And yes, using the filter ring on the quick connector is hugely better than hand holding the filter or threading it on and off.

 

I am looking for used clip on connectors so I can mount some different filters on them so I can swap them more easily, but I have not found anyone with a surplus of just the connectors.

 

If anyone knows of a source of just the connectors, please let me know!

With the Binocular, I will need at least two, and I would love to have more than that.

In fact, if you may want to order more than one.  Raf says he will give a discount on multiples.

Anyway, if you can turn up a couple of extra clip on connetors, you could have different filters mounted on different ones.  I often go from 610nm to H-a or to unfiltered, and having another connector or two would make it quicker.
