Product description Our SkyGlow is an advanced multilayer interference filter
designed to enhance deep-sky observing in moderately light-polluted skies. It
blocks the most common wavelengths of light pollution - predominantly produced
by mercury vapor lamps - and allows higher transmission of critical hydrogen-
alpha and hydrogen-beta lines. Bright, light-polluted skies appear much darker
in the field of view and contrast significantly enhanced, particularly
emission nebulas like the Orion and Lagoon. Views of galaxies and clusters are
also improved. From the Manufacturer For observers viewing through a telescope
