Product Details

Explore Scientific 1.25" CLS City Light Pollution Reduction Filter. Range from 436nm to 536nm with peak at 488nm. Peak transmission 98.3%. Item # 310225.

One of the most important obstacles for the exploration of the night sky is the brightening of the night sky by artificial lights such as streetlights. The night sky is not really dark in the vicinity of towns or cities, which reduces the visibility of objects beyond the solar systems enormously. Depending on the type of the celestial object it is possible to increase the contrast dramatically by blocking the annoying artificial light.

The Explore Scientific CLS filter uses a characteristic property of artificial illumination. Streetlights and lamps shine in special colors - the typical colors of high-pressure or mercury lamps. The Explore Scientific CLS nebula filter blocks those colors and thereby increases contrast - the light of the celestial objects can still pass through the filter. The result is astonishing: suddenly objects are visible at locations that were completely empty without filters. In suburban skies for example, the large galaxy M101, the Veil Nebula NGC 6992, or even the bright Dumbell Nebula M27are not clearly visible. By using this filter you can see the nebulae and their structure.

A must for every visual observer. The Explore Scientific nebula filters come with a individual test certificate - your guarantee to receive a premium filter.
