Discount Pricing: In order to take advantage of the discounted pricing advertised on OPT's website, Apogee requires payment in full at the time of order. This pre-payment is required regardless of whether the camera is readily available or there is a lead-time, since OPT is required to pay the full amount due when we place your order.

If you'd like to order this camera without prepaying, that's not a problem, but the price will be a bit higher. To find out what the price would be, you can call OPT at 1-800-483-6287 or email our internet sales department, and we will provide pricing and lead times, if any.

Product Questions

Hi Guys,
Does this FW support 2" SCREW-IN filters?
Can it support a 2" nose piece and a QHY9 camera on the back?

If this filter wheel also supports the 50mm square filter wheel carousel, do you have this alternate carousel in stock and if so, what is the price?
