Lumicon Comet Band Filter
The Lumicon Comet Filter, a narrow bandpass system (25nm), isolates the 501nm OIII line and both Cyanogen lines at 511nm and 514nm. The high contrast gain of the filter reveals the delicate ionized tail of gaseous comets, allowing you to see their full extent. The Comet Filter also helps you to better distinguish gaseous comets from dusty comets which normally show little contrast gain.
Howard Brewington, famed comet discoverer, says: "I discovered Comet Aarseth-Brewington, 1989a1, using the Lumicon Comet Filter. The filter doubled the contrast, making the comet very easy to spot." Why make comet-hunting harder than it needs to be?
To ensure that your Lumicon filter remains the World's Best, the strictest quality control standards are employed throughout the production process. Each Lumicon Comet Filter is individually inspected and proudly inscribed with the percentage of light transmittance of the primary emission lines.
