Description

  • Specialized astrophotography filter designed for deep-sky imaging in light polluted skies with CCD or DSLR cameras
  • The SkyGlow Imaging filter suppresses up to 99% transmission of specific light wavelengths responsible for light pollution
  • Enhances contrast of all types of deep-sky objects: galaxies, nebulas, and star clusters
  • Filter with metal filter cell construction preserves neutral color balance, eliminating need for corrective color processing later
  • Enables longer astrophotographic exposure times without background saturation due to sky glow
  • Introducing a must-have filter for any astrophotographer that doesn't happen to live on Mauna Kea. With the SkyGlow
    Imaging filter you can take incredible deep-sky images under light-polluted skies with your CCD or DSLR camera. That's
    because we custom designed the filter to selectively block the specific wavelengths of light associated with urban sky
    glow, letting the light emitted from deep-sky objects shine through. You'll see a marked increase in image contrast for
    all types of deep sky objects, even faint galaxies, which typically are suppressed through visual light pollution
    filters. By blocking up to 99 percent transmission of the offending wavelengths, the SkyGlow Imaging filter enables
    longer exposure times without background saturation. Because the white light spectrum remains largely intact, the color
    balance of the image is not affected, eliminating the need for corrective processing later. The improvement in contrast
    achieved with the SkyGlow Imaging filter is remarkable. Just look at the adjacent filtered and unfiltered actual image
    examples. With this filter you can take long-exposure photographs faint galaxies, nebulas, and star clusters from a
    light-polluted city, or from a suburban back yard brightened by a nearby street lamp. Your images will turn out better
    than you ever thought possible. Don't let light pollution spoil your deep-sky images! Get a SkyGlow Imaging filter today
    and enjoy vivid, high-contrast shots - from anywhere!
