The Borg filter unit allows filter swapping by pushing out the
filterholder/filter with a photographic remote shutter release
cable - vibration free swaps. Imager kept in dessicant dry Pelican

rigid, and has outstanding performance. The large filter capability of
the Borg unit guarantees no vignetting.
