Eyepiece Accessories and Filters
This filter blocks night glow and airglow, sodium and mercury emissions (but not UV or IV). This versatile broadband filter is suitable for all objects, whether you are viewing them with your eyes, or capturing them with your camera. Suitable for visual observations and for CCD photography. Threaded to fit standard 1.25” eyepieces.
The Sky-Watcher 2 Inch Light Pollution Filter is a contrast-enhancing anodised aluminium, optical glass filter designed to block out the wavelengths of light emitted by mercury-vapour light and other common causes of light pollution, whilst providing higher transmission at critical hydrogen-alpha and hydrogen-beta lines than competing filters. Bright, light-polluted
The Baader contrast filter booster will help sharpen up your stellar images, boosting contrast, emphasising lunar, Martian and Jovian surface details and cutting down on visible light pollution. The filter is especially useful in economy refractor telescopes, where it can aid in the correction of colour aberration.
Experience unrivalled views of our nearest star with one of these fantastic solar filters. These fully-mounted filters are far safer and easier to use than 'solar film' as they are mounted in a frame which is securely attached over the end of your telescope or camera lens via thumb-screws. This not only means that the filter can be quickly and easily attached
The Altair Lightwave 12mm Premium Long Eye Relief features a flat, well corrected and wide 68 degrees apparent field of view. The user can enjoy expansive views of the Moon, planets and deep sky objects thanks to the 12mm focal length of the eyepiece. This is a very comfortable piece of equipment and the 20mm long eye relief allows the user to position
The Baader Hyperion Eyepiece T-Adapter enables you to attach cameras fitted with T-rings to Baader Hyperion eyepieces for eyepiece projection photography. It is suitable for use with Baader eyepieces with a 43mm thread - such as Hyperion fixed focal length eyepieces and the Mk III 8-24mm zoom eyepiece (but not the Mk II zoom eyepiece) - attaching to the
This combination focal reducer and field corrector lens makes it possible to have a dual focal ratio instrument, without sacrificing image quality.If offers wide fields of view with any Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope and when used for astrophotography, it reduces exposure time by a factor of 3.
Baader Solar Filters provide a professional and secure solution to observe and image the Sun using AstroSolar Safety Film. Many ready-made filters stretch the filter material like a drumhead in order to make it look like a piece of glass – this absolutely destroys the image quality, rendering the film useless for high magnification work. AstroSolar film
The Sky-Watcher 1.25 Inch O-III Narrowband Filter narrowband filter is specially designed for the observation of gas and planetary nebulae. It distinguishes different contrasts of the wavelengths of light that pass through, giving ideal conditions for the observation of faint super nova remnants and planetary remnants.
The Skywatcher 2 Inch Variable Polarising Filter is a high quality anodised aluminium, optical glass variable polarising filter designed to reduce the amount of light entering your eyepiece. You can progressively dim the view when observing a bright object, such as the Moon or certain planets, to a level according to your needs, whilst increasing contrast,
The mirrors inside these diagonals have undergone a special high-reflectivity multi-coating process, allowing them to reflect 99% of the precious gathered starlight, providing exceptional brightness and contrast (Standard diagonals typically reflect 90-95% of light).
The Sky-Watcher 1.25 Inch Ultra High Contrast (UHC) Filter is the best all-around dark-sky nebula filter. This filter permits superb views of objects like the Orion, Lagoon, Swan and other extended nebulae. It performs well in smaller aperture instruments owing to its greater light transmission than the O-III, yet still suppresses light pollution well.
