Hoya 55mm Starscape Filter

Designed for night scape photography, the HOYA STARSCAPE filter reduces light pollution generated by artificial lights common in cities. The HOYA STARSCAPE cuts light transmission in the area of the spectrum that is usually associated with light pollution from Sodium and Mercury-vapor lights common to most cities world-wide. Thus, the filter provides a more clear image with natural colours and improved contrast in the night sky.

The filter cuts off in the most natural way the transmission of light spectrum that is frequently presented in city environments and usually associated with Sodium and Mercury-vapor lights.

Other similar filters that cut light pollution by special glass coating can produce color shift especially when used with wide or super wide angle lenses. The HOYA STARSCAPE filter achieves the same result by using a special glass formula, thus no color shift occurs even at wide or super wide angles.

The main genre of utilization of the HOYA STARSCAPE filter is night landscape where the ground and sky are positioned in one composition. The natural colors the sky are truthfully reproduced while other objects left unaffected.

The HOYA STARSCAPE filter is quite helpful in time lapse shooting. By cutting light pollution directly during the shooting process, the amount of time necessary in post processing will be significantly reduced.

The combination of HOYA STARSCAPE and SOFTON-A will allow to enhance even more the bright stars in the night sky, thus making the image more impressive and attractive.

Precautions

  1. Light pollution cut filter HOYA STARSCAPE does not cut 100% of light coming from Sodium and Mercury-vapor lights.

  2. Polluted light is a mixture of different unwanted light spectrums. HOYA STARSCAPE filter cannot cut all the polluted light spectrums.
