Optolong OIII 6.5nm Narrowband Filter 36mm Unmounted (OPT-OIII-65NM-36MM)
Optolong improved extra Narrowband OIII-CCD 6.5nm filter is designed for nebula observation allowing 6.5nm bandwidth of light centered on a wavelength of 500nm through, which corresponds to OIII emission lines, 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).
OIII emits 495.9nm and 500.7nm and it is a blue-green coloured filter. Many of images of planetary nebula and supernova remnants are taken only with H-alpha and OIII filters. They show great structural details, but have natural colours, looking like an RGB image.
Main use and Performance
- Suitable for viewing on faint emission nebula of H-Alpha line in full moonlight or in severe light pollution.
- Hubble look of images can be made by the combination of H-alpha, OIII-CCD and SII-CCD, such as the famous “Pillars of Creation” (M16 Eagle Nebula).
- Narrowband imaging with SHO kit (H-alpha7nm, OIII 6.5nm and SII6.5nm) can be done with the moon up in heavy light pollution, so your equipment is not sitting dormant for several weeks.
- 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.
- Multi-layers anti-reflection coating
- Non-cementing optical substrate coating
- Optolong L-Pro filter adopts precision coating based on Ion-assisted deposition coating technology for durability and resistance to scratching, as well as stability on CWL(central wavelength) no deviation affected by temperature change.
- Planetary rotation system offers precision and homogeneity of coatings ensuring high value on transmission of pass-band and Optical density of off-band.
- About colour: due to the influence of ambient light, colour difference of the display and flash photography, the colour of the product may have some colour difference. Detailed colour is in accordance with the final product.
- About coating: the interference filter will show different colours under different light, which is a normal phenomenon. Please refer to the material object.
- About the style: in order to improve the product, the change of design/appearance/parameters has not been updated in time. Please see the subject produce.
- About the description: the series of this product have the same material, technology and design, different sizes only, please note.
