Orion LRGB Filter Set 1.25-inch
|Orion LRGB filter sets allow you to capture color images using monochrome CCD cameras. |
Serious astrophotographers favor monochromatic CCD cameras for their higher resolution. Color CCD camera may have the same number of raw pixels as their monochromatic counterparts, but they combine individual primary color pixels to create on composite color picture. These LRGB (Luminance, Red, Green, Blue) allow you capture your image in each of the primary colors at the full resolution of the CCD chip. These individual channels are then stacked and balanced durring post processing.
Take your astrophotography to the next level with this set of 1.25" Luminance (IR cutoff), Red, Green, and Blue telescope filters. They're designed for creating high-quality composite color astrophotos with Orion monochrome imaging cameras or similar monochrome cameras. Combining separate images taken through these four filters with a monochrome CCD provides a higher-resolution final image than an image from a comparably sized color CCD. Our LRGB set features dichroic glass filters designed for maximum transmission. The color filters have an IR-blocking coating, and all filters are parfocal to eliminate the need for refocusing between exposure sets. Their anodized aluminum cells thread into the Orion multiple and motorized filter wheels for convenient filter selection. Foam-lined telescope filter case included.
