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.
Visual observation (dark skies): Good, to reduce light pollution by mercury-vapour lamps (streetlight)
Visual observation (urban skies): Good, an UHC-E or UHC filter is more suitable
Film photography: Very good, colour balance is near perfect
CCD photography: Good, when used with an additional IR-block-filter
DSLR photography (original): Good, colour balance shifted but contrast enhanced
DSLR photography (astro modified): Very good, colour balance is near perfect
DSLR photography (MC modified): Good, when used with an additional IR-block-filter
Webcam / Video (Planets): Unsuitable
Webcam / Video (Deep Sky): Very good, if light pollution is a big problem

pass from 450 to 540nm and beyond 650nm
Parfocal with other Astronomik filters
Glass thickness: 1mm
Completely resistant against high humidity, scratches and aging effects
Diffraction limited, the filter will not reduce the optical performance of your telescope!
Astronomik filters are delivered in a high-quality, long lasting, filter box
Since 2008 we do ship filters with a completely new design. Any kind of halo or strange reflection is a matter of past
