The Venus-U filter makes it possible to obtain photographs, CCD or video images in the UV-A (320-400nm) and observe Venus' cloud structures.

Main Use and Performance

For use with monochrome CCD cameras. You will need to remove the cover glass of the sensor and internal UV-IR blocker in order to pass UV light. The same holds true for mono DSLRs that have built-in low pass filters, these needs to be removed. For DSLRs you will need a special UV lens together with camera body. The sensor of CCD or CMOS cameras are capable of detecting light in the 350-1100 nm range.
