  • The DayStar Energy Rejection Filter (ERF) has a clear aperture of 100mm.
  • Custom-designed to cover the front objective of your particular telescope model using rear-mounted T-Scanners or Quantum H-alpha filters from DayStar.
  • The DayStar Energy Rejection Filter reduces the heat load on your filter assembly.
  • Transmits light in the desired visual spectrum and can also serve as an aperture mask. Includes cap.
  • When ordering this energy rejection filter, we will need to know the diameter of the front edge of your telescope OTA. If you see your scope listed below, then just state the make and model, as DayStar will already have the specifications necessary. If you have any questions about choosing an ERF for your filter and telescope combination, please email OPT or give us a call at 1-800-483-6287 and we will be glad to help.


DayStar Filters - DayStar 100mm Energy Rejection Filter (ERF)

A DayStar ERF, or energy rejection filter, has its rule. First and foremost, the DayStar Energy Rejection Filter must cover the front objective of any telescope using rear-mounted DayStar T-Scanners or Quantum H-alpha filters. They are "telescope specific" designed"!

What makes a DayStar Energy Rejection Filter work? ERF's reduce the heat load on your filter assembly by absorbing or reflecting ultra-violet and/or infra-red light and transmitting light in the desired visual spectrum. These filters are sometimes red or yellow optical glass, or dielectric IR and UV, but pass the light through in the desired visual spectrum. The DayStar ERF can also serve as an aperture mask to accomplish a straight angle of incidence for light entering the filter.

Because they are a speciality item, DayStar Energy Rejection Filter assemblies operate best at focal ratio of f/30 and slower. Creating an f/30 configuration can be done easily with the proper DayStar ERF and/or a barlow lens. Higher resolution, larger aperture configurations (such as full or half aperture) use a barlow lens, which is sold separately. In order to compute the proper aperture reduction mask, divide your telescope EFL or Focal Length by 30. To compute the proper aperture using a barlow, use the adjusted EFL which includes multiplication by your barlow.

Choosing a DayStar Energy Rejection Filter

All DayStar Energy Rejection Filters are priced by clear aperture, and include the chosen aperture glass, a cell to fit the diameter of your telescope OTA, and a telescope end cap.

Here is a list of common telescopes that can use a 100mm DayStar ERF in either full, half, or reduced configurations:
  • AP 130mm f/6 Starfire - Full with 4X Powermate
  • Meade 4" f/9 Refractor - Full with 3X Powermate
  • Celestron 150mm f/8 Refractor - Half with 2.5X Powermate
  • Takahashi FS102 f/8 Refractor - Full with 4X Powermate
  • William Optics FLT110 - Full with 4X Powermate
  • Orion Sirius 100mm f/9 Refractor - Full with 3X - 4X Powermate
  • Borg Refractor 125 f/6.4 - Full with 4X Powermate
Remember, you are not done ordering your ERF until you have specified the telescope you plan to use with your DayStar Quantum or T-Scanner (rear mounted) filter. If the telescope is listed above, the make and model (i.e. Meade 8" LX200-ACF) is sufficient. However, if you do not see your telescope listed here, please give the make and model as well as the front edge diameter of the OTA. Put this information in the "comments" section of your shopping cart when ordering. If we need more information, we will contact you.
