TS-Optics filter box with T2 connection for astrophotography and observation
Change filters in seconds without having to remove or rotate the camera. Weighing just 100 grams and with a diameter of 80 millimeters, this filter drawer is more compact and lighter than any filter wheel. The filter drawer is an exciting alternative, any combination of filters is possible, even a combination of 1.25" and 2" filters. This makes the TSFSLT2 filter drawer one of the most versatile filter change accessories on the market.
Summary of the advantages of the TSFSLT2 filter box:
♦ Thanks to a reinforced casing and longer T2 internal and external threads, the drawer is also suitable for heavy cameras.
♦ At only 100 grams and with a diameter of 85mm, the focuser is hardly loaded, so it is also possible to change the filter for smaller telescopes.
♦ You can use any filter and combination of filters and even switch between 1.25" and 2" mounted filters. You will find the suitable inserts in the recommended accessories.
♦ Due to the total length of only 18 mm, the drawer can be easily combined with most cameras and correctors.
Fields of application of the TS-Optics filter box:
♦ Deep sky astrophotography: L-RGB recordings, false color recordings, contrast enhancement with nebula filters with mono or color astro cameras and DSLRs
♦ Planetary Observing and Planetary Recordings – Quickly change color filters to improve contrast. In photography, the recordings can then be easily combined.
♦ Deep sky observation: Prints without filter, UHC filter, O-III filter and other filters can be directly compared with each other. This way you will always get the maximum amount of detail from the object of observation!

Teleskop-Service practical tips:
♦ Especially with adaptations for astrophotography, it is often reduced to a fraction of a millimeter. With our T2 tuning rings and extension rings, you can tailor the filter drawer exactly to your "image train".
♦ We recommend one drawer per filter. Unscrewing the filters during photography or observation is quite impractical.
