An IR filter is for white light only (LEDs do not work with IR filters). There is nothing you can do to remove the red glow from your unit except turn it off.

this is what he wrote on the forum:* The IR source presents a visible red light. It doesn't look like too much off-angle, but pointing directly at you, it becomes obvious. I could easily see my friend pointing the monocular at me from 50' away. It is possible to disturb wildlife with it. Again, this is easily fixed by adding a cheap IR filter, but I shouldn't have to do so.

Your light will stay red. Even IR filters on white light will be red.
