Is it possible to attach an Optec IFW Filter Wheel, an Optec TCF-S

Focuser, an SBIG AO-7 and an SBIG ST-10XME to the TEC140

FeatherTouch focuser, and reach focus? If so, what are the adapters

that will allow that?

I have a IFW Filter wheel, TCF-S Focuser and a Starlight SXV-9H

Camera attached to my TEC 140. My featherlight focuser is racked out

about 25mm (one inch)with this setup. You should be able to use your

setup without the AO7. You will not have enough backfocus to use the

AO7.



I have a 2" nosepiece on the front of the IFW that fits into the

featherlight focuser. The IFW is coupled directly to the TCF-S withe

the Optec adapter and the 2" nosepiece on the camera slides directly

into the TCF-S. This set up allows me to focuses the camera remotely

without modifications to the featherlight focuser



Good luck
