A quote was obtained for a standard V filter of a size required to fit in FRAME and give a full field of view. The price was $ 6950 ($\sim$5560 euro) with a delivery time of 12 weeks. We are also requesting quotes for an H$\alpha$ filter and a Sloan u' filter which are expected to be the most expensive.

The price for the V filter indicates that the total price for a set of UBVRIz' filters will be well over 30000 euro, with that for a set of Sloan u'g'r'i'z'H$\alpha$ filters expected to be significantly more.
