Opotlong narrowband H-beta filter is designed for nebula observation allowing 12nm bandwidth of light centered on a wavelength of 486nm through, and reducing the transmission of certain wavelengths of light, specifically those produced by artificial light including mercury vapour, and both high and low pressure sodium vapour lights and the unwanted natural light caused by neutral oxygen emission in our atmosphere (i.e. skyglow). H-beta emits 486nm and it is a blue-coloured filter.

Description

Use with a large aperture telescope under clear and dark viewing conditions with good seeing.

Suitable for viewing on the faint and elusive Horsehead Nebula and California Nebula.

Narrowband filter do not eliminate the effects of light pollution or increase the object’s brightness. In many cases, they increase the contrast between nebula and night sky, not brightening the nebula.

WARNING: The filters of Optolong are not designed for sun observation. DO NOT LOOK AT THE SUN WITH OPTOLONG FILTER. You would be BLIND if you fail to observe the warning.
