The relentless spread or urbanization and its associated light pollution have become a growing problem for all amateur 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.


The Optolong L-Enhance provides an economical and practical solution to this. It is a Tri-band pass filter which has been designed for DSLR (digital SLR), colour CMOS and monochrome 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. 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.


Astrograph recommend this filter mainly for use with one shot colour (OSC) cameras. The filter has a broad coverage of H-Beta and OIII which means it will pass light to both the Green and Blue filtered photosites of a colour camera. Red is obviously covered by the H-Alpha bandpass. All other wavelengths are effectively blocked allowing far higher signal to noise than traditional light pollution filters.
