Optolong CLS CCD Filter - 1.25"

Product Image

The Optolong CLS-CCD (City Light Suppression) broadband filter is designed to improve the visibility of emission deep sky objects. It selectively reduces the transmission of wavelengths of artificial light, specifically those produced by mercury vapour lamps, both high and low pressure sodium vapour lights and the unwanted natural light caused by neutral oxygen emission in our atmosphere.

    The Optolong CLS CCD Filter - 1.25" is a city light pollution filter used to block artificial light sources that deteriorates the contrast from deep sky imaging. These include light from street lights, mercury vapour lamps, sodium vapour lights and natural skyglow which all affect conrast from emission nebula wavelengths. 

    The Optolong CLS CCD Filter then maximises transmission of the main nebula emission lines: OIII, H-beta, NII, H-alpha as well as SII. 

    Crafted using a thin metal cell anodised housing, these filters are suitable with most filter wheels. 

    • Ultra-thin filter cell to maximise the compatibility with most filter wheels
    • Multi-layers anti-reflection coating

    For astronomy cameras, it needs to be used in combination with an IR/UV cut filter. Alternatively the CLS-CCD filter can be used as it cuts off the infared and ultraviolet wavelengths. In DSLR the IR/UV filter is embedded in teh camera so the standard CLS filter is sufficient.

    Light pollution filters do not eliminate the effects of light pollution or increase the object's brightness. It does increase the contrast between nebulae and night sky.

    The Optolong CLS CCD Filters come in 1.25", 2",  and Canon EOS C variations.
