Apologies that there was still an outdated image on this product page. The second image shows the current scope of supply: there are pre-punched compartments for up to 8 eyepieces, but all in the same size and not tailored to individual eyepiece sizes.

I have never used a Herschel Wedge before on my refractor--always mylar film, or glass filters on the forward end of the scope.
Will the unfiltered solar energy entering my(very expensive) air spaced triplet objective possibly damage the lens due to over heating? Could I use the wedge/and refractor continuously for 2 or 3 hours with out worry of damage to either? Thank you. Jon Mayer
When you have a good refractor, all the light and also the the heat passes through the lenses and end up in the Herschel wedge. There the heat will be dissipated and the lens will be only a few degrees warmer but not really hot. So there is no danger for damage of the lens. We checked the Herschel wedge in summertime on an 8" Zeiss Refractor -.a whole day - and it survived very well.

We do not know the threads of all telescopes, and these may even change when a telescope is produced for some time. And SkyWatcher uses several threads on their telescopes. So, unfortunately, we'd have to ask you to measure the thread of your telescope. That's the best way to see if it fits.
We have a description of how to measure the thread of your telescope here: https://www.baader-planetarium.com/en/blog/clicklock-clamp-for-your-telescope/
If it doesn't fit, you can also send us the data through this website.
