    The Antlia S-II 4.5nm Edge narrowband filter is not just an affordable alternative; it's a meticulously crafted instrument designed to unlock the hidden depths of the universe.

    Unveiling the Faintest Sulphur Nebulae:

    With a precise 4.5nm bandpass (only 1.5% of the visible spectrum!), this filter isolates the Sulphur II (S-II) emission line at 671.6nm with unparalleled precision. This translates to superior signal-to-noise ratio, capturing even the faintest wisps of S-II-rich nebulae invisible to the naked eye.

    Impenetrable Darkness: The filter minimizes stray light and internal reflections, ensuring an exceptionally dark background, and allowing the delicate details of nebulae to truly shine.

    Maximum Signal, Minimal Compromise: Thanks to its advanced design, the filter boasts a maximum transmission exceeding 90% within 1nm of the center bandwidth for the S-II line. This means you capture the maximum possible signal while maintaining incredible contrast, even with long focal lengths or fast optical systems.

    Fast Optics Friendly: Worried about compatibility with your high-speed setup? Blue-shift data confirms that Antlia Edge filters can be used with systems as fast as f/3 with minimal loss of emission signal. This makes them ideal for telescopes equipped with Hyperstar or RASA configurations.

    Individually Tested, Guaranteed Quality: Each filter undergoes rigorous individual testing to ensure it meets the highest standards. The tight tolerance of the filter substrate guarantees a maximum deviation of only ±0.05 from specifications, making them parfocal. This means you can seamlessly switch between filters without refocusing, saving you valuable observation time.

    IR-Cut Not Required: The filter effectively blocks ultraviolet and infrared light, eliminating the need for a separate IR-cut filter. This simplifies your setup and reduces potential vignetting issues.

     

    A Word of Caution:

    Never, ever point your telescope equipped with this filter towards the sun. Doing so can cause irreversible eye damage. Always prioritize safety when exploring the wonders of the cosmos.
