Description

This particular filter allows light transmission in the doubly ionized oxygen wavelengths.  This is particularly good for viewing double star systems where a lot of emissions are in the doubly ionized oxygen range. 

 

Oxygen III (O-III) are great for viewing diffuse and planetary nebulae.  The views of the Veil, Ring, Dumbbell, Crescent and Orion nebulae are dramatically improved.

    I have been wanting to get one of these filters for a while now. Since my telescope, and most of my eyepieces and accessories are Zhumell, I figured why not. But Zhumell didn't offer one.. until now.My telescope is a Zhumell 10" DOB, and I live and observe from my rural home site. It's pretty dark out in the back field, just a little sky glow from the neighbors security light down the street and from the next town about 8 miles away.I have read in astronomy books, that these filters are a must have. So, I figured why not for this price. Let me tell you, I'm glad I got this. If you like to observe Nebula's like Orion, The Ring, Dumbbell ECT get this.It screws right on any threaded 1.25" eyepiece. The first time I looked at the ring Nebula I couldn't believe the difference at first. The ring just POPS OUT OF THE SKY AT YOU. I can see why this is a almost must have item in your case.I would not hesitate for one second to recommend this. Zhumell makes very good scopes and equipment. For this price, jump on it and you will be glad you did. [...] Well worth it.

    I was hopeing this would help me find faint objects. I I use my goto scope and find the object it does make it brighter and dims the serounding stars. works better in dark conditions than when the moon is bright. This was my experience yours may be different. So far with the 8 different filters I have I prefer the view with no filters the best.

        I guess my expectations were higher than actual results achieved. This filter does however do what it says it does. I did see much more nebulosity than without it. Could not photograph through it as it made everything green. This was not apparent visually. For the price this is a steal!

          Been shopping for an O3 filter for a while. couldn't believe the price. Very happy with it. Folks have to remember these work best with a telescope of 8" or larger aperture.

          Comments about Zhumell 1.25 Inch High Performance O-lll Telescope Filter:

          This is a good O-III filter for the money. It worked well for the Orion Nebula in my Starblast 4.5 reflector telescope. My only complaint is that it has only 60% transmission at the O-III bands. It's a bit too dark for dim DSO's in my telescope. It would work better in telescopes 6 inches or larger.
