Just broke the bank - Astrodon 3nm Ha

Recommended Posts

Damn you Astrosweden for having a Black Friday sale!! :D

I had previously told myself that I could never justify the cost of 3nm Astrodon even if they are great. But how can I resist when they are half price? 

355 Euros for a 1.25" 3nm Astrodon Ha-filter was just too good to miss. NO more Christmas gifts for me now...

Are they made from Unobtainium !!!!???.... almost worth hooking up the PST and increasing the exposure time  by about 5000x's.

Hope you have enough coin left to celebrate Chrimble with a drink......  maybe a cheeky 1787 Chateau Lafite....

I totally blame @ollypenrice, @swag72 and the rest of the "heavy hitters" for making me want this filter and therefore now being broke :D

Now be fair, the blame lies fairly and squarely with Don Goldman!!! :icon_mrgreen:

      Selling my LRGB filters 36mm unmounted , because I decided to use only my Narrowband and to invest in something else that I want.
      The filters are placed inside my Atik EFW2 at the moment but I can send photos if someone is really interested , so I don't loose my cc'd setup position.
      Are in excellent condition ,sold in their original boxes.
      The filters are well known so not much words need to say.
      Some info you can find here at Astrodons site:
      https://astrodon.com/products/astrodon-lrgb-gen2-e-series-tru-balance-filters/
      The retail price is about £800 if I am not mistaken I will sell it for £500..............£375
      Other offers can be accepted within reasonable price 😀
      Payment via PAYPAL is accepted, buyer pays the fees.
      I post them from Athens Greece in A class shipment secured.
      I will pay the postage expenses.
      Thank you,
      Nikolas.

      This has been my project since the start of this season and now I think I´ll just leave it... for now 😉
      I started last season (with a longer FL) but didn´t like how my Baader O3 filter matched the Astrodon Ha filter, so now I had to get a 3nm O3 as well.
      This is a total of:
      60*5 minutes of 3nm Ha
      114*5 minutes of 3nm O3.

      Shot with a ZWO ASI1600MM-Cool and a Canon 300/4L IS tele lens. The lens suffers from bad star shapes in the corners but I managed to get it decent anyway. Didn´t want to stop it down from f/4 either.
      Combined as a semi-RGB (or what to call it) from R=Ha, G=70%O3+30%Ha, B=O3. Processed it as LRGB using a combined Lum from 60% Ha L and 40% O3 L.
      I am really happy that I finally feel satisfied with a target! Usually I just get restless and move on when half of the data is collected.
      Hope you like it!
