ZWO 2″ IR-cut UV filter is suitable for color camera with AR protect window.
The ZWO IR-Cut Filter blocks infrared light from reaching the sensor of your CCD or CMOS camera or your expensive H-alpha filter. When imaging, the addition of this simple and inexpensive accessory will result in sharper images, and when doing solar work, the IR Cut Filter will your protect H-alpha filter from the damaging effects of infrared radiation.
Infrared or IR light is invisible to the human eye, and so even though most telescopes are not designed to focus IR light, it does not matter when you are using your telescope visually. However, when you add a camera to the mix, its a whole other story! Unlike the human eye, a silicon sensor is very sensitive to light in the infrared portion of the spectrum, and that is a problem because infrared images are blurry as all get out. That means your nice, sharp visual light image is degraded by the addition of the infrared layer. This problem can easily be solved by blocking the infrared, and the ZWO IR-Cut filter will do just that.
The ZWO IR-Cut filter is housed in a 2″ cell. The filter comes with a protective plastic case.

Lucas Di Pentima – :
Hello, will this filter work as a lum filter for the 533MC-Pro? Thanks
sara.liu – :
Yes, it is OK.
Gerrit Barrere – :
I don’t see a pressure ring. There is a retaining ring on the female M48 thread side which holds the filter glass in place, and that is the only ring. Can I remove that, or is it cemented in place?
Moson – :
Yes,that is the pressure ring.And you can remove it.
Gerrit Barrere – :
Can I remove the retaining ring which holds the filter in place, or is it cemented in place? The ring is too thick, so there are no threads exposed to attach to an M48 male accessory.
Moson – :
You don’t have to remove the retaining ring.You can remove the pressure ring,and then the filter can attach an M48.
Kelvin Hennessy – :
Thank you for your response but your haven’t answered my main question – is this filter (IRCUT2) an IR cut or IR-UV cut. The graphs suggest it is IR-UV cut as do the photos of the filter but the descriptions suggest only IR Cut and the reseller photos only show an IR-Cut filter. So what is the 2″ filter part number for IR UV Cut ? The more I look into this the more I am confused as are your resellers who describe your filters as either IR Cut or IR-UV Cut and have a mixture of photos of the two.
ZWO ASI Camera – :
It’s an IR-UV cut
Kelvin Hennessy – :
Is this an IR Cut or IR-UV cut filter ? The picture shows IR-UV cut but the description just IR. And all resellers seem to list this product as IR cut only. Very confusing. I am wondering what filter I would need if I buy an 071MC-Pro. Thanks
ZWO ASI Camera – :
The UV-IR cut filter.
Allen – :
In a previous comment, someone has said you need to find a place to attach filter. What is meant by this? Will it not just screw on any 2″ adapter? I have recently bought 294mc-pro and i need an IR cut filter.
Katherine Tsai – :
We do not have 2 inch filter wheel yet so you need to find another way to fit in the 2 inch filter.
Ed (verified owner) – :
What is the thickness of the glass of this filter?
Katherine Tsai – :
Eduardo – :
Is this filter suitable for the 294MC and and 224MC?
Sean Wang – :
Yes, but need to find somewhere to attach it.
Mark – :
What is the transmission rate of this cutoff filter
Sam Wen – :
It’s the same of 1.25″ IR-CUT filter
we will add it
