Energy Rejection Filters

Energy Rejection Filters reduce the heat load on your filter assembly by absorbing or reflecting UV and/or I light and transmitting light in the desired visual spectrum. These filters are sometimes Red or Yellow glass, or dielectric IR and UV, but pass light in the desired visual spectrum.  The ERF can also serve as an aperture mask to accomplish a straight angle of incidence for light entering the filter.

DayStar filter assemblies operate best at f/30 and slower. Creating f/30 configuration can be done easily with the proper ERF and/or barlow as listed below. If you don't see your telescope, visit our full list of reflectors or refractors or contact us for your exact model. Higher resolution, larger aperture configurations use a barlow.

In order to compute the proper aperture reduction mask, divide your telescope EFL or Focal Length by 30.  To compute the proper aperture using a barlow, use the adjusted EFL which includes multiplication by your barlow.  See formula below for details.
