ZWO 2″ IR-cut filter is suitable for colour camera with AR protect window.

The ZWO IR-Cut Filter blocks infrared light from reaching the sensor of your CCD or CMOS camera or your expensive H-alpha filter. When imaging, the addition of this simple and inexpensive accessory will result in sharper images, and when doing solar work, the IR Cut Filter will your protect H-alpha filter from the negative effects of infrared radiation.

Infrared or IR light is invisible to the human eye, and so even though most telescopes are not designed to focus IR light, it does not matter when you are using your telescope visually. However, when you add a camera to the mix, it's a different story! Unlike the human eye, a silicon sensor is very sensitive to light in the infrared portion of the spectrum, and that is a problem because infrared images are not brought to the same common focus point as the visual spectrum. That means your nice, sharp visual light image is degraded somewhat by the addition of the infrared spectrum, softening images somewhat in cameras with high IR sensitivity. This problem can easily be solved by blocking the infrared, and the ZWO IR-Cut filter will do just that.

The ZWO IR-Cut filter is housed in a 2″ cell, and has internal threads so that you can stack filters together. The filter comes with a protective plastic case.
