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.

 

CHOKING HAZARD - small parts may pose a risk to children under 6 yrs.

    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.

      Great item for a low price.

      I am new to astronomy and order this item because I live in an urban area and heard it helps filter out light pollution.

      This filter adds a greenish tint to what your are viewing and darkens the background.

            I've been looking for an O-III filter for my telescope for a couple months now. I was looking at the Lumicon O-III filter, but that one is $120. What a deal on this filter!!! At 1/12th the price of the Lumicon, I had to atleast give this a try. Nice filter overall. It's the only O-III filter that i've used, so i can't compare it to everything. But it definitely helps with the contrast and colors of planets and nebulas.
