IDAS HEUIB-II Filter


  • 18900

This item is out of stock but you can place an order now and we’ll ship when it becomes available.


The IDAS HEUIB-II (H-alpha Enhanced UIBlocking) filter is designed for enhanced spectrum DSLR's and one-shot color CCD astronomical cameras.

Besides removing the IR and UV ends of the spectrum which are often out of focus in refractive optics, it isolates the common H-alpha line relative to the surrounding extreme red end of the spectrum, making it easy to bring out the faint H-alpha emission nebulosity of astronomical photos, yet retain the background color balance of broadband photos.

Some comparison shots taken with the enhanced Canon 6DH (standard Canon UV/IR blocking filter vs. HEUIB-II filter) show a clear difference both in background sky color balance and contrast of H-alpha nebulosity in the extremely faint object IC1396. Note the good background color balance as shown in the histograms of the individual color channels of the HEUIB-II filtered image.

A wide shot of the Milky Way clearly shows enhanced contrast of H-alpha regions.

 

The HEUIB-II filter also returns normal daylight color balance to spectrum-enhanced cameras as can be seen in this photo below taken with normal DSLR auto-white-balance (AWB) enabled.
