Antlia OIII 3nm Pro narrowband filter optimizes the FWHM to 3nm bandpass. The 3nm Pro narrowband filters enhance the contrast of emission targets by lowering the unwanted background signal. Antlia OIII 3nm Pro filters are designed to deliver 85% transmission at the 500.7nm line which provides you with the maximum signal and well-defined nebulae structures.

Antlia OIII 3nm Pro narrowband filter optimizes the FWHM (full width half maximum) to 3nm bandpass. As the bandwidth becomes narrower, the 3nm Pro narrowband filters enhance the contrast of emission targets by lowering the unwanted background signal. Antlia OIII 3nm Pro filters are designed to deliver 85% transmission at the 500.7nm line which provides you with the maximum signal and well-defined nebulae structures.

Conventional broader narrowband filters cause a heavy loss in transmission due to the strong Center Wavelength (CWL) shift. We guarantee T>85% within 1nm range of the center bandwidth, which means that the 3nm Pro narrowband filter can guarantee high transmittance for working with both long focal ratios and fast optical systems. Blueshift data shows that Antlia 3nm Pro filters can be used with nearly all systems as fast as f/3 with minimal loss in emission signal and meet the requirements of fast optics like Hyperstar and RASA.

The out-of-band blocking specification is rated OD5 (0.001%) which delivers an excellent SNR(signal-to-noise ratio) and effective cut-off rate to minimize interference from other wavelengths. Improved sharp cut-off astrophotography 3nm Pro filters are designed to minimize halos around bright stars.

Application and Performance:

High transmittance and smallest bandwidth to maximize contrast

Steep spectral profile minimizes halos around bright stars

A single substrate to eliminate internal reflections

Narrowband Objects: OIII Emission Nebulae, Planetary, Wolf Rayet Nebulae and Supernova Remnants

Use in light polluted areas and dark sites

Extends imaging time when the moon is up

Antlia narrowband Pro filters can be used down to F/3 systems with slight loss of signal

All Antlia Narrowband filters are edge blackened to eliminate internal reflections from stray light

Superior optical reliability reduces post image processing

This filter is not suited to deep sky objects that do not contain OIII emissions.

DO NOT LOOK AT THE SUN WITH ANTLIA FILTERS.

 

When we design filters for astronomy imaging systems, we look at how they will work together with optical systems, carefully designing the blocking and bandpass parameters to achieve an optimum result. The out-of-band blocking rate is a very important performance index since it is designed to sharply attenuate off-band wavelengths. The result is that the Antlia OIII 3nm Pro filter delivers excellent contrast with extremely dark backgrounds whilst delivering a high transmission of the OIII signal. Such filters are more difficult to produce to a consistently high standard.

Each filter is individually tested and scanned to ensure that the quality meets the high-performance parameters. The end result is a filter that achieves excellent contrast but with a higher production cost. We believe the price-to-performance ratio compares more favorably than similar premium filters in the market.
