ANTLIA IR-Pass 685nm Planetary Imaging Filter - Mounted in 1.25" Filter Cell (31.8mm)

The Antlia IR Pass 685nm filter is an absorption filter that allows infrared light with wavelengths of more than 685nm to pass through. It nicely complements the Antlia 850nm IR-Pass filter. At these longer wavelengths, the sensitivity of the unaided eye is reduced, so it is not suitable for visual observations. The filter is highly recommended for any planetary photography. At long-wavelength spectral range the atmospheric air turbulence (seeing) has much lower impact on the sharpness. The closer to the infrared band, planetary images are less disturbed by wavefront distortions in the atmosphere (seeing), and this results in the sharpest and highest contrast images possible.

By combining a luminance image taken with the IR-Pass filter, along with RGB and U-Venus filters, overall image sharpness is significantly enhanced and details of planets in different bands are taken. This filter makes it also possible to image some planets during daylight due to the dark background sky created by the 685nm IR Pass Filter.
