Designed and engineered specifically for use with monochrome imaging cameras, the Meade Instruments RGB/IR Imaging Filter Set gives you three 1.25" filters: one in each of the three primary colors, plus an infrared (IR) blocking filter. This filter set enables tri-color imaging using the individual red, green, and blue filters; and the three resulting images, when stacked via image processing software, form a color image of your subject. The IR filter prevents infrared light from reaching the camera's sensor resulting in clearer and sharper images.

Each filter is parfocal with each other, eliminating the need to adjust the focus after switching colors, and can fit on most standard 1.25" eyepiece cameras, or filter wheels or bars to facilitate quick changes. The rings are aluminum with a matte-black anodized finish, and the filter lenses are made of 3mm-thick optical glass with high-transmission broad-band multi-coatings.

Red Filter
  • Blocks the transmission of blue and green wavelengths
  • Produces sharply defined contrast between the cloud formations and the lighter toned surface features on Jupiter
  • Increases definition of the Martian polar ice caps and maria
  • Reduces the light glare when viewing Venus
Green Filter
  • Reduces glare while transmitting light uniformly across the entire visible spectrum
  • Helps to split double stars, especially when one member of the pair is significantly brighter than the other
Blue Filter
  • Popular for the study of detail on Jupiter and Saturn
  • Enhances the contrast of rills and festoons in Jupiter's cloud belts, and details of the Great Red Spot
  • Brings out detail in Saturn's belts and polar features
  • Useful for lunar observing
IR Blocking Filter
  • Blocks infrared light from reaching sensitive imaging sensor, without modifying the visual part of the spectrum
  • Increases contrast and overall image sharpness
  • Eliminates bright halos around objects
