Model: birpass-1Part Number: 2458385
The Baader IR-Pass filter blocks wavelengths below 685 nm. At these longer wavelengths, planetary images are less disturbed by wavefront distortions in the atmosphere (seeing). By combining a luminance image taken with the IR-Pass filter, along with RGB frames, overall image sharpness is significantly enhanced. Some of the world's best amateur planetary images have been taken with this technique.
only had the opportunuty to quickly try this visually on the moon. It shows a rather lovely deep red. Comparing to no filter I can see a huge difference in atmospheric wobbling - its virtually eliminated so have high hopes when I get the chance to image with it.
