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).
This filter provides balanced color for the visible spectrum while blocking most emission from metal-halide and vapor lamp sources which together contribute to sky glow.
Chroma LRGB sets are used worldwide in research and amateur applications. Specifically designed for deep space CCD/CMOS imaging These filters are extremely durable, with coatings withstand humidity changes and extreme temperature fluxes and remain...
OIII 8nm Narrow Band filters isolate the doublet emission of doubly ionized Oxygen. After ionized hydrogen, this is the next most common emission when imaging nebulae. Doublet emission occurs at 495.9 and 500.7 nm.
SII filters isolate the emission from ionized Sulfur atoms, also common in nebulae. Emission is at two lines occurring as a doublet, at 671.6 and 673.1 nm.
