F25CN270 - NUV-MAMA

Description

The F25CN270 filter with the NUV-MAMA provides medium bandwidth imaging near the 2798 Å MgII feature.

Recommended Uses

Continuum filter for MgII imaging.

Special Considerations

There is a substantial redleak in this filter. Sources with a red underlying continuum may be difficult to observe. Users should be careful to take into account the underlying continuum in estimating whether the observation will fall within the bright object protection limits.
