The relentless spread of urbanization and its associated light pollution have become a growing problem for all amateurs and astro photographers. The current solutions to the problem can be expensive and might include the purchase of a monochrome camera, several types of narrowband filters and a filter wheel.

L-eNhance provides an economical and practical solution for amateurs. It is a triple-band pass filter which has been designed for DSLR (digital SLR), colour CMOS and CCD cameras. The convenience and cost effectiveness of this filter allows amateurs to image a rich selection of astronomical images, even in bright, heavily light-polluted areas.

Optolong believes the design of our L-eNhance filter is a technical innovation among filters. It effectively isolates the H-Alpha, H-Beta, and Oxygen III nebula emission lines and achieves a maximum transmission of up to 90%. The performance of this filter delivers images that superbly control the impact from light polluted skies.

Optolong L-enhance filter

After a simple red structure transformation, the effect of SHO Hubble colour can also be simulated. Compared with the previous narrow band filters of Ha, SII and OIII, the L-eNhance filter is a good substitution. This one filter is multi-purpose and worth having!
