Lumicon Deep Sky Filters
Lumicon Deep Sky Filters
 
The best all-purpose nebula filter on the market today, the Lumicon Deep Sky Filter blocks all high & low pressure mercury and sodium vapor lamp light, neon lights and airglow, while transmitting the rest of the visible spectrum. Visually, the Deep Sky Filter enhances contrast of nebula under both light-polluted and dark skies.  The Deep Sky Filter also passes infrared light, making it an excellent filter for photographing most deep space objects through light-polluted skies. Recommended for telescopes 3" in aperture and larger.

To ensure that your Lumicon filter remains the World's Best, the strictest quality control standards are employed throughout the production process. Each Lumicon Deep Sky Filter is individually inspected and proudly inscribed with the percentage of light transmittance of the H-Alpha, H-Beta and OIII emission lines

Lumicon UHC Filters

Lumicon UHC (Ultra High Contrast) Filters


The ULTIMATE nebula filter. The original Lumicon  Ultra High Contrast Filter is unbeatable for revealing nebulosity. This is achieved by passing three nebula emission lines-the two doubly ionized oxygen lines (496 and 501nm) and the H-beta line (486nm)-while blocking light-pollution and Sky Glow.  The result is superb views of the Orion, Lagoon, Swan and other extended nebulae. Recommended for telescopes 8" and larger in aperture.

To ensure that your Lumicon filter remains the World's Best, the strictest quality control standards are employed throughout the production process. Each Lumicon Ultra High Contrast Filter is individually inspected and proudly inscribed with the percentage of light transmittance of the OIII and H-beta emission lines.

Lumicon O-III Filters

Lumicon Oxygen-III  (O-III) Filters

The legendary Lumicon OIII narrow band-pass filter isolates just the two doubly ionized oxygen lines (496 and 501nm lines) emitted by diffuse, planetary and faint nebulae. Thus, these faint objects become much more visible against the blackened background of space. The Lumicon Oxygen III Filter produces near-photographic views of the Veil, Ring, Dumbbell and Orion nebula, among many other objects. Performs well under both light-polluted and dark skies. Recommended for telescopes 10" or larger in aperture.

To ensure that your Lumicon filter remains the World's Best, the strictest quality control standards are employed throughout the production process. Each Lumicon Oxygen III Filter is individually inspected and proudly inscribed with the percentage of light transmittance of the OIII emission lines.

Lumicon H-Beta Filters

Lumicon Hydrogen-Beta (H-Beta) Filters


Also known as the Horsehead Nebula filter, the Lumicon 2" Hydrogen-Beta Filter isolates only the hydrogen-beta line of the spectrum (486nm) in a narrow pass-band just 9 nm wide, providing maximum contrast. Now you can view extremely faint nebulous objects such as the Horsehead, Cocoon and California Nebulae. In many cases, the Lumicon Hydrogen-Beta Filter is the ONLY way to view these objects. Recommended for 12" or larger telescopes.

To ensure that your Lumicon filter remains the World's Best, the strictest quality control standards are employed throughout the production process. Each Lumicon Hydrogen - Beta Filter is individually inspected and proudly inscribed with the percentage of light transmittance of the H-Beta emission line.

Lumicon Comet Filters
Lumicon Comet Filters

The Lumicon Comet Filter, a narrow band-pass filter (25nm), isolates the 501nm OIII line and both C2 lines at 511nm and 514nm. The high contrast of the filter reveals the delicate ionized tail of gaseous comets, allowing you to see their full extent. The Comet Filter also helps you to better distinguish gaseous comets from dusty comets, which normally show little contrast gain.

To ensure that your Lumicon filter remains the World's Best, the strictest quality control standards are employed throughout the production process. Each Lumicon Comet Filter is individually inspected and proudly inscribed with the percentage of light transmittance of the primary emission lines at 501, 511 & 514nm.
