The CLS (City Light Suppression) broadband filter was developed to improve the visibility of a range of deep sky objects
This is achieved by reducing the transmission of some of the wavelengths involved in light pollution. In particular, those produced by artificial lighting such as mercury vapour lamps. But also by the blocking the light from sodium vapour lamps and the unwanted 'sky glow' effect. As well as being highly transparent to the main nebula emission lines at OIII (496nm and 500nm), H-beta (486nm), NII (654nm and 658nm), H-alpha (656nm) and SII (672nm), the filter is also suitable for improving contrast and detail, for both visual and photographic astronomy, away from rural areas with high levels of light pollution.
- in cell for insertion into Canon EOS cameras with full-frame sensor
Warning: The filter can only be used with the EOS 6D, EOS 5D, EOS5D II and EOS 5DIII ! Newer models (EOS 6D II, EOS 5D IV) can not be used with this filter! The Filter stops the usual movement of the flip mirror. This causes camera malfuction with EOS 6D II and EOS 5D IV.
- Suitable for colour CCD cameras and unmodified DSLRs
- CLS with a wider pass band than a UHC filter, making it suitable for observing under modest to moderate light pollution
- Light pollution filters do not completely eliminate the effects of light pollution or increase the brightness of astronomical objects. However, they increase the contrast between nebula and the night sky in many cases without brightening the nebula.
Please note that this filter must never be used as the only solar filter!
