Optolong L-eNhance Light Pollution Triple-Bandpass Narrowband Imaging Filter
The Optolong L-eNhance 2" filter is a triple-bandpass narrowband filter designed for light polluted skies to maximise the output from your imaging time.
Please note, we originally called it a Dual-bandpass filter as it lets through the light in two sections (bands), however, to distinguish between the L-eNhance and the latest L-eXtreme filters, we had to rename this filter. Both filters have two bands, but the L-eNhance lets through light of three important emission light sources, whilst the L-eXtreme focuses on two important emission light sources only, hence the change of title for the L-eNhance filter.
The relentless spread of urbanization and its associated light pollution have become a growing problem for all amateurs and astro photographers. The current solutions to the problem can be expensive and might include the purchase of a monochrome camera, several types of narrowband filters and a filter wheel.
L-eNhance provides an economical and practical solution for amateurs. It is a dual-band pass filter which has been designed for DSLR (digital SLR), color CMOS and CCD cameras. The convenience and cost effectiveness of this filter allows amateurs to image a rich selection of astronomical images, even in bright, heavily light-polluted areas.
Optolong believes the design of our L-eNhance filter is a technical innovation among filters. It effectively isolates the H-Alpha, H-Beta, and Oxygen III nebula emission lines and achieves a maximum transmission of up to 90%. The performance of this filter delivers images that superbly control the impact from light polluted skies.
