Product Description

ZWO Duo-Band Filter is a dual narrowband filter primarily aimed at complementing our range of colour ASI cameras. The Duo-Band filter is aimed at the astronomer who may already own a One Shot Colour (OSC) camera and wants to image using narrowband techniques or emission objects without purchasing a mono camera, filter wheel and narrowband filter set.

The Duo-Band filter offers an economical entry into the world of narrowband imaging and can also offer a practical solution to imaging in light polluted urban areas.

The dual band pass nature of the Duo-Band filter passes light at Hα (656.3nm) and OIII (500.7nm) wavelength, and can reduce the interference from natural light sources such as moonlight, or artificial light pollution such as street lighting.

It can help improve the contrast and visibility of deep sky objects such as emission nebula using a OSC camera.

If you are looking for a solution to deep sky photography in light pollution area, then ZWO Duo-Band Filter will be a great choice.

The Duo-Band filter can be used with all ASI cameras and EFW Electronic Filter Wheel and comes in 1.25” and 2” sizes.

    Hello: I am interested in a asi1600gt. What filters do you recommend? Are dual band filter 1,25″ compatibles and recommendables? The tube is a TS Optics – Imaging Star 70 mm f/6.78 quadruplet ED in a EQ6 mount. Do you think it is a suitable camera for my team? Thank you.

      For the 1600GT, I think LRGB 1.25 is more suitable. The Duo-Band Filter is for color camera.
      The 1600GT is suitable for your team.

    Hello
    I’m starting to use a DuoBand filter – lent by a friend for testing – with my ASI294 Pro and I have serious problems with my Flats… Searching on the web, I realize that several have the same result. Is it due to the sensor of the 294, the light plate used, or the filter itself… (Optolong L-Enhance) I was thinking of getting your Duoband filter which has very good reviews…to replace the Optolong…Do you have any questions about this? If so, is there a solution? Many thanks for reading. AC

    Hi.

    I have the ASI533 and would like to get the 1.25″ Duo Band filter.

    Question 1: Would this filter work with a Canon lens 70-200 f/4?

    Question 2: Would this filter work with a 17-50 f/2.8 lens?

    Thanks very much.

      If you want to use 1.25″, your telescope should be >F7. And install filter is so easy, you will know when you receive it, there is no such method/steps.
