About the Manufacturer
Since its inception almost 4 decades ago, Lumicon has always remained the pioneers, the innovators and the leader in the development and manufacturing of observational and photographic filters and accessories for astronomy, telescopes and related astro equipment.
Over the years, their specialized team of astrophysicists, optical and mechanical engineers, professional astronomers and astro-photographers invented, perfected and introduced to the astronomy community the most revered, popular and sought after filters; including the first anti-light pollution filter on the market, the Deep Sky Filter, as well as the often imitated, yet never matched, Oxygen III Filter, the Ultra High Contrast (UHC) Filter, the Hydrogen-Beta Filter and the Comet Filter. All of Lumicon's nebula and light pollution filters are individually tested, approved and proudly inscribed with the percentage of light transmittance of their primary emission lines. Lumicon prides itself on making these filters in the USA and not in China or overseas like most of their competitors.
