The Filter Wheel attached to the Off Axis Guider.
Using Filters
The filter-wheel accepts standard 1.25" threaded filters. To fit the filters remove any adapters on the back of the filter-wheel (non-branded side) to screw-fit the filters directly and without opening the fitter-wheel. Otherwise you would need to remove the back-plate by unscrewing and removing the two small screws near the edge of the case.

The diagram below shows how the bundled adapters can be attached to the filter wheel.
