LRGB Filter Kit
The LRGB filter set is designed for maximum contrast and with extremely high gradients for clear differentiation of colors. The LRGB filter set divides the spectrum into its components Red, Green, Blue and Luminance. OIII emission overlaps on blue and green filters with maximum transmission to allow high efficiency and natural color imaging. Gap between green and red filters serves to block out the primary Sodium light pollution line at 589nm and improves color balance and separation.

1. Optolong LRGB Introduction

Optolong LRGB filter set is designed for maximum contrast and with extremely high gradients for clear differentiation of colors. The LRGB filter set divides the spectrum into its components red, green, blue and luminance.

OIII emission overlaps on blue and green filters with maximum transmission to allow high efficiency and natural color imaging. Gap between green and red filters serves to block out the primary Sodium light pollution line at 589nm and improves color balance and separation.

  • RGB, parfocal:1:1:1
  • Creat images in their true original colors showing a wealth of natural detail;
  • Steep bandpass filters to eliminate UV and IR interference;
  • Include Luminance (UV/IR Cut), Red, Green, and Blue filters to reproduce the star's color;

How to read the chart?

▲The horizontal axis is the Wavelength in Nanometers(nm).

▲The vertical axis is transmission in %.

▲The WHITE line shows the transmission of the L-CCD filter. R-CCD filter line is shown in RED. G-CCD filter line is shown in GREEN. And the B-CCD linke is shown in BLUE.

 

 

3. Coating Technology

·Multi-layers anti-reflection coating

·Non-cementing optical substrate coating

·Optolong filter adopts precision coating based on Ion-assisted deposition coating technology for durability and resistance to scratching, as well as stability on CWL(central wavelength) no deviation affected by temperature change.

·Planetary rotation system offers precision and homogeneity of coatings ensuring high value on transmission of pass-band and Optical density of off-band.

Ⅱ. Globular Cluster M5© Astrodoc Ron Brecher   

Globular cluster M5 contains hundreds of thousands of stars.and is one of my favourite objects to view in any scope. Bright globular clusters remind me of sugar spilled on a black table cloth.

III. van den Bergh 152 and Barnard 175 © Astrodoc Ron Brecher

van den Bergh 152 (vdB 152; a.k.a. Cederblad 201) is the prominent blue reflection nebula on the right side of this image. It lies at the end of Barnard 175, the pillar of dust filling this field. The dark area connected to vdB is a Bok globule, a dense accumulation of cosmic dust from which stars are often born. The whole complex lies in the direction of the constellation Cepheus, about 1400 light years away and spanning 7 light years. Interestingly, the bright star illuminating vdB 152 was likely not born within this complex as it is moving through space at a different speed than the nebula.
