    I am trouble-shooting an issue where I cannot get enough light on my OAG. I was looking at the filter wheel to see if perhaps I attached it incorrectly to the spacer for the STXL-16200.

    To my surprise, the label on the filter wheel says FW8-STXL SN XS14020025. This was sold as a FW8G. Can you explain what is going on here?

    thanks,
    Cliff

    Cliff,
    The serial number shows it was shipped to OPT as an FW8G-STXL.
    Feel free to call me if you need support.

    The old company wouldn't include the "G" or "S" because the only difference is the guided/unguided cover. They would swap covers as needed when shipping. If you have the guider, it's a "G".

    We include the full part number and simply stock both versions.

    Well, it certainly does have the guider so it seems it is just a labeling thing. I'm still trying to work through the low intensity of the image, but I can create a new post if I need help with that.

    Thanks for the clarification,
    Cliff
