Product Info

Manufacturer Description

Color CCD cameras such as the Skyris color planetary cameras are very sensitive across the visual spectrum, as well as in infrared. Some telescopes may correct for chromatic aberration, but are not designed to correct for IR light, which can often look defocused in astroimages. Blocking infrared (IR) light provides the greatest color balance and sharpness in your astroimages. This filter blocks IR while passing more than 94% of the entire visual spectrum, maintaining color fidelity.

Specifications:

  • Optical Coatings: Anti-reflection multi-coatings and dichroic IR-block coating
  • Camera Adaptable: Standard C-thread
  • Clear Aperture: 19.5mm (0.77 in)
  • Also features a standard 1.25" female thread (M28.5x0.6) for attachment of additional astronomy filters

Product carries full 2 year Celestron factory limited warranty (within US/Canada only).

Manufacturer part number: 95516

      5.0 Celestron C-mount filter

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      Due to its short length this is a unique and useful accessory to any C-mount camera, like the Lodestar or most security video cameras (incl. Mallincam, AVS). It adds 5mm to the optical path. Hence it can also be used as a CS-to-C-mount adapter.

      Bottom Line: Would you recommend this item? Yes
      Was this review helpful? Yes / No
