Astronomik UHC-E Sony Alpha 7 Clip Filter

Astronomik UHC-E filters make a great low-cost alternative for viewing deep sky emission nebulae and comets in severe light pollution. This filter is especially well-suited for smaller telescopes up to 5" (125 mm) in aperture. Blocks superfluous light such as that from street lamps, as well as skyglow, while enhancing emission nebulae and comet contrast.

Providing an FWHM (full width at half maximum) of 45 nm, this Astronomik UHC-E filter emphasizes the contrast between the object you want to see and the background sky, but in a reduced manner when compared to the UHC filter. However, a larger amount of starlight is transmitted. Therefore, the UHC-E filter works better for telescopes with smaller apertures.

Astronomik Clip Filter System

Astronomik's exclusive Clip-Filter system is made from black anodized aluminum and laser-cut using ultra modern machinery. This 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.
