TS-Optics filter box for astrophotography
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 interesting alternative to any combination of filters. Even the combination of 1.25" and 2" filters is possible. This makes the TS filter drawer one of the most versatile filter changing accessories on the market.
The TSFSLM48-T2 is also a transition adapter
Many cameras have a T2 thread as the connection, but most correctors have an M48 thread. At the same time, this filter drawer creates the transition, saving you an additional adapter and thus a valuable optical path.
The advantages of the TSFSL filter drawers at a glance:
♦ Due to a reinforced casing and longer 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 17 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 imaging, false color imaging, contrast enhancement through nebula filters with monochrome or color astronomical 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 M48 tuning rings and extension rings, you can adapt the filter box exactly to your "Image Train".
♦ We recommend one slot per filter. Unscrewing the filters during photography or observation is quite impractical.
♦ FIPA92 protective container offers optimal storage, so filters are always close at hand and stored carefully.
