It was mounted just in front of a Powermate in my 150mm refractor. As I said above it was a cold winter day so it doesn't seem unlikely that it broke by a thermal shock.

The filter I am now using is this https://www.baader-planetarium.com/en/b ... ilter.html however for some unknown reason it is not compatible with my Quark in its original configuration, I had to remove the telecentric for making use of it. Same with my front Baader DERF.
