Practical advices from Teleskop Service:
- Especially with adaptions for astrophotography, it depends on a fraction of a millimetre. With our T2 tuning rings and extension tubes, you can adapt the filter changer exactly to your "image train".
- We recommend one drawer for each filter. Interchanging of filters during by screwing while photographing or observing is rather unfunctional.
- Optimal storage is provided by the protective case FIPA92. With this, the filters are always readily available and are carefully stored.
