  2. 656nm H-Alpha Filter: Enhances the hydrogen-alpha emissions, bringing out the deep red hues in star-forming regions and large nebulae.
  3. 672nm SII Filter: Targets sulfur II emissions, enhancing the subtle red-pink shades in your astrophotographs.

Each filter is housed in a convenient thread frame, allowing for easy attachment and removal from your 82mm camera lens.

Applications of the SHO Filter Set Kit 82mm

The SHO Filter Set Kit 82mm is ideal for a variety of astrophotography applications:

  • Nebulae: Enhance the vibrant colors and intricate details of nebulae, making them stand out against the night sky.
  • Galaxies: Capture the spiral arms and core of galaxies with enhanced clarity and contrast.
  • Star Clusters: Highlight individual stars in clusters, showcasing their unique colors and brightness.
  • Planetary Details: Although primarily for deep-sky objects, these filters can also bring out certain features in planets.

Benefits of the SHO Filter Set Kit 82mm

Investing in the SHO Filter Set Kit 82mm offers numerous benefits:
