Aurora Flatfield Panel D160mm, with 12V Inverter
We are now offering the highest quality flat field panels available on the market, supplied by Gerd Neumann Jr., the manufacturer of the famous Astronomik filters.
Flat Field panels are being used to achieve a flat, equally illuminated field in photography in general, but especially here the main fields of application are astro photography and spectroscopy, therefore we supply flatfield panels suitable for use with telescopes of various sizes.
The Aurora Flatfield Panels are mounted in a rigid frame consisting of virtually unbreakable plastic with an extra protection around the edge so your Aurora is very well protected during transport and travel. The opaque front plate gives you a more uniform brightness than the EL material alone. For very fast optical systems, you will likely need to reduce the brightness by placing some sheets of paper in front of the EL sheet and the frame of the Aurora will keep them secure.
Benefits of the Aurora Flatfield Panels (over other similar devices)
- A perfectly (evenly) illuminated surface
- A broad, continuous spectrum which may be used with emission line filters
- Lightweight and easy to handle inverter for 12V and 110/240V available - suited for both stationary and mobile use.
Please note, image is for demonstration purposes only. Currently it shows it with incorrect power connector. The current stock comes with a cigarette lighter-type plug, so you can use it with a power tank or jump starter or other power source that provides that kind of socket.
