Antlia OIII 3 nm Pro 50 mm is a professional astrophotographic filter transmitting light with a wavelength of 500.7 nm emitted by ionized oxygen atoms, the registration of which is particularly important when photographing emission nebulae.
Like other Antlia products, this filter is made with the highest care, which is confirmed by the results of surface quality tests carried out in accordance with the most stringent military standards. Moreover, thanks to a very narrow half-band width of only 3 nm, this filter combines the ability to almost completely eliminate the undesirable component from sodium and mercury lamps with high transmission ¶Ci ± for the spectral line OIII, one of the most important from the point of view of astrophotography.
Attention! The OIII filter is not recommended for visual observations. Under no circumstances should it be used as a filter for observing the sun!
