About this product

Model:  askar_duo_6nm_d2
Part Number:  ASK2DNSOD2

The ColourMagic Duo Band has high OIII and SII transmission and is ideal for narrowband imaging with colour cameras.

Askar's newly launched ColourMagic Super D 2" Duo-narrowband filters are specifically designed for deep-sky imaging.

As the name suggests, the Super D filters have "Super" halo control.

During the filter research and development, Askar made a 'special design optimisation' for Super D filters.

The filters provide one bandwidth at 6nm and the other outside 6nm.

CWL:  500.7nm & 672nm
Peak transmittance:  85%
Thickness:  1.85 ± 0.05mm
Barrier property:  ≥OD5 @ 200-1100nm
Surface finish:  60/40

Further Notes
Users will have remarkable results When shooting data through dual-band filters (D1 and D2) and a colour camera.
Usually, in astrophotography, the Hα signal-to-noise ratio is stronger, while the OIII is relatively weak. As our two duo-narrowband filters are Hα+OIII and SII+OIII, the combination can balance the signal-to-noise ratio of each channel when shooting data. After image processing, it can achieve an excellent result, almost as good as shooting with a combination of three narrowband filters and a mono camera.
