Telescopes Canada will be closed for shipping and pick-up orders from Friday June 24th to Monday June 27th inclusive. Online orders will still be accepted as per normal and will be shipped Tuesday June 28th. Technical support will continue to be available.
NOTE: Some manufacturer back order lead times are longer than usual. Please ask us regarding specific products.
6.5 nm FWHM, recommended for optical systems from f/10 to f/3.5
Reflex-Blocker™ hard coated and planeoptically polished – with sealed coating edges (Life-Coat™)
Blackened edges all around, with filter-lead-side-indicator in the form of a telescope-sided black outer rim
Optimized for modern CMOS cameras, but likewise excellent for CCD camera technologies
We explicitly warn against observing the sun with a DeepSky 6.5 nm (equivalent to 65 Ångstroem) H-alpha narrowband filter, specialized solar chromosphere and prominence filters from SolarSpectrum start at 0.8 Ångstroem. Photographic experiments with a camera are theoretically possible, but by no means observe the sun with naked eyes – you endanger your eyesight!
This new generation of Baader CMOS-filters features:
CMOS-optimized Baader Filters
Ever more narrow passbands
Reflex-Blocker™coatings, for largest ever freedom from halos, even under most adverse conditions concerning aux-optics
FWHM on each filter category carefully designedto allow for 1:1:1 exposures, matched for typical CMOS quantum efficiency and s/n ratio
Identical filter thicknessto existing standards, with utmost care for parfocality
Blackened edges all around, with filter-lead-side-indicator in the form of a black frontside outer rim, to additionally eliminate any reflection due to light falling onto the edge of a filter
Each filter coated individually, with sealed coating edge (NOT cut out of a larger plate with coatings left exposed,read more)
Life-Coat™:evermore hard coatings to enable a non-aging coating for life – even in a most adverse environment
These all new CMOS-optimized filters work magnificently with all existing digital camera technologies, be it CMOS or CCD. However – an owner of CCD-camera-technology will still find our previous, extremely affordable, narrowband filter technology to be fully apt for excellent imaging. But: "the Better always is enemy to the Good".
