A set of three narrowband filters with a half width of 7 nm. Narrowband filters do not eliminate the effect of light pollution and do not increase the brightness of objects - but in many cases they greatly increase the contrast between an object and the night sky in the background.
The kit includes a hydrogen filter (H-alpha band), oxygen filter (O-III) and sulfur filter (S-II). Together, they allow the observation and - above all - a color photograph of nebulae (emission, planetary nebulae, remnants of supernova explosions) even in conditions of the highest pollution with artificial light. Three SHO filters form the so-called Hubble palette (SHO assignment with respect to RGB channels: sulfur signal - S - falls into channel R, hydrogen signal - H - falls into channel G, and oxygen - O - is assigned to channel B ).
