- Made in Germany, a country noted for their superb quality optics!
More About the Astronomik H-Alpha 6 nm CCD Filter
An extremely narrow emission-line filter, the Astronomik 6 nm H-alpha filter is for CCD imaging work and not for visual or solar applications. It is designed for use with instruments as fast as f/3.5. This narrowband filter allows the h-alpha light from emission nebulae pass through to your sensor while blocking other areas of the spectrum almost completely.This Astronomik H-Alpha CCD Filter has an FWHM of 6 nm, making it optimal for presenting maximum contrast between objects that give off h-alpha light such as emission nebulae, and the airglow background. While the 12 nm provides functionality analogous to the 6 nm, the latter offers higher contrast gain due to its reduced FWHM. As a result, some background stars will be dimmed or won't appear at all in the final image. This can be avoided simply by using both the 6 nm and 12 nm filters at the same time, allowing for maximum contrast in h-alpha objects while maintaining the visibility of the background stars in the resulting image. Given that the Astronomik 6 nm H-Alpha CCD Filter completely suppresses the main offenders of light pollution, mercury (Hg) and sodium (Na) emissions lines, it makes for an excellent filter for use in a light-polluted environment.
