  • The Astronomik CLS Visual Light Pollution Filter is a high quality light pollution filter made specifically for filter wheels and selectors that call for a 50mm round unmounted filter.
  • Blocks the light of the spectral lines of mercury and sodium-vapor lamps and lets the largest part of the visible light and H-alpha emissions pass effectively removing the annoying orange glow created by urban lighting.
  • The Astronomik Visual CLS Light Pollution Filter is optimized for use with telescopes with a filter to telescope aperture ratio of 1:3 to 1:15.
  • All the important emission lines, as well as the spectral region that the very well dark adapted eye can see, can pass through the filter.

Astronomik Visual CLS Light Pollution Filter - 50mm Round Unmounted

The Astronomik Visual CLS is a light pollution filter for black & white and color imaging of nebulae, galaxies and star clusters.

The Astronomik Visual CLS blocks the light of the spectral lines of mercury and sodium-vapor lamps and lets the largest part of the visible light and H-alpha emissions pass. All the important emission lines, as well as the spectral region that the very well dark adapted eye can see, can pass through the filter.

The Visual filters are optimized for use with filter to telescope aperture ratios of 1:3 to 1:15. Staying within these ratios assures that all aberration and comma are avoided. The CLS filter is suitable for use with telescopes of all aperture sizes and even works well with binoculars.

The Astronomik Visual CLS Light Pollution Filter is good for use under both dark and urban skies for reducing light pollution made by mercury-vapor lamps. For film photography and modified DLSR use, the CLS filter gives good performance and near perfect color balance. While this filter does perform well with webcam and video equipment under light polluted skies, it is not suitable for planetary use.
