I just ordered an asi224 and see that I should get a uv ir cut filter after reading many posts. On Amazon there are 3 options from svbony and I'm not sure which to get.

1. Filter only

2. Filter with CCD Camera with C Mount to 1.25 inches Video Camera Barrel Adapter https://a.co/d/6zRvqZA

3. Filter Thread for DSLR Camera Telescope with Webcam Adapter https://a.co/d/47Gg5oK

 

I'm using an 8" apertura dob with a 2x televue barlow

 

Thanks!

You just need the filter, the camera comes with a 1.25" nosepiece and you can thread it into that. No sense buying another one!

If you plan to always use UV/IR cut, you can replace the window on the camera with the ZWO cut window:

Make sure to get the correct size, which I think is the D21.  I did that on my camera and it is super easy to replace the window.
