  1. Optolong: UV-IR cut filter is designed for ultraviolet and infrared wavelength blocking to improve sharpness of the image as most of the optics are designed for the visible spectrum, because it’s very difficult to create a lens with the same focal point for the visible and IR spectrum.It is used on a digital camera and the video, which do not have an IR protection filter toward an image sensor or were remodeled. This is important because unfiltered CCD and CMOS sensors are extremely susceptible to UV and IR rays just outside the visible spectrum that can have a very negative impact on image quality.

  11. Optolong: About L-eNhance Filter
    The relentless spread of urbanization and its associated light pollution have become a growing problem for all amateurs and astro photographers. The current solutions to the problem can be expensive and might include the purchase of a monochrome camera, several types of narrowband filters and a filter wheel.

    L-eNhance provides an economical and practical solution for amateurs. It is a dual-band pass filter which has been designed for DSLR (digital SLR), color CMOS and CCD cameras. The convenience and cost effectiveness of this filter allows amateurs to image a rich selection of astronomical images, even in bright, heavily light-polluted areas. 

    Optolong believes the design of our L-eNhance filter is a technical innovation among filters. It effectively isolates the H-Alpha, H-Beta, and Oxygen III nebula emission lines and achieves a maximum transmission of up to 90%. The performance of this filter delivers images that superbly control the impact from light polluted skies.

    Hydrogen is the largest, the most primitive, the simplest, and the oldest element in the universe. Scientists 
    consider that Hydrogen amounts to more than 90% of visible substance in space. Our sun is 5 billion years old, 
    but so far hydrogen is still the key matter of nuclear fusion. While the sulfur element does not have much 
    scientific significance, so keeping H and O is meaning for exploration of life.
    Therefore, we highlight H-a, H-b, O3 and O2, and reduce the signal of sulfur

  20. Optolong: If you have a Canon EOS APS-C camera that has been converted for astronomical use, this clip-in Optolong OWB filter will allow you to use your camera for terrestrial photography again. Clip the filter in to take terrestrial images, and remove it when you are ready to do astrophotography—its the best of both worlds!

    The Optolong EOS APS OWB Clip 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. Each filter cell is made of lightweight, strong metal and is CNC machined, sand-blasted, black anodized, and then laser engraved.

    Using a Clip Filter on your Canon APS-C Camera

    The Optolong EOS APS Clip filter can be inserted without tools; just use your fingers to insert or remove the filter. Once inserted correctly, it cannot unintentionally fall out.
    No changes to the housing of Canon EOS DSLR are required. All lens functions will work with the Clip installed, including focus, screen, and image stabilization,
    The Optolong clip filter prevents dust from settling on the sensor during long exposures.
    The APS-C clip filters are compatible with EOS APS-C series cameras, including EOS 1100D/600D/60D, etc. If you have a full frame EOS camera, Optolong offers clip filters for these cameras as well.
    Optolong Clip Filters do not function with the Canon EF-S series lenses. These lenses invade the space inside the camera body that would normally be taken up by the clip filter.

  21. Optolong: This UHC, or Ultra High Contrast, filter from Optolong provides a bit more contrast than the CLS filter, but works in much the same way. By reducing the contrast-killing effects of light pollution caused by both artificial and natural sources, the background sky becomes darker, increasing the visibility of your favorite deep-sky objects. Skyglow, which is caused by neutral oxygen in the atmosphere, as well as light from high and low pressure sodium vapor lights and mercury vapor lamps are suppressed significantly, which means you can view or image from areas of heavy light pollution.

    Optolong’s UHC filter lets desirable wavelengths pass at a peak transmission of 95%, including emission lines at OIII, H-Beta, NII, H-Alpha, and SII. This filter also has a substantial red passband, so objects like the Orion Nebula look awesome!

    The Optolong EOS APS UHC Clip 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.

  22. Optolong: The Optolong CLS-CCD filter will improve contrast and increase the visibility of weak outer regions on most emitted, planetary and supernova residual nebulae from polluted locations in a color imaging camera.

    The infrared wavelength of 700-1100nm is cut on the Optolong CLS-CCD filter, which makes it different from the standard CLS filter and makes the CLS-CCD a photographic filter only. A separate IR-cut filter is not necessary when imaging with the CLS-CCD since the IR has already been cut.

