The Astrodevice Filter Box is a storage container for storing filter sliders with screw-in filters.
As the Astrodevice team notes, “If you have one of Astrodevice’s filter drawers, you surely know that filters feel best when they are screwed into the magnetic sliders. Then you can easily reach for them and put them in the drawer whenever you need to. You don’t screw them in in the dark, but simply have a pre-prepared set of filters in the sliders. To make it even more convenient for drawer users, we created The Box – a fantastic storage container for storing sliders with screw-in filters. But it’s not just a box. It’s a well-thought-out design full of amenities for maximum convenience of use.”
The Astrodevice Filter Box contains five compartments into which filter sliders can be inserted. The bottom is lined with soft foam to absorb shocks which is especially useful in the dark, when it’s hard to be very precise. Simply slide the slider into the compartment and it will take care of itself, making it soft, comfortable and landing without any shocks.
On each side of Astrodevice Filter Box there are also separate compartments. In one compartment is storage for the magnetic key to provide easy access and the comfort of knowing exactly where to find the key and not chancing misplacing it.
There is also a second, slightly narrower compartment. This is another space for a slider. As the Astrodevice team notes, “It is designed to provide an uncovered space where you can place the filter you’re just about to replace. During an imaging session, when it comes to changing a filter, the last thing you want to do is not only screw in new filters, but also open the box and look for the right one. When the time comes, you just want to reload. That’s why you can put another slider in this special pocket to quickly reach for it at the right time.”
The lid not only protects the glass from outside dust and insects, but also allows the ability to easily identify the filters. This is because there are special indentations in the top where you can mount engraved plaques with appropriate signatures. In total, there are 15 plaques in the set, from which you can arrange almost any collection. What’s more, if you need an inscription that isn’t included in the set, you can simply custom order it.
The box is made of carbon fiber doped plastic, engraved acrylic, flexible additives and metal fasteners. The whole thing is produced in one-off pieces and hand-assembled for the best quality.
