The IR corrected SD Glass (special low dispersion glass) has lower chromatic aberration than ED glass (extra-low dispersion glass) which allows the lens to always stay in focus, from visible light to infrared light.

With a 8.6 - 154mm focal length the HIR8-154M can benefit almost any application.

Designed to fit a C-Mount camera with a 1/2" CCD or smaller, this can also be used on a CS-Mount camera with an additional C/CS adapter.