    The Optolong CLS-CCD filter works by specifically reducing the transmission of wavelengths of light pollution, in particular the artificial type caused by vapors of sodium vapor and mercury vapor at high and low pressure. The use of a CLS-CCD filter will also increase the contrast by reducing the light radiation caused by the neutral oxygen emissions normally observed in the atmosphere.

    The Opterster CLS-CCD EOS APS-C Clip Filter consists of multi-layered Schott glass with ion deposition technology to ensure scratch resistance and stability on the central wavelength, or CWL. The filter cell is made of light and solid metal, CNC machined, sandblasted, black anodized and then laser engraved.

    Using a Clip Filter on Your Canon APS-C Camera

    The Optolong CLS-CCD clip filter can be inserted without tools; Simply use your fingers to insert or remove the filter. Once inserted correctly, it can not fall unintentionally.
    No modification of the Canon EOS DSLR case is required. All lens functions will work with the installed clip, including focus, screen and image stabilization,
    The Optolong fog filter prevents dust from settling on the sensor during long exposures.

  24. Optolong: The Optolong H-Alpha 7nm is a very narrow emission-line filter that works by permitting a 7nm bandwidth of light, focused on the 656nm wavelength through, and blocking the transmission of contrast-killing light pollution wavelengths. Wavelengths that are in charge of natural light pollution, or skyglow, are radically decreased, as is artificial light pollution brought about by high and low pressure sodium and mercury vapor lights. The outcome is a high contrast image that uncovers the H-alpha line in all its brilliance.

    This Optolong H-Alpha EOS APS Clip filter will give a well defined contrast between the skyglow ackground and H-alpha transmitting objects, but since it has a FWHM of only 7nm, you won't see the same number of stars in the last picture as you would with the Optolong 12nm H-Alpha Filter. Utilize this filter alone for CCD or DSLR imaging, or utilize together with OIII 6.5nm and SII 6.5nm filters to get a tricolor picture of vaporous nebulae from light polluted areas.

    The Optolong EOS APS H-Alpha 7nm Filter is made with Schott glass that has been multi-coated with  ion-assisted deposition technology to guarantee scratch resistance and soundness on the central wavelength, or CWL. The filter cell is made of lightweight, strong metal and is CNC machined, sand-blasted, black anodized, and  finally laser engraved.

  25. Optolong: The L-Pro filter from Optolong is a multi-bandpass filter that works well for photographic use with your Canon EOS APS DSLR. Better color balance is achieved by maximizing the transmission band, allowing you to produce images of broadband emission objects with nominal color cast.

    By reducing the transmission of artificial and natural light pollution, including neutral oxygen (skyglow) as well as light given off from mercury and sodium vapor lamps, the background sky will become darker, allowing the good stuff to shine through. High transmission of main nebulae emission lines at OIII, H-Beta, NII, H-alpha, and SII, when combined with the precision off-band blocking of contrast-killing light pollution, makes this filter perfect for most emission nebulae, reflection nebula, and dark nebulae.

    The Optolong EOS APS Clip L-Pro 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.

    By reducing the transmission of artificial and natural light pollution, including neutral oxygen (skyglow) as well as light given off from mercury and sodium vapor lamps, the background sky will become darker, allowing the good stuff to shine through. High transmission of main nebulae emission lines at OIII, H-Beta, NII, H-alpha, and SII, when combined with the precision off-band blocking of contrast-killing light pollution, makes this filter perfect for most emission nebulae, reflection nebula, and dark nebulae.

    The Optolong EOS Full Frame Clip L-Pro 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.

    Using a Clip Filter on your Canon Full Frame Camera

    The Optolong EOS FF Clip filter can be inserted without tools; just use your fingers to insert or remove the filter. Once inserted correctly, it cannot unintentionally fall out.
    No changes to the housing of Canon EOS DSLR are required. All lens functions will work with the Clip installed, including focus, screen, and image stabilization,
    The Optolong clip filter prevents dust from settling on the sensor during long exposures.
    The EOS FF clip filters are compatible with EOS Full Frame series cameras, such as the 1D X, 5D, and 6D. If you have a standard APS-C EOS camera, Optolong offers clip filters for these cameras as well.
    Optolong Clip Filters do not function with the Canon EF-S series lenses. These lenses invade the space inside the camera body that would normally be taken up by the clip filter.
    To use EOS/T2 and 2” adapters to attach your camera to a telescope you’ll need to insert the Clip-Filter first and then install the desired lens adapters.
