I've searched around but can't seem to seem anything that addresses the differences between ugriz filters and u'g'r'i'z' filters. What are u'g'r'i'z'? Is there a way to convert u'g'r'i'z' into ugriz?




Thanks

the U.G.R.I.Z filters is components of the UGRIZ filter set. U is ultraviolet filter, G=green light, R=red, I-infrared, z=is also part of the near infrared 900 nm filter this is judging from this link.

Scroll down to the bottom to find the conversion from the "primed" symbols to the "unprimed" ones:
