Orion 05662 1.25-Inch 13 Percent Transmission Moon Filter (Black)

Model: 5662   |    Mpn: 5662   |    Ean: 5554442286959   |    PartNumber: 5662   |   Asin: B0000XMUWS

We are able to see the Moon at night thanks to sunlight reflecting off its rocky surface. When looking at the Moon through a telescope, bright reflected sunlight can produce significant glare. The Moon's disk, even at partial phases, is in fact so intensely bright with reflected sunlight that observing surface details can be challenging due to the overwhelming glare. This glare can be so bright that it washes out most of the interesting lunar features such as craters, rilles, mountains, and valleys. The considerable brightness also reduces contrast on our nearest neighbor in the solar system. To improve contrast and tone down glare easily, we recommend using a neutral-density 1.25 inch Orion 13 percent Transmission Moon Filter. This inexpensive accessory threads directly into a 1.25 inch eyepiece barrel and blocks 87 percent of the light gathered by the telescope, making for more comfortable lunar views exhibiting higher contrast. Once installed on a 1.25 inch telescope eyepiece, the Orion 13 percent Transmission Moon Filter will bring out considerably more lunar surface details thanks to the boosted contrast. Not only will more surface features and details pop out, but you can study them in greater comfort, thanks to Moon Filter reducing overall brightness without altering color. This neutral-density telescope eyepiece filter reduces irradiation, which is the distortion at the boundary between light and dark areas, such as along the lunar terminator. Using a Moon filter also helps conserve dark-adapted vision while viewing the lunar surface, especially when using big telescopes with 6 inches of aperture and larger. The Moon is one of the most interesting objects in the night sky to observe through a telescope. Its rugged surface is a feast for the eyes of amateur astronomers, with fascinating craters, mountainous highlands, and large, dark lunar seas formed by ancient volcanic activity.

Features

  • The Orion 1.25 inch 13 percent Transmission Moon Filter reduces glare so you can see more lunar detail and surface features with your telescope
  • Metal filter cell threads directly into the 1.25 inch barrel of your telescope eyepiece
  • Especially useful for large aperture telescopes through which the light of the Moon can be extremely overwhelming
  • Telescope eyepiece filter transmits only 13 percent of the incoming light, boosting contrast and ability to discern detail on the Moon
  • Perfectly neutral color will not alter the natural color of the Moon

Celestron 1.25" Moon Filter

Model: 94119-A   |    Mpn: 94119-A   |    Ean: 0012304549529   |    PartNumber: 94119-A   |   Asin: B00006LSVL

The Moon has the distinction of being the most often viewed celestial object through backyard telescopes. It is undoubtedly beautiful and mysterious, and is one of those constants in our lives that connects us to every other being on our planet. Regardless of who we are or where we live or travel, we all look at the same moon. It is difficult to look at the Moon through a telescope and see all of the details due to its brightness. Our eyes are not ready for the bright beam of light that emits from the eyepiece, and they stop down , just as they would when you step out into the sunlight on a bright summer s day. When we re in the sunlight, we often wear sunglasses. They help us relax our eyes, protect us from glare, and help us see things more clearly. When amateur astronomers observe the Moon, we use a moon filter. A Celestron Moon Filter provides similar benefits to those of sunglasses...our eye relaxes and opens up to let us see more detail. This is especially important when observing the Moon when it is near full. The Celestron Moon Filter simply screws onto the insert barrel of most 1.25 eyepieces. It only takes a second or two to transform your regular eyepiece into one suited for lunar observations. A Moon Filter is also helpful when observing Venus or bright terrestrial scenes. This filter is not suitable for viewing the Sun.

Features

  • Reduce glare and increase contrast of the Moon with the Celestron 1.25" Moon Filter
  • Also useful for extra bright planets as well as terrestrial viewing over sand or snow
  • Threads onto most 1.25 eyepieces in seconds

Gosky 1.25 Inch Light Pollution Filter for Telescope

Model: 4332013166   |    Mpn: QHFT082   |    Ean: 0747380971710   |    PartNumber: QHFT082   |   Asin: B01LGZNMGG

