Baader Moon & Skyglowfilter, 1.25

5.0 out of 5 stars
1 customer reviews


The Baader Planetarium Moon & Skyglow (Neodymium) filter brings an entirely unique approach to planetary contrast enhancement and light pollution reduction. Based on earlier research at Carl Zeiss, Baader has developed a new filter that uses Neodymium glass which filters out a few specific wavelengths from streetlights as well as skyglow from the Moon. The unique spectral characteristics of Neodymium also boost color contrasts by isolating the Red, Green, and Blue regions (so-called RGB enhancement). The result is a filter that leaves natural colors mostly intact, but significantly enhanced.
  

Planetary and Lunar views are improved in all scopes, reflectors, refractors (APO or Achro). Jupiter's Great Red Spot and ruddy hues of the bands are noticeably enhanced, and contrast of Martian surface features significantly boosted. The Background sky is darkened, and subtle details improved. The filter's high efficiency preserves image brightness, and many Galaxies, Nebulae and Globular Star Clusters are improved due to the reduction of skyglow from artificial lighting.
  

The high quality of Baader Planetarium filters permits stacking with no image degradation. Achromat owners will find the combination of Moon & Skyglow and the new Fringe Killer filter to be ideal for planetary viewing. The high light throughput and natural coloration will make achromats perform more like an apochromat. An integrated version is also now available, the Semi-APO filter.
  

The Moon & Skyglow is also optimized for imagers, due to its full IR-blocking.

My favorite astronomical filter

By Philip Canard on October, 17th 2009

This is my standard filter for use in Maks and Newts. Deep sky views are significantly improved in town and even at dark sky sites. I almost never break out the UHC filter anymore when viewing galaxies and nebulae. Unless I have a specific reason to use another filter, its almost always being used. Improves planetary views as well as deep skyviews. This is my favorite astronomical filter.
