The Baader Neodymium filter is a general purpose contrast filter for Lunar and Planetary observation and also helps reduce light pollution from Sodium lamps.
- The best visual and photographic filter for contrast enhancement for all telescopes, without loss of image brightness!
- The effect of the element Neodymium as filter material is very impressive. When added to optical glass, it enhances contrast, enhances the red colour in the image (especially with Mars and Jupiter) and it darkens the spectral region which is particularly marked by Sodium street lights, which is a big contributor to “Skyglow” in many areas.
- Planoptically polished and MC-coated – with IR-cut coatings!, without any loss of sharpness as a single filter in front of a binocular or be used for afocal projection with digital cameras (far from the focal point!)
- The IR spectral range is blocked making stars much sharper when used with DSLRs.
- The Baader Moon & Skyglow Neodymium Filter is two filters in one: Neodymium contrast enhancement filter and UV/IR blocker.
It also absorbs light pollution from low pressure Sodium lighting, but it’s less effective with high pressure (pinkish) Sodium lighting where the Astronomik CLS filter is more effective.
