Optec - Violet rejection filter, 50mm diam x 2mm thick.
Blocks the UV and violet light shorter than 420nm. Most refractor optics including apochromatic telescopes are not well corrected in the short wavelengths. Add to this, the enhanced quantum efficiency of the newer CCDs in this part of the spectrum. Without this filter, the stellar profiles of hot blue stars become bloated and off-axis stars show a small comet like tail due to laterial chromatic aberration.
The Optec IFW Intelligent filter wheel (#17350) is the ideal compliment for holding this filter.
Optec can supply a full range of filters for the IFW wheel. Filters are easily and safely mounted in the new IFW filter wheel by use of delrin plastic holding tabs and spacers. Filters from 1 to 5 mm in thickness can be accommodated with use of delrin ring spacers. Because the flexible tab and not the head of the screw holds the filter in place, it is impossible for the filter to be damaged by excess over tightening. An ample supple of tabs and spacers are supplied with each filter wheel.
Filter wheels for both 50mm diameter and 2-inch diameter are available. For special purposes, an 8 position wheel configured for 1-inch filters is offered.
