Sky-watcher 1.25 Inch Light Pollution Filter
The Sky-Watcher 1.25 Inch Light Pollution Filter is a contrast-enhancing anodized aluminium, optical glass filter designed to block out the wavelengths of light emitted by mercury-vapour light and other common causes of light pollution, whilst providing 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. This contrast-enhancement effect is particularly apparent on nebulae. Unlike stars, emission nebulae give off light in a very narrow range of wavelengths.
