Product Description & Reviews
Use this handy 2 inch filter slider to quickly switch between up to six 2 inch eyepiece filters to enhance and improve your views. With this slider, you'll be able to use multiple filters without the hassle of repeatedly removing and replacing an eyepiece to switch individual filters. As its name implies, the Orion 6-Slot 2 inch Filter Slider filter slider holds up to six different 2 inch filters at once. When you want to change filters, simply push the slider gently until the desired filter clicks into place under the inserted 2 inch eyepiece. Tension of the slider mechanism can be adjusted according to your preference using an included 2.5mm hex key. With ample spaces for big 2 inch filters, the 6-Slot Filter Slider makes it easy to quickly compare differently filtered views, or you can leave a slot open for an unfiltered comparison. Thanks to six included step-down 1.25 inch adapters, you can also use 1.25 inch filters with the slider. In addition to visual benefits, specialized imaging filters can be installed in the slider to accentuate specific features in astrophotos. The Orion 6-Slot 2 inch Filter Slider also makes it easier to compare filtered views at different magnifications, since you can swap out the inserted 2 inch eyepiece without having to remove any filters from the slider. The Filter Slider's 2 inch eyepiece holder features a non-marring brass compression ring to keep the inserted eyepiece, or imaging camera nosepiece, securely in-place without scratching the barrel. This convenient slider holds installed filters in the same orientation that an eyepiece would, which helps reduce unwanted reflections for optimum performance. To reach focus when using the 6-Slot 2 inch Filter Slider, approximately 24mm of inward focus travel is required.
