Description

The Night Sky Hydrogen-Alpha Filter is intended for deep sky astrophotography only.


WARNING: DO NOT USE FOR SOLAR OBSERVATION, EYE DAMAGE MAY OCCUR.

 

The Lumicon Night-Sky H-Alpha Filter is a powerful photographic aid in overcoming light pollution during deep-sky photography. It will greatly reduce light pollution, making it ideal for photography of faint emission nebulae. Exposures may be increased up to 10 times without diminishing the black background in your photograph, thus achieving strikingly improved results in black & white film and CCD astrophotography. Both filter surfaces have high light transmittance coatings for maximum performance.


To ensure that your Lumicon filter remains the World's Best, the strictest quality control standards are employed throughout the production process. Each Lumicon Filter is individually inspected for maximum quality assurance.

Pros

  • Good quality

Cons

  • Lengthens exposure time

Best Uses

  • Astrophotography

Comments about Lumicon Night Sky Hydrogen - Alpha Telescope Filters:

I use this with a b&w ccd. While it increases exposure time, it does add some quality to pictures taken. Overall, it works, but it won't produce astounding results on its own.
