Imagine you have a camera mounted on your telescope and have to switch between
different filters as quickly as possible. This is only possible using a filter
wheel. The handy rotary wheel offers you incredibly fast switching between up
to 9 different filters. Each filter position is designated by a number, so you
know which filter is currently in the beam path. Filter Installation Use the
supplied hex key to unthread the four socket head screws of the back panel of
the filter wheel assembly. Be sure to place the screws in a safe place so they
do not become lost. Once four screws have been removed, gently separate the
back plate from the filter wheel. Install the 1.25" filters of your choice
into the tray simply by threading them into the filter tray. You may wish to
note the number designation of each installed filter for convenient reference
during use. You may find it useful to leave one of the nine threaded filter
locations empty, providing an unfiltered option for viewing or imaging. Once
you have installed all the filters you wish to use, carefully place the filter
tray back into the wheel assembly. Be sure the small plastic tab fully
registers with the central hole of the wheel assembly so that it “clicks” into
place. Position the rear plate so that the opening is aligned with the opening
of the front plate. Complete installation by reattaching the rear plate of the
filter wheel assembly with the socket head screws. If you are installing an
individual filter or swapping one filter for another, you can avoid partial
disassembly of the filter wheel. To install an individual filter, unthread the
1.25" nosepiece from the assembly to expose the internal filter tray. Rotate
the tray so the desired filter location is shown. Install the 1.25" filter by
placing it on the filter tray and rotating it clockwise with your fingertips.
Astromania 1.25" filters feature a knurled rim which will prove helpful for
this type of installation. Be careful not to touch the actual filter surface.
Note: individual filter installation without disassembly may not be convenient
for all users, especially those with large fingers! Read more Filter Wheel
Configurations Attaching an Eyepiece: For visual use, you will need to attach
the 1.25" eyepiece adapter (Not Include) to the Multiple Filter Wheel. To do
this, thread the 1.25" adapter onto the back plate of the wheel assembly. Once
the adapter is completely attached, unscrew the knurled thumbscrew until it is
flush with the inside surface of the adapter and insert a 1.25" eyepiece.
Secure the eyepiece by tightening the thumbscrew. Attaching a digital imager:
If you are using a digital imager that features T-threads, you can attach it
directly to the Multiple Filter Wheel. If your digital imager has a 1.25"
nosepiece, remove it to expose the T-threads. Now simply thread the imager
onto the camera adapter, and then thread the adapter onto the rear plate of
the filter wheel assembly. You can lock your camera or digital imager in a
preferred position by using the camera adapter's locking ring. Once you have
positioned your camera or imager, rotate the knurled locking ring counter
clockwise until it locks the camera or imager into place. Attaching a Camera:
The Multiple Filter Wheel can be extremely useful for astro-imaging with a
camera body, be it a SLR camera, CCD, or CMOS device. To attach a SLR camera
to the filter wheel, use the included camera adapter and an optional T-ring
for your SLR model. Attach the side of the camera adapter without the knurled
lock ring to the rear plate of the wheel assembly by rotating it clockwise
until tight. Now thread your SLR camera T-ring onto the exposed T threads.
Note: The filter wheel arrives with the camera adapter preinstalled. Read more
Parts List and Care/Storage: Feel free to leave your 1.25" filters installed
in the wheel during storage. To avoid excessive dust buildup, be sure to
attach the dustcaps prior to storing, and use a foam-lined accessory case. The
foam-lined box your Multiple Filter Wheel arrives in also acts as a convenient
storage container. Simply unthread the 1.25" nosepiece from the filter wheel
and place the wheel and nosepiece in the diecut foam. If you have the 1.25"
eyepiece adapter (Not Include) installed, unthread it and replace with the
T-thread ring. Now you can safely store your filter wheel without worrying
about dust build-up on your filters. - Filter Wheel - 1.25" Nosepiece -
