About this product
Part Number: Z210-IRCUT2
ZWO 2" IR UV CUT filter is suitable for color cameras with an AR protect window.
The ZWO IR-Cut Filter blocks infrared light from reaching the sensor of your CCD or CMOS camera or your expensive H-alpha filter. When imaging, the addition of this simple and inexpensive accessory will result in sharper images, and when doing solar work, the IR Cut Filter will protect your H-alpha filter from the damaging effects of infrared radiation.
Infrared or IR light is invisible to the human eye, and so even though most telescopes are not designed to focus IR light, it does not matter when you are using your telescope visually. However, when you add a camera to the mix, its a whole other story! Unlike the human eye, a silicon sensor is very sensitive to light in the infrared portion of the spectrum, and that is a problem because infrared images are blurry as all get out. That means your nice, sharp visual light image is degraded by the addition of the infrared layer. This problem can easily be solved by blocking the infrared, and the ZWO IR Cut-Off, will do just that.
The ZWO IR-Cut filter is available in a 1.25” or 2" cell, and has internal threads so that you can stack filters together. The filter comes with a protective plastic case.

Order over Xmas hols and turned up quickly. Using in front of am old Sony A7ii.
As soon as o had the right camera settings and pointed camera in right location, got a nice shot of the Orion Nebula which I didn't even know was in view.
I was.just messing around with the Sony settings and aimed at the belt area and in the lower part of shot appeared this nice pink Nebula. Needless to say I'm happy as all I got before was a load of opaque images with some stars, thanks to the council street lighting.
Definitely recommend the filter.
