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.

Optolong L enhance filter

Certainly makes a difference in bringing out the fainter details in DSO's compared to no filter or my UHC filter. Have to say Elena answered my stock query at lightening speed and it was marked as dispatched within minutes of ordering. Top quality service.
