The Celestron IR Cut-Off Filter designed for the Skyris Colour CCD Camera, blocks infrared light (IR) while passing more than 94% of the entire visual spectrum. This becomes important as the Skyris colour planetary cameras are highly sensitive to infrared light, and as not all telescopes are designed to correct for IR light, the resultant image can often look defocused. By blocking infrared (IR) light the greatest colour balance and sharpness is maintained as well as colour fidelity.
