Product Details

  • Astronomik 1.25-inch H-beta Visual Filter

    The Astronomik H-beta is a filter for visual observation, in particular with instruments of larger aperture. It lets the light of the H-beta emission line pass nearly unhindered and blocks the remaining spectral range to the extent that the eye is dark adapted. By the use of the Astronomik H-beta filter, the contrast is increased so strongly, that even the observation of the Horse Head Nebulae with telescopes of 10-inch - 12-inch reaches the realm of the possible.

    The optimal aperture ratio for the use of the filter is 1:4 to 1:6. The Astronomik H-beta filter will allow you to view large objects, in the whole field of view of the eyepiece, even when using wide-angle eyepieces - not only in the center of the eyepiece. This filter  should be used on telescopes with a diameter of 8-inch (200 mm) or larger. Smaller instruments do not gather enough light for meaningful and satisfying astronomical work. Due to the high optical quality of the Astronomik H-beta filter substrate you will see the same needle-sharp stars as you would from your regular telescope.
