Baader ultra narrow band o3 filter

Recommended Posts

I have the 36mm versions of these filters and am desperate to have a go with them. Unfortunately my efforts have been delayed somewhat by dropping  my scope fully laden with camera, filters etc  😫. Luckily not much damage done although the focuser got damaged on my leg (so did my leg!).  Cue much shamefaced embarrassment at work though ... astro-dark will have gone by the time the moon has so should be interesting trying them in astro-twilight..

Ouch James that sounds painful all ways, hope your leg isn't badly hurt and gets better soon.

A bit surprised that Baader doesn't have the likely most popular size in stock, but will be very interested to see how the [OIII] in particular copes with astro twilight, as that's the one most usually affected.

I'd be interested in a set for my old filter wheel that's full of original Baader filters complete with O111 haloes, according to Baaders gushing preview on their site the new filters are the bees knees and produced to highest spec in a new state of the art facility so probably why they're slow in appearing, let's hope it's because they're insisting on good QC.

Since the Astrodon takeover the new owners have increased prices exponentially so won't be buying any more of those :grin:

Depends really as astro twilight can actually be of lesser effect than the local light pollution in some cases.
