OPT-11902

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.

    • Blocks artificial light from mercury vaopour lamps, both high and low pressure sodium vapour lights and the unwated natural light caused by neutral oxygen emission in our atmosphere
    • Maximum transmission of the main nebula emission lines: OIII, H-beta, NII, H-alpha as well as SII
    • Can be used for visual observations as well as astrophotography
    • Ideal for sub-rural areas with moderate light pollution
    • 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.
