Built for outdoor photographers.


Artificial light pollution ranges between 570 to 610 nanometers on the visible light spectrum. Artificial light pollution can reduce starlight definition by up to 50%. The orange color cast decreases contrast between the stars and the space behind them, making an the otherwise black backdrop of space look orangish.

Eliminates light pollution

non-destructively.

Eliminating light pollution is essential to capturing beautiful Night Sky images, however finding a location to shoot without light pollution can be incredibly difficult if not impossible depending on where you’re shooting.

Eliminating light pollution in post-processing is a destructive type of editing, whereas with a Night Sky filter light pollution is eliminated non-destructively.

HOW TO CAPTURE BRIGHTER STARLIGHT

Sky darkness and light pollution are going to be the two most essential factors which determine how bright your starlight will be.

  • When the moon is at it’s brightest phase starlight can appear up to 50% less bright.
  • If strong light pollution exists starlight brightness can appear 50% less bright.
  • When moon brightness is at it’s highest level and there’s a high level of light pollution exists starlight can appear 100% less bright.
  • Little to no light pollution and a dark moon phase combined increases starlight brightness significantly.

A Night Sky filter works wonders by making the backdrop of space appear more black, making each individual star stand out more, significantly increasing starlight definition.
