Unlock the potential of your DSLR and CCD cameras with the Optolong L-eXtreme Filter. This dual-band pass filter, designed for DSLR CCD control, efficiently isolates H-Alpha and Oxygen III nebula emission lines, delivering unparalleled contrast and signal-to-noise ratio. Perfect for amateurs in light-polluted skies, this filter ensures rich nebula imaging even in challenging conditions. Explore the universe with Optolong's cost-effective and convenient L-eXtreme Filter.

1. L-eXtreme Introduction

The Optolong L-eXtreme Filter, featuring two 7nm bandpass filters, is tailor-made for one-shot color cameras like DSLRs and monochrome CCD cameras. Designed for fast systems, this filter is a game-changer for amateurs seeking rich emission nebula imaging, even in bright, light-polluted skies. Optolong's competitive pricing makes the L-eXtreme Filter the go-to choice for astrophotographers aiming to maximize contrast and signal-to-noise ratio between nebulae.

Key Points:

  • Isolates H-Alpha and Oxygen III nebula emission lines.
  • Suited for fast systems, including DSLR and monochrome CCD cameras.
  • Ideal for capturing emission nebulas in light-polluted skies.
  • Competitive pricing for amateur astronomers.

2. Difference and Advantage

Distinguished from the Optolong L-eNhance filter, the L-eXtreme is a dual-band pass filter that transmits H-Alpha and Oxygen III emission lines. The advantage lies in its precise isolation of these lines, with no transmission between H-beta and OIII lines. This unique feature effectively blocks light pollution, maximizing nebula signal and darkening the sky background during imaging.

Key Points:

  • Dual-band pass filter transmitting Ha and OIII emission lines.
  • No transmission between H-beta and OIII lines.
  • Maximizes nebula signal, protecting against light pollution.
  • Ideal for astrophotography in very light-polluted areas.
