F25QTZ—FUV-MAMA, Longpass
Description
The F25QTZ filter with the FUV-MAMA provides high-throughput broad-band FUV imaging with better rejection of geocoronal emission than the F25MAMA or F25SRF2 modes and the same field of view and spatial resolution.
Recommended Uses
Recommended filter for broad-band FUV imaging of faint targets.
Special Considerations
With this filter the background is dominated by detector dark current. The dark current is not constant across the detector and not constant in time. This could limit the sensitivity for very extended faint targets, however, note that the FUV-MAMA dark is extremely low.
Users may also want to consider whether the ACS SBC detector might be better for their observing program.
