Orion SkyGlow Filter 1.25-inch

The Orion SkyGlow filter improves the view of deep space objects from moderately light polluted environments.

  • For observers viewing through a telescope from suburban or city skies, the Orion SkyGlow filter can significantly improve the quality of your view
  • The SkyGlow filter enhances deep-sky observations in moderately light-polluted skies
  • Broadband filter blocks the most common wavelengths of light pollution for increased contrast and better views
  • SkyGlow eyepiece filters improve views of nebulae, galaxies as well as open and globular star clusters

Light pollution is waging war on amateur astronomy. But don't surrender - fight back with the Orion SkyGlow Broadband Telescope Filter! The SkyGlow Broadband Telescope Filter is an advanced multilayer "interference" filter that blocks the most common wavelengths of light pollution while passing desirable wavelengths with very little attenuation, yielding dramatically better deep-sky views.

It features improved blocking of mercury-vapor light and higher transmission at critical hydrogen-alpha and hydrogen-beta lines than competing filters. Bright, light-polluted skies appear much darker, and the contrast between object and sky is improved significantly.

Enhances All Objects

This contrast-enhancement effect is particularly apparent on nebulae. Unlike stars, emission nebulae give off light in a very narrow range of wavelengths. SkyGlow filters allow maximum transmission of the important wavelengths of hydrogen-alpha, hydrogen-beta, and doubly ionized oxygen-the ones most commonly emitted by nebulae. Views of galaxies and star clusters are also enhanced, although not as much.

Why suffer under light-polluted skies any longer? Order your SkyGlow light-pollution filter today. It really works!
