Universal Dark-Sky Filter with 77mm thread for photo lens. Contrast enhancing filter for Aurora- and Deep-Sky imaging.
Especially during Aurora imaging the most important wavelength of 550nm (green) and 630nm (red) this filter let pass by 90%.
In comparrision to CLS filters, the Explore Scientific Dark-Sky Filter is blocking also the yellow Sodium (Na) wave at 590nm which elliminates Sodium-lamp street illumination from your picture.
This is very useful because the yellow light is always a partially mix of green and red light. Removing the yellow wave-length with any image processing software will always damping also the green and red coloring. For Aurory imaging this is of course not wanted.
At these days of increasing light pollution, the Explore Scientific Dark-Sky Filter is absolutely recommended in order to take pictures also from urban conditions.
Finally the slim housing design enables its use also with wide-field photo lens and doesn´t cause any vignetting.
