    Astronomik OIII Filter Visual 1.25in (E28,5)

    Best visual filter for Planetary Nebulae

    Perfect for Supernova remnants

    Fits 1.25″ eyepieces

    From the start, the Astronomik OIII filter Visual 1.25in has been very specifically designed for the visual observation of gaseous and planetary nebulae. The extremely narrow pass band of the two OIII lines brings a substantial contrast gain to these lines even under the best observation conditions. On faint supernova remnants and faint planetary nebulae, the Astronomik OIII filter Visual 1.25in will often make the difference as to whether the object can be seen or not!

    The optimal aperture ratio for the use of the filter is 1:3.7 to 1:15 with apertures of more than 6″ (150mm). Transmission losses and chromatic distortions, which arise with other filters, occur with Astronomik OIII filter Visual 1.25in,  only when extremely bright aperture ratios of 1:3 and more come into play. The Astronomik OIII filters Visual 1.25in thus can expand the view of dispersed objects, generally speaking, to the whole visual field of view of the eyepiece and are not limited to only the center of the eyepiece.

    Main use

    Since enough light must be available to make use of the OIII filter it is best to use this filter with apertures of more than 6″ (150mm). Smaller instruments do not gather enough light for meaningful and satisfying astronomical work. However, please note: Many experienced Deep Sky observers, with apertures of more than 10″ (250mm), prefer using the OIII filter instead of the more versatile UHC filter. Due to the high optical quality of the Astronomik OIII filter substrate you will see the same needle-sharp stars as you would from your regular telescope.



    Astronomik OIII Filter Visual 1.25in Features

      • Visual observation (dark skies): Very good, huge contrast enhancement at O III-emission nebulas
      • Visual observation (urban skies): Very good, huge contrast enhancement at O III-emission nebulas
      • DSLR photography (original): Very good, huge contrast enhancement at O III-emission nebulas
      • typ. 95% transmission at 496nm (OIII)
      • typ. 95% transmission at 501nm (OIII)
      • Complete blocking of all disturbing wavelength coverages
      • The ideal filter for telescopes 10 ” (25cm) and larger
