Description Technical Specs Extended Information
Baader Planetarium Moon & Skyglow (Neodymium) filter--cuts light from streetlights & lunar skyglow. Leaves colors intact & enhanced for high contrast planetary views.1.25"
  •  Selective contrast enhancing filter, especially
  • suitable for all reflector type telescopes and
  • true Apochromates. (Economy refractor owners
  • might consider the Contrast-Booster Filter
  • instead, featuring an additional dielectric UVblocker,
  • to eliminate the unfocused blue part of
  • the spectrum.)
  •  Transmitts a maximum of light (– after all LIGHT
  • is “the hottest commodity” in this astronomy
  • business...), while blocking unwanted skyglow
  • and many street light emissions.
  •  Especially effective on small economy telescopes
  • which cannot benefit from expensive narrowband
  • nebula filters due to the huge light-loss
  • involved.
  •  Unique selective blocking feature of the
  • NEODYMIUM element greatly reduces glare,
  • without reducing recognition of important color
  • and brightness variations.
  •  Transmission within the selected wave bands
  • exceeds 95%.
  •  Fits all standard filter threads,
  •  Longs to be combined with an UV/IR-Cut-Filter
  • for all CCD and digital camera work.
  • This combination works extremely well
  • due to cutting all unfocused light – an absolute
  • MUST for digital imaging.
  •  Planeoptically polished! Retains full image
  • resolution – even at highest magnification, way
  • above 200 times, or during eyepiece projection
  • work – even in front of a binocular viewer.
  •  Ultrahard and durable Ion-beam hardened
  • coatings, may be cleaned anytime without fear.
  •  No image degradation as with ”flame polished”
  • filters.
  •  Available in 11⁄4“ and 2“ size at very affordable
  • price.
  •  Non-vignetting filter cells, larger in aperture than
  • any competing design, featuring a CNC milled
  • “crown” for ease of handling and attachment.