Gosky 1.25 Inch Light Pollution Filter for Telescope
Light pollution filters are designed to improve the visibility of deep sky objects by blocking out the mercury vapor, sodium vapor, and other such emission lines from man-made or natural sources which contribute to light pollution. In turn, these filters allow a broad range of more useful wavelengths to pass to the eye or imaging sensor. By selectively screening out of some of the background sky glow, the contrast is increased and allows deep sky objects to stand out against the background. Also improves contrast on reddish planetary detail. Works well in telescopes of all apertures but is highly recommended for use on telescopes, where conventional filters swallow up too much light. The filter will fit all standard sized 1.25" eyepieces and accessories. Can be threaded on both sides for stacking with other filters if necessary. It is mounted in a nicely anodized housing.Comes with sturdy plastic case-proect the eyepiece from dust and moisture. And it is available in two sizes, threaded to fit standard 1.25 astronomical eyepieces. Specifications:

Alstar 1.25" O-III Filter - Produces Near-photographic Views of the Veil, Ring, Dumbbell and Orion Nebula, Among Many Other Objects

Model: SKU_AM_OF1A   |    Mpn: 6971336220360   |    Ean: 6971336220360   |    PartNumber: 6971336220360   |   Asin: B0778MLRPW

The Alstar 1.25" O-III Filter is comparable to the Alstar UHC filter in its function. The difference is that this filter only allows the light of doubly ionized oxygen through. This means that there is an enormous increase in contrast with diffuse, planetary and extremely dim nebulae. This is a special narrowband filter which allows an even smaller range of wavelengths than the Alstar UHC filter. Even so, there are innumerable astronomical objects which can be first observed in detail with this filter or cannot be seen at all without it. A prime example is the Veil nebula in the constellation of Cygnus. It's a great accessory for observations of nebulae due to its capability to suppress all light that lies outside its 4960-5010 angstrom (496-501 nm) passband. This filter can be used for astrophotography as well. The O-III 1.25" Filter has a standart barrel diameter so you can use it with a telescope of any brand. Note that this filter gives a green tint to observed objects. The O-III provides an even greater contrast boost on some objects than the UltraBlock narrowband filter. And for nebulas, every little bit helps! It substantially improves contrast and outperforms the UHC for most planetary nebulae while on apertures of 10" or more, it outperforms the UHC filter for all types of nebulae. The Alstar 1.25" O-III Filter isolates just the two doubly ionized oxygen lines (496 and 501nm lines) emitted by diffuse, planetary and extremely faint nebulae. Thus, these faint objects become much more visible against the blackened background of space. The Alstar 1.25" O-III Filter produces near-photographic views of the Veil, Ring, Dumbbell and Orion nebula, among many other objects. Performs well under both light-polluted and dark skies.

Features

  • Each Alstar 1.25" O-III Filter is individually inspected and proudly inscribed with the percentage of light transmittance of the two O-III emission lines.
  • Not only useful at light-polluted sites; the contrast is also increased at dark sky sites, can be used with all 1.25 eyepieces. Filter made from high-grade glass with dichroic interference and antireflection coatings.
  • Completely blocks virtually all other visible wavelengths of light so views of nebulas are optimized. Increases contrast through selective filtration-Anti-reflection coated to prevent glaring and ghosting.
  • Especially useful for large aperture telescopes through which the light of the Moon can be extremely overwhelming. Allowing just for the Double Ionized Oxygen lines between 496mm to 501nm to pass through at 95%.
  • 1.25 O-III Filter greatly enhances contrast during visual observation of gaseous and planetary nebulae in all sky conditions. Astrophotographic 1.25 filter allows high-contrast imaging even in areas with strong light pollution.

The UltraBlock is a great filter for deep-sky observers located at highly light-polluted sites. Blocks all forms of light pollution - mercury vapor and sodium emission bands - while passing the critical hydrogen-beta and ionized oxygen wavelengths. With an UltraBlock, emission and planetary nebulas surface from the washed-out background sky. In dark skies, the UltraBlock also enhances the sky presence of a significant number of fainter deep-sky objects over unfiltered and wideband-filtered views.

