Antlia SII 3.5nm Ultra-Narrowband Filter - Mounted in 1.25" Filter Cell (31.8mm)

The Antlia SII 3.5nm filter is suitable for imaging SII emissions from nebulae, planetary nebulae and supernova remnants.
The 3.5nm bandwidth delivers a high transmission at a center wavelength of 671.6nm. The extreme narrowness in bandwidth enables astro-imaging from heavily light polluted locations and delivers improved contrast at darker sites. The filter effectively suppresses interference from other wavelengths, especially artificial mercury and sodium lamps.
Antlia narrowband filters are designed to bring out the faintest features in nebulosity by reducing the unwanted background frequencies. The narrower the filter, the better. Our SII filter is designed to deliver 90 % transmission at the 671.6nm line. The out of band blocking specification is rated OD3 (0.1%) which delivers an excellent signal to noise ratio and effective cut off rate to minimize interference from other wavelengths.
A sharp cut off rate is a very important performance index since it is designed to sharply attenuate off-band wavelengths. The result is that the Antlia SII filter delivers excellent contrast with extremely dark backgrounds whilst delivering a high transmission of the SII signal. The sharp cut-off also minimizes the effect of halos around bright stars.
In the production process, we use very strict quality control standards. Each filter is individually tested and scanned to ensure that the product meets our high-performance parameters. Our exacting attention to tolerances requires each substrate to have a uniform thickness that achieves no more + -0.05mm deviation from specification.

Application and Performance:

  • Ultra-narrow 3.5 nm bandwidths, designed for astronomy imaging in both light polluted areas and at dark sites;
  • Suitable for imaging of SII emission in nebulae, planetary nebulae and supernova remnants;
  • With the Ha, SII, OIII set of filters you are able to process your images to achieve the impressive Hubble color palette;
  • High transmission of typically 90% and sharp cut-off delivers an excellent boost in contrast for SII emitting objects;
  • All Antlia Narrowband filters are edge blackened to minimize interference from stray light;
  • This filter is not suited to deep sky objects that do not contain SII emissions. It can be used to image SII regions in galaxies and such images can be combined into LRGB images to better highlight the SII emitting regions of galaxies.
