Hoya Starscape Filter 62mm

Designed for nightscape photography, the Starscape filter reduces light pollution generated by artificial lights common in cities.

Hoya's Starscape filter 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 city environments world-wide. This provides a more clear image with natural colours and improved contrast in the night sky.

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

The main genre use for the Starscape filter is night landscape where the ground and sky are positioned in one composition. The natural colours of the sky are truthfully reproduced while other objects are left unaffected. The Starscape filter is also 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.