Features

  • In areas plagued with significant light pollution, our UltraBlock eyepiece filter greatly increases contrast of emission and planetary nebulas
  • Allows you to see features and details through a telescope that would normally be lost due to light pollution
  • Blocks all forms of light pollution while passing critical hydrogen-beta and ionized oxygen wavelengths of light
  • Enhances the sky presence of a significant number of fainter deep-sky objects

Astromania 2" O-III Filter - produces near-photographic views of the Veil, Ring, Dumbbell and Orion nebula, among many other objects

Model: SKU_AM_OF2   |    Mpn: SKU_AM_OF2   |    Ean: 6970019290973   |    PartNumber: SKU_AM_OF2   |   Asin: B0141U8QGY

The Astromania 2" O-III Filter is comparable to the Astromania UHC filter in its function. The difference is that this filter only allows the light of doubly ionized oxygen through. This means that there is an enormous increase in contrast with diffuse, planetary and extremely dim nebulae. This is a special narrowband filter which allows an even smaller range of wavelengths than the Astromania UHC filter. Even so, there are innumerable astronomical objects which can be first observed in detail with this filter or cannot be seen at all without it. A prime example is the Veil nebula in the constellation of Cygnus. It's a great accessory for observations of nebulae due to its capability to suppress all light that lies outside its 4960-5010 angstrom (496-501 nm) passband. This filter can be used for astrophotography as well. The O-III 2" Filter has a standart barrel diameter so you can use it with a telescope of any brand. Note that this filter gives a green tint to observed objects. The O-III provides an even greater contrast boost on some objects than the UltraBlock narrowband filter. And for nebulas, every little bit helps! It substantially improves contrast and outperforms the UHC for most planetary nebulae while on apertures of 10" or more, it outperforms the UHC filter for all types of nebulae. The Astromania 2" O-III Filter isolates just the two doubly ionized oxygen lines (496 and 501nm lines) emitted by diffuse, planetary and extremely faint nebulae. Thus, these faint objects become much more visible against the blackened background of space. The Astromania 2" O-III Filter produces near-photographic views of the Veil, Ring, Dumbbell and Orion nebula, among many other objects. Performs well under both light-polluted and dark skies.

Features

  • 2" O-III Filter greatly enhances contrast during visual observation of gaseous and planetary nebulae in all sky conditions. Astrophotographic 2" filter allows high-contrast imaging even in areas with strong light pollution.
  • Especially useful for large aperture telescopes through which the light of the Moon can be extremely overwhelming. Allowing just for the Double Ionized Oxygen lines between 496mm to 501nm to pass through at 95%.
  • Completely blocks virtually all other visible wavelengths of light so views of nebulas are optimized. Increases contrast through selective filtration-Anti-reflection coated to prevent glaring and ghosting.
  • Not only useful at light-polluted sites; the contrast is also increased at dark sky sites, can be used with all 2 eyepieces. Filter made from high-grade glass with dichroic interference and antireflection coatings.
  • Each Astromania 2 O-III Filter is individually inspected and proudly inscribed with the percentage of light transmittance of the two O-III emission lines.

Celestron 93623 Narrowband Oxygen III 1.25 Filter

Model: 93623   |    Mpn: 93623   |    Ean: 0050234936231   |    PartNumber: 93623   |   Asin: B0007UQNWC

For viewing many common nebulas Reduces glare and light scattering Increases contrast through selective filtration Made of high quality, solid plane parallel glass with excellent homogeneity Anti-reflection coated to prevent glaring and ghosting

The Celestron 93623 Narrowband Oxygen III 1.25-inch filter is a remarkable advance for the serious visual observer of emission nebulae. One of the biggest advantages of narrowband filters is that by passing only the light emitted by nebulae, light from artificial sources like street lights is blocked. This allows you to take detailed exposures of nebulas from a suburban location that can rival shots from much darker sites. The Celestron 93623 is made of high quality, solid plane parallel glass.

Features

  • For viewing many common nebulas

Gosky 2 Inch Light Pollution Filter for Telescope
Light pollution filters are designed to improve the visibility of deep sky objects by blocking out the mercury vapor, sodium vapor, and other such emission lines from man-made or natural sources which contribute to light pollution. In turn, these filters allow a broad range of more useful wavelengths to pass to the eye or imaging sensor. By selectively screening out of some of the background sky glow, the contrast is increased and allows deep sky objects to stand out against the background. Also improves contrast on reddish planetary detail. Works well in telescopes of all apertures but is highly recommended for use on telescopes, where conventional filters swallow up too much light. The filter will fit all standard sized 2" eyepieces and accessories. Can be threaded on both sides for stacking with other filters if necessary. It is mounted in a nicely anodized housing.Comes with sturdy plastic case-proect the eyepiece from dust and moisture. And it is available in two sizes, threaded to fit standard 2 astronomical eyepieces. Specifications:
