Designed for night scape photography, the HOYA STARSCAPE filter reduces light pollution generated by artificial lights common in cities.
To capture flawing Milky Way and tons of shining stars in the night sky that usually cannot be seen by naked eye has been an attractive genre for the photographers. But with the great progress of digital DSLR and mirrorless camera sensors and optical performance of the lens, night sky shooting is becoming a piece of cake even for amateur photographers. As a photographic filter manufacturer HOYA is moving forward to provide the best tools for Night Photography.
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 colors 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 light pollution cut filter on wide angle lens
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.
HOYA STARSCAPE filter is effective when shooting Aurora Borealis. The green light patterns on the northern night sky are enhanced by the cutting of light pollution that is generated from the close urban areas.
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 HOYA STARSCAPE filter significantly reduces the time necessary to correct color cast generated by the city lights in RAW post processing. The image rendered without applying the filter can appear degraded on pixel level.
