IR Filter help needed

Recommended Posts

With my recently modded Logitech quickcam pro, i had found the built in IR filter from the automatic focuser, Unfortunatly when removing it it sustained a few tiny scratches and one very big one.

now the big one is located on the far right of the view, and messes up about 1/8th of the image

since i have not yet had clear skies to be able to test to see if it will affect astro imaging i reach out to yall

is this going to be an issue at all?

will zooming in with sharpcap cut out the affected area?

Or do i need to find and inexpensive IR filter and mod it into the camera?

i will atach an image it ook with the irfilter in place with the scratches visable for referance, the image was not zoomed or cropped

and help would be greatly apreciated

thank you

      The weather has been so bad I have had the time to finish a video on using astro filters with the Nikon Z bodies and Nikon camera lenses. There is a manual alternative to the FTZ allowing 1.25 inch filters to be fitted between camera and F-mount lenses, and for some lenses and end of lens solution make sense. FAstroTZ is described here:

      Hi there! I’m looking forward towards purchasing a new wide FOV eyepiece from FLO (first light Optics ) and I do to know which one to pick!
      i will be using it on my f/6 8” Skywatcher dob and hoping to get good views of the Orion’s nebula , (large nebulae in general) andromeda and others.
      I ve heard the panaview 32mm is a good choice but I d like to know about the other options as well. I would like the budget to be around 100€
      Clear skies, Kronos.

      Sooo after coming back from holidays(have been gone for a month and a half) i discovered that i had forgotten to use the lens caps to protect my Panaview 32mm from dust....
      turns out, its dirty.Me having no idea what a "multiple element lens eyepiece " meant , learnt the hard way. I unscrewed the bottom part of the eyepiece and 2 lenses and a tiny ring came out... not knowing in how to put them in, tried a bunch of different ways, and still the eyepiece view was still bad.(couldnt even focus on daylight objects) after messing with it for a bit 3-5 more lenses came out. Now my 100$ eyepiece is totally screwed up and i have No idea how to fix it. I m panicking so much and i have absolutely no idea what to do. I hope i ddnt screw the lens up...
        if anyone thinks they can help me, i m gonna make a system in which you can tell me how to put the lenses back
      So lets name the first group of parts depending on their place from left to right : A(The first lens ), B(the ring) and C( The Thrid lens) , now, these i have no idea how to place them correctly (have in mind that A Is curved , if it gives you any information)
      The next 4 pieces you see are D(The thick ring), E(The big lens) F (the other ring) and G(the final lens)
      Here is a picture of each piece from both up side and bottom side
      First will be up and second would be down
      If anyone could give me instructions to as how i can put everything back together , i would be greatful

      Hi,
      I'm working with some recent data of a new(ish) camera, and my Ha data is pretty good, but the oiii has these strange artifacts around the borders.
      If I use any kind of local normalization then it pretty much ruins most of the image, as you can see below..
      First the Ha:

       
      Oiii with local normalization:

       
      oiii local normalization map, see how it fits with the artifacts:

       
      Oiii without any local normalization:

       
      These edge artifacts, could they be related to a bad filter or is it a processing artifact, has anyone seen anything similar?
       
      I am using Astro Pixel Processor for calibration and stacking.. Im kind of stumped on this one, and I am going to yank out the Oiii filter this weekend to have a looksie.

      Hey guys! Its been 8 months since i ve started the hobby of astronomy.I would like to dig deeper now,i am looking for a book in astrophysics that involves mostly formulas and mathematics.With so many books in the market its hard to defferentiate science books from just books with information about the subject 
      Thanks!
