    Antlia SII 3nm 2inch Filter

    Antlia SII 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 SII 3nm Pro filter is designed to deliver 88% transmission at the 671.6nm 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>88% 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. Blue-shift data show that Antlia SII 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:Antlia SII 3nm

    High transmittance and smallest bandwidth to maximize contrast

    A steep spectral profile minimizes halos around bright stars

    A single substrate to eliminate internal reflections

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

    Use in light-polluted areas and dark sites

    Extend imaging time when the moon is up

    All Antlia narrowband Pro filters can be used down to F/3 with a 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 SII emissions.
