ZWO ASI224MC IR Cut Filter


Recommended Posts

I am about ready to purchase this item which is a no brainer but here's my question.
https://agenaastro.com/zwo-1-25-inch-ir-cut-filter.html

Am I ok to buy the filter on its own or do I need the following to go in tandem with it?
https://agenaastro.com/zwo-t2-1-25-filter-adapter-t2-1-25-3.html

I will be using the following in the chain - ASI224, IR Filter, Nose Piece, Extension tube, ADC, Barlow (optional)

What I am trying to figure out is a few things:
1) There is nowhere to attach the filter by itself to the actual sensor area so I *assume* I need the adapter too
2) Assuming I have the adapter + filter in place, I then need to know if I will still have the ability to thread the nose piece in

Once I figure these two items out, all the rest will work itself out down the chain.

The filter screws into the nosepiece.

Consider buying the matching IR pass filter, which will allow you to take infrared images with the camera.  The processed images will be monochrome but often sharper than those taken in colour.
