Spectral Transmission

Spectral Transmission Chart
Yellow line is published transmission. Color fill is my independent verification with the filter I tested. Note: I used a Quartz Tungsten-Halogen bulb which is broad spectrum, but does not have good throughput in the blues hence I only vouch for the accuracy of my independent verification from 500-900nm.

  • Filter mount thickness: above threads: 5.91mm; including threads: 7.87mm
  • 48mm threads

    I have now spent over $450 on the Baader, having purchased it 3 times. That’s how good it is. The first one took a tumble onto concrete with an Altair Hyperstar. The second one got so lodged into a DSLR WO Redcat adapter that I finally had to sacrifice it. I’m hoping 3 is a charm. Excellent filter!
