TS Optics Filter Quick Changer - ideal for quickly changing between filters

Visual and Photographical Use
There are many applications that require you to change between filters regularly. The usual way is to remove the camera or eyepiece from the telescope, unscrew the filter, screw in another filter, put everything back in the telescope and focus again. This procedure is annoyingly bothersome and takes a lot of time!
The TS Optics Filter Quick Changer allows you to switch between filters within a few seconds without having to refocus after the filter change!

Examples of Use:
- Astro Imaging: LRGB colour imaging, narrowband colour imaging, use of different contrast filters and nebula filters

- Planet Observing: Ideal for using colour filters. The quick change between the filters allows you to directly compare the effect of different filters and thus choose the ideal filter for the particular application.

- Deep Sky Observing: You can directly compare the impressions with UHC filters, O-III filters and other filters. This allows you to get the most detail out of each object!

Advantages of the Filter Quick Changer in comparison with other systems:
- there is no limit to the number of different filters you can use.
- very low profile
- this also results in best possible field illumination
- the filter quick changer needs less space than e.g. a filter wheel
- the filters currently not in use can be stored protected from dew and dust. In classical filter drawers the filters are completely unprotected!

TS Filter Quick Changer ... Variations and Combinations

TS Filter Quick Changer + Off Axis Guider ComboTop Recommendation: Combo TS Filter Quick Changer + TS Off Axis Guider

The complete package has an optical length of only 24mm! You can enjoy the advantages of the quick filter change even when using a coma corrector or field flattener. Most conventional solutions would be too long - you would be unable to keep the proper distance between the corrector and the camera sensor!

Hands-on Advice from TS:

The ultra low profile of the TS Filter Quick Changer results in best possible field illumination. Especially on "fast" telescopes, e.g. some Newtonians, the optical length has a big influence on vignetting! The TS Filter Quick Changer even allows you to use 1.25" filters on CCD cameras that would normally require larger filters with other filter holders.

A very common problem: Autoguiding cameras attached to off axis guiders often collide with the filter wheel or other large filter systems. The TS Filter Quick Changer is small enough to avoid this problem!

Hands-on tip by Teleskop Service - Screwing 2" filters into the drawer

As the compact filter drawer is only minimal bigger than the filter itself, it is sometimes difficult to screw the filter in.

How to make it easier:
All you need is a 2" eyepiece, a 2" nosepiece or similar. Place the nosepiece directly above the filter (opposite side of the thread) and fix the filter with tape. Now you can use the 2" nosepiece to screw the filter in and you fingers don't collide with the drawer.

Yours, the TS astro specialists
