Perfect companion for lunar and planetary photography
I recently purchased a ZWO ASI462MC camera and decided to use it with my new ASTRONOMIK Pro Planet 807 IR pass filter. The 807 filter takes advantage of the 462MC's RGGB sensitivity peaks, allowing it to be used in small diameter telescopes without appreciable loss of brightness and resolution. The transmittance of the 807 filter is just as ASTRONOMIK promises in their brochure. I made tests with an ETX-90 to push the capabilities of the filter in conjunction with the ASI462MC. I made daytime shots to ground targets and was impressed with the efficiency of the IR 807 in attenuating atmospheric effects. In lunar photography (day and night) I was able to obtain images close to the ETX-90's diffraction limit in a 2/5 seeing using a fixed tripod without sidereal tracking. The ASTRONOMIK 807 IR pass filter is my ASI462's best friend and also my best friend too for planetary photography. In a few days I will test this set with my MEADE 10 "SCT to take them to another level of demand.
