Astronomik - CLS Light Pollution Filter - 50mm Round (Un-Mounted)
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. 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. Transmission losses and chromatic distortions, which are problems with other filters, only appear with Astronomik filters when extremely bright aperture ratios of 1:2 and more are used. The CLS filter is suitable for use with telescopes of all aperture sizes.
Superior Substrate: Astronomik filters consist of a precision polished substrate on which the actual filter, in the form of very thin (dichroic) interference layers, is applied. Because of these high quality measures Astronomik filters will in no way reduce the performance of your optical system. And contrary to common experience with other manufacturers´ filters, with Astronomik filters stars remain fine needle points of light!
Coating: Astronomik filters consist of up to 130 layers deposited on top of the completely transparent carrier glass. These layers work as the actual filter and as an antireflective coating.
Durability: Astronomik filters are completely scratch resistant, and not sensitive to moisture, dew, or high humidity. With others’ filters, after a few years, you start to notice their filter is no longer up to its full capability. Not so with Astronomik filters which maintain their ‘brand new’ transmission specifications year after year.
