About Baader Planetarium FHBN-SQ50

The Baader Planetarium H-Beta 8.5 nm CCD Filter delivers the absolute highest contrast deep sky images in H-Alpha, H-Beta, Oxygen III and Sulfur-II, with the shortest exposures possible. Their ultra-narrow bandwidths have extremely high transmissions, while completely rejecting light pollution as well as the important blocking of longer wavelengths.

The high optical quality of the Baader narrowband filters guarantees no loss in sharpness or contrast. Each substrate is fine-optically polished plane parallel to deliver a smooth and accurate 1/4 wavefront over the entire surface. This special custom polishing operation sets Baader filters apart from the standard commercially precision polished filter substrates used by most other filter manufacturers.

In addition to their transmission properties, the Baader coatings were developed with another key goal in mind - eliminate the annoying reflections present in other narrowband astro-filters. To achieve this freedom from reflections, along with excellent out of band blocking, required careful design and testing of the coating stacks.

The anti-reflection coatings are designed to prevent halos and balanced to prevent physical deformation of the optically flat substrates. The ultra-hard ionbeam deposition ensures the coatings will never degrade from use or normal cleaning. Baader mil-spec coatings won't degrade, peel or flake off, unlike the coatings of filters that have been simply cut out of pre-coated sheets of glass. This cutting operation leaves the coating edges rough and torn which enables penetration of moisture between the coatings and substrate.

Baader Planetarium FHBN-SQ50 Features

  • True Optical Quality: Baader glass substrates are of true optical quality. Most other filters are merely made from raw flame-polished, "optically flat," or sometimes a top quality commercially polished filter glass (fine for camera filters)
  • Filter Durability: Filter durability has always been a hallmark of Baader Planetarium. The multi-layer dielectric coatings are plasma-assisted and Ionbeam-hardened using the latest technology (the coatings are harder than the glass substrate itself.)
  • Stackability: Unlike other filters, this Baader Planetarium filter is truly designed to be stacked and combined. This is possible due to the high optical quality and highly efficient anti-reflection multicoatings
