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 Round Gen2 UV/NIR Blocked Luminance Filter

Included with Astrodon's E-Series as well as I-Series Tru-Balance LRGB filter sets, this 49.7 mm Generation 2 Luminance "L" Filter is parfocal with all Astrodon LRGB and Narrowband filters. Blocking both UV and NIR, this colorless filter offers 97% minimum transmission for 400 nm to 700 nm wavelengths. 50% transmission at 395 nm with blocking above 705 nm.
