, S-II and O-III tri-color imaging filters to obtain a colour composite. Light finger pressure is all you need to rotate the wheel until the selected filter clicks into place.

The Orion 2" Multiple 4-Filter Wheel also provides a convenient and secure way to store your astrophotography filters and help protect them from dust and dew. Filters can be easily installed or changed by removing the cover with the included hex key.

Requires 22mm additional focus travel.

Weighs just 14oz.

Anodized aluminum filter wheel conveniently allows switching of up to four 2" astrophotogrpahy and/or eyepiece filters
