Broadband filters

A set of BVRI broadband filters is available specifically for use with TAURUS. The filters have a diameter of 125mm, so mount in the focal plane filter wheel without restricting the field of view. The design of the filters is identical to that of the KPNO Harris filters. Transmission curves are given in La Palma Technical Note 73.

Adapters are available to allow the 50mm square filters originally purchased for use on the INT and JKT to be used in the TAURUS focal plane filter wheel. However, these filters restrict the field of view to 3.8 arcmin square.
