Product code: 8H00LT

Quick Overview

The Astronomik UHC-E filter is the budget filter for deep-sky observation of emission nebulae and comets under light polluted skies. It’s particularly suitable for small scopes.


The EOS Clip XL model plugs directly into the Canon EOS camera body (compatible with all Canon EOS Full Frame 24x36mm sensor camera, except for 5DS) so it is very practical to use.

Details

The UHC-E Filter increases contrast of emission nebulae and comets and blocks the light of typical streetlights as well as airglow. It is best suited for telescopes up to 5" / 125mm.

 

Main use

The Astronomik UHC-E filter provides a FWHM of 45nm and blocks the light of typical streetlights (e.g. sodium and mercury vapour) as well as airglow. Thus it increases contrast between your target and the night sky. The contrast enhancement is less than that of the Astronomik UHC filter, but at the same time the transmitted amount of starlight is greater. It's therefore better suited to smaller telescopes. As the UHC-E filter passes a spectral line of Carbon (due to the higher FWHM) it opens up the possibility of comet observation.


 

Other uses

Observation of Jupiter’s clouds.
Easier resolution of Double Stars.
Photography under light-polluted skies with DSLRs and other cameras.

 

 

Suitability

Visual observation (dark skies): Reasonable, an UHC filter is more suitable
Visual observation (urban skies): Good, for telescopes up to 125 mm aperture and medium exit pupil
Film photography: Good, but very long exposure times
CCD photography: Good, when used with an additional IR-block-filter
DSLR photography (original): Good, colour balance is near perfect
DSLR photography (astro modified): 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
