More About Astronomik H-Alpha 6 nm CCD Filters

For CCD imaging with instruments as fast as f/3.5, the Astronomik H-Alpha 6 nm Filter is an excellent narrow emission-line filter. Not suitable for visual or solar applications. This filter offers complete blockage of all areas of the spectrum with the exception of h-alpha light from emission nebulae.

With a 6 nm full width at half maximum (FWHM), this filter is optimized to display maximum contrast between objects in the h-alpha spectral area, emission nebulae for example, and the skyglow background. While the 12 nm offers similar functionality, the 6 nm provides higher contrast gain because of its smaller FWHM. As a compromise, some background stars will be dimmed or completely eliminated from the final image. To avoid this, use both the 6 nm and 12 nm filters together to allow for maximum contrast without any reduction in your final image's background quality.

Due to its complete elimination of mercury (Hg) and sodium (Na) emissions lines, the primary culprits of light pollution, the Astronomik 6 nm H-Alpha CCD Filter is a great option for imaging under severely light-polluted skies.

Astronomik Sony Alpha 7 Clip Filter System

Made from black anodized aluminum and laser-cut using ultra modern machinery, this patented Astronomik Clip-Filter can be directly inserted into the camera body of MkI, MkII, and MkIII versions of Sony Alpha 7, 7r, and 7s models in just seconds. No modifications are required and all lens functions such as focus, screen, and image stabilization, continue to be operational! In addition, this system also serves as a dust protector, preventing dust from accumulating on your sensor during long exposures.

Please note this filter must NEVER be used for solar observing or imaging. Doing so will cause permanent damage to your eyes.
