Astrodon Gen2 E-Series LRGB Tru-Balance Filter Set - 49.7 mm Round Unmounted - LRGB2-E50R


About Astrodon Gen2 LRGB 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. Ideally suited for back-thinned and Sony detectors, Astrodon LRGB filters simplify imaging by requiring only a single exposure time, plus one corresponding dark exposure, rather than one for each color. This saves valuable imaging time and results in improved color separation and "Tru" color balance.

Astrodon 50 mm Round Gen2 E-Series LRGB Filter Set

With Astrodon's E-Series LRGB Gen2 Tru-Balance Filters, expressly designed for cameras incorporating full frame sensors such as the KAF8300, KAF3200, KAF6303, and KAF16803, the flux of red-sensitive full-frame CCD detectors, including compensation for the solar photon flux. The lower red response of Interline detectors influencing the design of the Green and Red filters is resolved. The Luminance and Blue filters in this set are identical to those in Astrodon's I-Series set. This enables equal length exposures through roughly 1:1:1 RGB color combine weights within an estimated 10%. While perfection is not possible, this streamlines imaging by making only one exposure time necessary for all RGB data and thus, only one corresponding dark exposure time, conserving precious imaging time.
