Even with the Super Angulon. Do you think that any UV could get through that stuff?

    Hello Larry,

    IR filters, just like UV, are lowpass filters. The ideal lowpass filter will cut frequencies above a certain threshold. So, since IR is quite lower than UV, it will probably cut out any UV radiation. Of course, you can never be sure about how effective it is, unless you have a look at it's spectral response graph.

    But I'm curious. What kind of film will you use with that? Is it an opaque filter, or does it let some red light pass?

    That will make them smaller, but sharper.

    Good luck. I'd like to hear what you discover.

    Yup, you are right, of course. Anyway, I will try it without filter, first.
