Description

Baader has released the New CMOS-Optimized filters and are expected in stock at the end of July. Please contact us for further info. Be sure to read more in our blog at https://alpineastro.com/blogs/news/cmos-filters 

  • Baader H-alpha / O-III / S-II f / 2 Highspeed Filter Set - Precision Grade
  • 6.5 nm FWHM, recommended for extremely fast optical systems from f / 3.4 to f / 1.8
  • Specially designed for the special filter requirements when used with fast optics like the Celestron RASA astrographs
  • Reflex-Blocker ™ hard coated and planoptically polished - with sealed coating edges ( Life-Coat ™ )
  • Blackened edges all around, with filter-lead-side-indicator in the form of a black frontside outer rim
  • Optimized for modern CMOS cameras, but excellent for CCD camera technologies

The new generation of Baader CMOS-optimized filters features:

  • CMOS-Optimized Baader Filter
  • Increased contrast
  • Ever more narrow passbands
  • Reflex-Blocker™ coatings, for largest ever freedom from halos, even under most adverse conditions concerning aux-optics
  • FWHM on each filter category carefully designed to allow for 1:1:1 exposures, matched for typical CMOS quantum efficiency and s/n ratio
  • Identical filter thickness to existing standards, with utmost care for parfocality
  • Blackened edges all around, with filter-lead-side-indicator in the form of a black frontside outer rim, to additionally eliminate any reflection due to light falling onto the edge of a filter
  • Each filter coated individually, with sealed coating edge (NOT cut out of a larger plate with coatings left exposed read more)
  • Life-Coat™: evermore hard coatings to enable a non-aging coating for life – even in a most adverse environment

Limited-Lifetime-Warranty for CMOS-optimized Baader filters

A Baader Planetarium exclusive. Filters incorporating Baader Planetarium’s Life-Coat™ technology are so durable that Baader Planetarium warrants the coatings for the life of the filter. Baader Planetarium has developed Life-Coat™ using materials and processes that result in coatings which will not degrade or fail for a lifetime. Life-Coat™ coatings resist moisture, temperature extremes, and are hardened to withstand normal cleanings.

Baader Planetarium guarantees their Life-Coat™ coatings will not peel, flake or physically degrade and will withstand repeated cleaning with fine optical cleaning equipment. The Limited Lifetime Warranty applies to the original purchaser and does not cover failure from mis-use, physical damage through improper handling, or improper cleaning.
