Description

Baader Planetarium has introduced the world's finest UV/IR cut filter. This filter is a must for all digital imaging with digital cameras, CCD cameras and modified webcams. It's also useful for protecting valuable H-Alpha filters from heat stress and damaging IR (Daystar, etc). Due to their extremely high optical quality, these filters may be stacked and used far in front of the focal plane (necessary for imaging uses). Like the Baader Planetarium Contrast-Booster, the UV-IR-Cut filter uses the very latest coating technology to deliver the finest filtration quality, and lifetime durability.

Features:

  • Unmatched 98% Average Transmission! Freedom from ghost images (very low reflection multi-coating, Striae-free, and plane-parallel substrate).
  • Extremely Sharp Cutoff at 690nm (leaves all the visible red, including the important 656nm H-alpha emission line).
  • Sharp cutoff below 400nm. Eliminates violet halos around bright stars (more effectively than simpler so-called Minus Violet photographic filters).
  • True optical quality glass substrate and coatings. Why spend all your money on quality primary optic, only to place a lower grade filter optic in the path?
  • Combine with any of the other Baader filters to deliver the sharpest images possible.
    "Got the uv-ir-cut filter. Mounted it internally inside a 400mm lens that I glued to a cheap 3.2 MP camera WORKS GREAT!! Better than the hot mirror supplied with camera more red channel more light - higher shutter speed. At least one extra stop." Luke Gale

            Got this to filter out the IR being caught by my webcam(modded MS Life am). I was skeptical that it would have much effect but after comparing the before and after shots, the difference really is night and day.

                This filter is a must have for anyone planning on taking astrophotos. Threads right on to the 1.25 nosepiece of my ccd imager and does a great job cutting down light pollution. I would totally recommend buying this filter to replace the IR filter that comes with certian monochrome ccd imagers. If I had to I would purchase it again, and at this price you can't go wrong!

                  Purchased to use with my Philips SPC900NC modified webcam, used a cheaper filter first, light transmission is higher with this filter and contrast was increased. Great filter, rated the best by many people including me...
