Product Details

  • The H-alpha filter is a narrow band filter for CCD photography - size 2-Inch by Astronomik:

    This Astronomik filter lets the H-alpha light of emission nebulae pass and blocks nearly the whole remainder of the spectrum where the CCD is sensitive.

    The Full Width at Half-Maximum (FWHM) of 12 nm is optimized for the use with common CCD cameras and allows the use of very fast optics. It should be noted that the filter has a transmission of up to 99-percent. Another advantage of the 12 nm filters is the availability of guiding stars for cameras with a built-in-autoguider (SBIG). If you use a very strong filter like our 6 nm filter you often won't find a usable guide-star.

    The range of application extends from 1:2.8 to 1:15. Transmission losses and chromatic distortions, which arise with other filters, only occur with Astronomik filters when extremely bright aperture ratios of 1:2 and more come into play.

    The Astronomik H-alpha-CCD (12 nm version) increases the contrast between objects, in this case between the H-alpha emission line and the skyglow background. Our Astronomik H-alpha-CCD (12 nm version) completely suppresses the emission lines of artificial lighting (mercury (Hg) and sodium (Na)) and skyglow. When using the OIII CCD and the SII-CCD filters you can obtain three-color images of emission line objects (gas nebulae) from locations with very strong light pollution. To do so, you would take an image in three different wavelengths, select each one as a color-channel in Photoshop and paste them together as a color image. The Astronomik H-alpha filter may NOT be used for solar observation. f you plan to create color images from emission line data, our CLS-CCD filter is a great choice for the Luminance channel.
