New Nebula Booster – NB2 and NB3

IDAS is still moving forward. Following to NB1 released in January, IDAS announced other new nebula boosters – NB2 and NB3 today. They will come in stock at Hutech early of next month. Key concept for these filters are to separate between Ha/NII and SII, and to isolate OIII from Hb while still considering Bayered color sensors. So you will have more options for tri-color imaging with OSC cameras while changing filter combinations.

Features are

  • NB2 : for boosting Ha/NII and OIIINB2+NGS1_Chart
  • NB3 : for boosting SII and OIIINB3+NGS1_Chart
  • ODW : Full spectrum filter (AR-coated clear filter) for par-focal with NB2/3 and optimizing for the optics’s designated distance, and for broadband imaging to create the fundamental color balanceNBODW+NGS1_chart
  • NB2 and 3 are to be used with a base-filter all the time. NGS-1 is most optimized with among IDAS filters currently available. I will describe more details later.

So what we can do, for example, is;

0424a

Blending the regular broadband RGB with high contrast Ha color, OIII or SII. Same things for nebulae too.

How can we set filters?

OSCNB2+NGS1+FBOX

Optimized filter boxes for ZWO and QHY are available at Hutech.

0424b

Canon R and RP (This system allows to use wide-angle EF lenses while still electrically controlled)

NB2+EFRF-MFF-R+R

 

Initially the system might look complicated for you. I will write up little by little. This is just preliminary announcement today. As the marketing term, this can be described as the double-stacking filter system in short.

Anyway, I’m sure this filter system will give us more fun and new level of quality for OSC imaging.
