About Astrodon UV Blocking Filters

Astrodon filters are high performing, durable filters that provide significant aid for astrophotography and research pursuits. Each filter is constructed using a highly innovative process with a single high quality 3 mm thick fused silica substrate and full hard oxide sputtered coatings. Astrodon UV blocking filters come in two different varieties - a Luminance "L" filter that blocks both UV and NIR, and a Clear "C" filter that only blocks UV. The former is identical to the Luminance filter included with the both the E-Series and I-Series Astrodon LRGB filter sets. This filter provides at least 97% transmission between 400 nm and 700 nm, while the Clear filter provides at least 97% transmission up to 1000 nm.

Astrodon 49.7 mm Square UV Blocked Clear Filter

This 49.7 mm square unmounted Clear filter that blocks UV light is often purchased alongside Astrodon photometric filters. Contrary to the Luminance filter, however, this Clear filter does not block NIR light. Parfocal with all other Astrodon filters including LRGB and Narrowband filters, this filter supplies 50% transmission at 395 nm (395 nm cut-on) and over 97% transmission to 1000 nm.
