Astronomik CLS CCD Light Pollution XL Clip Filter - Nikon Full Frame

  • Featuring a Nikon Full Frame clip format, this Astronomik CLS CCD XL Clip Filter is known to be compatible with Nikon D800, D810, and D850 full frame DSLR camera bodies.
  • Capable of being added or removed using only your finger, this filter rests securely and stress-free in the camera and does not require any tools for use.
  • Cameras using this filter do not need to be modified.
  • Intercepts light from mercury and sodium-vapor spectral lines while letting the largest section of visible light and H-alpha emissions to pass through, thus eradicating much of that irritating orange glare resulting from light pollution in heavily populated areas.
  • See more stars and nebula detail with this Astronomik CLS-CCD Filter.
  • As well as serving as an excellent imaging filter, the Astronomik CLS CCD Light Pollution Filter is also ideal for deep sky observing with telescopes of any aperture or photo lens with an f/3 focal ratio and above.
  • Allows close to 100% transmission from 450 nm to 530 nm which encompasses the visible light and h-alpha portions of the spectrum.
  • Astronomik filters all have multi-layer coatings to protect against the damaging effects of scratching, aging, and high humidity.
  • Made in Germany, a country renowned for producing superior quality optics!


More About the Astronomik CLS CCD Nikon XL Full Frame Clip Filter

Since DSLR Cameras have been remodeled for astronomical use, they can now accommodate CLS-CCD Filters in severe light-polluted conditions. The contrast between celestial objects and the background is greatly enhanced with this filter. Compared with UHC filters, the CLS-CCD has a wider transmission curve, allowing more light to be tranmitted, making stars appear less dimmed. Astronomik CLS-CCD filters have been optimized to block as much artificial light as possible while, at the same time, yielding the best performance for approved wavelengths.

A good filter for DSLR, CCD, and black & white film photography, along with deep sky observation. By blocking mercury and sodium-vapor lamps, and letting the largest section of visual and H-alpha emissions to pass, the CLS-CCD filter effectively cuts out the majority of surrounding light pollution, eliminating that irritating orange glow. This filter works best with lenses of all apertures with focal ratios of f/3 and above.

With the Astronomik CLD CCD Light Pollution Filter, you'll experience easier Double Star resolution. For those who want to create color images from emission line data, the CLS-CCD Filter is an excellent option for the Luminance channel. Like all Astronomik Filters, this CLS-CCD filter is parfocal with all other Astronomik filters. This 1 mm thick filter is diffraction limited to maintain the current optical performance of your telescope. It is impervious to blemishes from scratching, aging or high humidity. Comes with a superior quality, durable plastic storage case.
