Hello
I bought the DFK41AF02.AS when I started to dabble in astrophotography. Now having a little more knowledge I realise I should have bought the camera without the IR cut filter. So my question is simple, can I remove the filter?
Any one out there with some idea? :)

Hello,

Removing the filter is no good idea, because you would have to disassemble the camera completely. This would also destroy the calibrated distance between the CCD and the housing. This results in blurred images. If you removed the filter, you will loose the guarantee.

The DBK camera models are without the IR cut filter.

Thanks
It's not the answer I wanted to hear, :o
my inexperience has been expensive:)

Given that the camera will have limited use with the IR cut filter, I probably don't have much to lose by trying to modify it, if it doesn't work I'll then have to think about getting another camera:rolleyes:

Hi,

It is your decision :-)

Could someone point me to where i might find a chart showing frequency cutoff response for the IR filter on the DFK 41AF02.AS.

Cheers

Hi,

All questions for spectral sensitivity and behavior should be answered here:
