    Optolong Night Sky H-Alpha Filter - 1.25”

    Optolong's 1.25" Night Sky Hydrogen-Alpha filter, or IR-Pass 650nm filter is perfect for astro-imaging of planets, the Moon, and deep-sky h-alpha regions. This IR-Pass H-Alpha filter enhances surface detail and contrast and minimizes the effects of atmospheric seeing when used in conjunction with RGB filters for planetary imaging. It also makes an excellent introductory H-alpha filter.

    The Night Sky H-Alpha Filter has a 50% transition from blocking to passing at about 640nm, and 95% transmission from 650nm to 1100nm.

    The Optolong 1.25” Night Sky H-Alpha Filter is made with Schott glass that has been multi-coated with an ion-assisted deposition technology to ensure scratch resistance and stability on the central wavelength, or CWL. The filter cell is made of lightweight, strong metal and is CNC machined, sand-blasted, black anodized, and then laser engraved. The result is a super thin filter cell that will produce a clear aperture of 26mm.

     

    Quality Filter Materials:

    • Schott B260 substrate material from Germany, 2.0mm thick
    • CNC machined and black anodized aero-metal filter cell that is ultra-thin to provide largest clear aperture; Laser-engraved to prevent fading
    • Multiple layers of anti-reflection non-cementing coatings applied via electron-beam gun evaporation with Ion-assisted deposition
