Description

These narrowband filters are for viewing nebulae in the deep sky under a dark sky or a sky with some light pollution.  They filter out specific wavelengths of light to create a high contrast to make nebulae clearer and more visible, where normally, we may not be able to see it with our eyes alone.

 

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

      Comments about Zhumell 1.25 inch High Performance Ultra High Contrast UHC Telescope Filter:

      Highly recommended. I have the 2" and this is just as good. Saw the crab nebula and orion nebula much better than without this filter. Even took a look at Jupiter and it was even better than with a color filter. It even came with a spectrogram report. If you are looking for an economical UHC filter, you could pay much more and it wouldn't be any better.

        Regardless of the amount of light pollution in your area, this UHC filter should be a must buy for those interested in high contrast views of planetary nebula. The other night, I was unable to spot the Owl nebula in my moderately light polluted skies. After putting in this filter, the nebula appeared right where it was suppose to be. The price can't be beat and the quality is great too. For the astronomer on a tighter budget, this is a must buy.

                I have an Meade ETX-60 backpack with only about 2.6" apeture. When using in light polluted city viewing. I have been able to see planetary nebula such as The Great Orion, Bumbbell, Ring, and Lagoon nebulas. These nebulas I haven't before seen from my yard in town. Only from dark site viewing many miles out of town. This filter is well worth the money.

                    I bought this filter to help out with the light pollution problem caused by living in the suburbs. When I first received this filter, I tried it out on one of the easier nebula to observe. The Lagoon Nebula. I was very suprised on how well this filter brought out this nebula. I am very pleased with this product and its performace as a filter as well.

                      I read a lot of Internet articles about uhc filters. They said this one was cheap, but works ok. So, I tried it out, and it is very helpful. I have a lot of skyglow in my area, so without the filter all I could see of the Lagoon Nebula was the brightest area. With the filter it is much better, I can see the "Lagoon." Many other nebula's became visible with the filter. So, considering the price I am very happy.

                        I got this filter to use with my grab and go scope - a 4.5 inch Orion dob. I live in suburban Orlando less that 2 miles from Epcot, so my skies are pretty bright. Sitting on my balcony, I pointed the scope at the Lagoon nebula and was amazed at the performance with this filter. I could see detail that was closer to much larger aperture. Getting excited, I pointed it to the Trifid nebula and could see the dark lanes in the middle of the nebula as well. I am very impressed!
