More product information
To take a color image with a monochrome CCD camera requires taking multiple images through individual color filters, then combining the images to create a single tri-color image. This is typically done through LRGB (luminance, red, green, and blue) filters. Some of the more striking color images however, such as the Hubble Space Telescope's well-known "Pillars of Creation" image, are made instead through the "Hubble Palette" of H-alpha, Oxygen III, and Sulfur II filters.

The 5-position Skyris manual 1.25" filter wheel is the perfect complement to the Skyris 618M, 445M, and 274M monochrome CCD cameras. The Skyris filter wheel attaches to the front of your Skyris monochrome CCD camera, making it easy to toggle between filters while imaging, without moving your camera or telescope. While the wheel threads directly to your Skyris camera body, it is also compatible with a variety of other imaging cameras, thanks to its included T-thread and C-thread adapters. 

The Skyris filter wheel accepts most standard 1.25" format filters (filters are not included with the filter wheel). Simply load up to five of your optional filters into the filter wheel and turn the filter dial to switch between your available filters. Click-stops assure that the filters will be precisely positioned in front of your camera's imaging chip and will not accidentally shift out of position. If you need to swap out a filter, open the quick-release door to the internal carousel, replace the filter, and get back to imaging in no time. 

The Skyris filter wheel is complete with a 1.25" nosepiece for connection to your telescope, a camera C-thread adapter (for connecting to Skyris cameras), a camera T-thread adapter (for connecting to other camera brands), a C-thread rotation lock ring, and a T-thread rotation lock ring. The light-weight (11 oz) Skyris filter wheel is made of sturdy, machined aluminum and high-quality components, including spring-loaded steel ball bearings. It is built to give you years of trouble-free imaging.
