    Astronomik CLS Light Pollution Filter - SCT Rear Cell

    Astronomik CLS Light Pollution Filter - SCT Rear Cell

    The Astronomik CLS is a light pollution reduction filter for visual observation, black & white and color imaging of nebulae, galaxies and star clusters.

    The Astronomik CLS blocks the light of the spectral lines of mercury and sodium-vapor lamps and lets the largest part of the visible light and H-alpha emissions pass effectively minimizing the orange glow created by urban lighting. All the important emission lines, as well as the spectral region that the very well dark adapted eye can see, can pass through the filter.

    The filters are optimized for use with aperture ratios from 1:3 to 1:15 which in the case of the SCT sized filter will be SCT's between 5 and 30 inches.

    The Astronomik Visual CLS Light Pollution Filter is good for use under both dark and urban skies for reducing light pollution made by mercury-vapor lamps. For film photography and modified DLSR use, the CLS filter gives good performance and near perfect color balance. While this filter does perform well with webcam and video equipment under light polluted skies, it is not suitable for planetary use.
