  • Chroma OIII filter, 5nm FWHM

    $460.00$1,195.00
    • H-alpha filters are essential for imaging nebulae and other objects which are rich in ionized hydrogen.
    • At 656.3nm, a narrow-band emission filter is required to separate H-alpha from the SII doublet (671.6nm and 673.1nm).
    • Parfocal for systems f/4.0 or slower
    • Transmitted wavefront better than 0.25 waves/inch
    • Parallelism: less than 30 arcsec
    • Made in the U.S.A.

  • Chroma SII filter, 5nm FWHM

    $460.00$1,195.00
    • SII filters isolate the spectral emission of singly ionized sulfur atoms, also common in nebulae. Emission is at two lines occurring as a doublet, at 671.6 and 673.1 nm. This filter also separates sulfur emission from H-alpha emission (656.3nm).

  • Astrodon 5 nm Narrowband Filters – H-α 5nm

    $380.00$1,250.00

    Filters in stock ship usually ship within 3 weeks.

    You may click the “Get an alert” button to be notified when an out of stock filter is back in stock. It is necessary to pay for back-ordered filters immediately to reserve your spot in our wait list. Often we have more orders for out of stock filters than we have incoming filters. Many Astrodon filters are perpetually out of stock for this reason.

    H-α (hydrogen-alpha) at 656 nm (nanometers) is deep red in color and the most popular narrowband filter. Hydrogen is ubiquitous in the cosmos and is present in emission nebula (North American, Pelican), planetary nebula (Dumbbell, Ring), Wolf-Rayet objects (Crescent, Thor’s Helmet) and supernova remnants (Veil). Many imagers like to present just a black-and-white H-α image of an object. It is has a beauty all by itself, like an Ansel Adams photo. However, most imagers blend their H-a data into their red RGB data to enhance structural detail while maintaining a “natural” look. Therefore, the H-α filter should be your first narrowband addition to your LRGB filters. The basic imaging set of 5 filters becomes LRGBH-α.

    Astrodon H-α filters have a center bandwidth of 656.3 nm

  • Astrodon 5 nm Narrowband Filters – SII 5nm

    If you want the look of Hubble Space Telescope (HST) images, such as the famous “Pillars of Creation” (the Eagle Nebula, Messier 16), then the next filter to consider adding to your collection after H-a and OIII is the SII (es-two) or sulfur filter. The SII filter, like H-a, is a deep red filter near 672 nm. H-a, OIII and SII filters provide that Hubble look for many emission nebula. Again, tri-color narrowband imaging with these three filters can be done with the moon up, so your equipment is not sitting dormant for several weeks.

    Astrodon SII filters have a center bandwidth of 671.6nm
