Product Description

This four-piece Celestron LRGB filter set #95517 lets you take sharp true-color images of the night sky with your Skyris monochrome CCD camera and the Skyris filter wheel. 

The LRGB filters (Luminance, Red, Green, and Blue) filters of the Celestron filter set were designed in Celestron's facility in California. They are made from quality optical glass. Each is layered with different dichroic coatings - thin-film interference coatings that selectively and very accurately pass light only from a small range of colors while reflecting all other colors. These coatings produce a spectrum bandpass with the optimum color balance and light throughput needed for sharp CCD images. 

In addition, multiple anti-reflection coating layers on each filter insure high light transmission and protect against the rigors of daily use  Each filter is mounted in a standard 1.25" filter cell and has a clear aperture of 26mm. 

As you can see from the transmission spectra in the feature image above, the filters transmit an average of more than 92% of the light across the entire visual spectrum from 420nm to 680nm. At the same time, they block more than 99% of the infrared (IR) transmissions in the 730nm to 920nm range. Unwanted IR transmission can cause bloated and unrealistic stars in deep space images and slightly out-of-focus planetary images if not blocked. As you can see, the Celestron LRGB filters are very effective at blocking the unwanted IR.

The Celestron LRGB filters are compatible with Celestron Skyris cameras, cameras from The Imaging Source, and the filter wheels of a wide variety of other brands of monochrome CCD cameras and filter wheels that accept standard 1.25" filters.
