Astro Essentials Light Pollution Filter 1.25" / 2"

This contrast-enhancing anodised aluminium filter with optical glass is designed to block wavelengths of light emitted by mercury-vapour lights and other common causes of light pollution whilst providing higher transmission at critical hydrogen-alpha and hydrogen-beta lines than competing filters.

Bright, light-polluted skies appear darker, and the contrast between object and sky is improved significantly. This contrast-enhancement effect is particularly apparent when viewing nebulae. Unlike stars, emission nebulae give off light in a very narrow range of wavelengths. The filter allows maximum transmission of the important wavelengths of H-alpha, H-beta and doubly ionised oxygen – the ones most commonly emitted by nebulae.

Galaxies and star clusters are also enhanced but to a lesser degree. It also enhances reddish planetary detail.

Works well in telescopes of all apertures.

Available in two sizes, threaded to fit either standard 1.25” or 2” astronomical eyepieces.
