Nice filter. Fits a standard 1.25” eyepiece and also my Dwarf 2 Smart telescope.

Works like a charm always great service

This wonderful 2" filter by ZWO changed my captures of nebula from being hit and miss to full coverage and is an excellent light pollution block passing only in limited wavelengths. If you want to bypass the effort of difficult processing, or faint nebula but want to use your existing OSC this is the filter for you. straight of the first frame I had the Cygnus wall in view with excellent post processing made easy with dark frames leaving me a wonderful capture for a first attempt.


ZWO Duo Band Filters are dual narrowband filters primarily aimed at complementing the range of one-shot colour cameras including ZWO's ASI cameras. They're perfect for the astronomer who may already own a One Shot Colour (OSC) camera and wants to image using narrowband techniques on emission objects without purchasing a mono camera, filter wheel and narrowband filter set.

The dual band-pass nature of the Duo Band filter passes light at Hα (656 nm) and OIII (500 nm) wavelengths, and can greatly reduce the interference from natural light sources such as moonlight or artificial light pollution such as street lighting.

Contrast and visibility of deep sky objects such as emission nebulae is improved.

If you're looking for an economical solution to deep sky photography in light polluted areas ($139 for 1.25" and $249 for 2"), the ZWO Duo Band Filters are a great choice.

The 1.85 mm Duo-Band filter can be used with most cameras and filter wheels, including ASI cameras and EFW Electronic Filter Wheels, and comes in 1.25" and 2" sizes.

Note on Wide Angle Applications

The incoming light transmitted through the filter should be perpendicular to the filter, or the incident angle should be less than 8°. Therefore, this product is not suitable for wide-angle or ultra wide-angle lenses.
