    Default Just ordered my Quark Daystar Chromosphere



    I order my daystar last night and forgot about the UV/IR cut filter. I do have a 2" Baader Moon and Skyglow which is UV/IR cut can anyone see an issue using this filter in place of just a normal UV/IR filter?
    Thanks for the info

    The Baader website states that the BM&S is blocked for IR/UV so should be alright.

    Excellent article on the Daystar site. It's under "Applications" and then "erf"
    The article is titled "ENERGY REJECTION FILTERS FOR QUARK"
    I would check with Jen at Daystar though, just to make sure you are doing it right!
