Monochrome CCD cameras require the use of multiple filters to achieve a color image. A filter wheel makes it easy to toggle between filters while imaging, without moving your camera or telescope. Simply turn the dial to scroll through your available filters. If you need to swap out a filter, just open the quick-release door to the internal carousel, replace the filter, and get back to imaging in no time. The filter wheel's sturdy, machined aluminum construction and high-quality components, including spring-loaded steel ball bearings, will give you years of enjoyment.
Celestron has designed this 5-position filter as the perfect complement to their Skyris monochrome CCD cameras. The wheel threads directly to your Skyris camera body. However, it's also compatible with a variety of other imaging cameras thanks to the included T-thread and C-thread adapters. Accepts most standard 1.25" format filters. Filters not included.

nicer than i thoughtPros: Cons: Comments:
I paid a little more for this so I wouldn't get a cheap piece of plastic, this is sturdy and allows great access with the filter door. When turning the wheel each filter clicks in place, I am glad I spent a little more for a quality filter wheel. =D

Great ToolPros: Cons: Comments:
This very nicely made filter wheel will be coupled to a Skyris 236M imager. I have not used it yet but have installed the LRGB filters. The holdup is building a light shield to house the computer in for solar photos. The scope is a PST Double Stack giving magnificent views. Our sun is putting on quite a show.
