  • The fringe killer blocks defocused light in the blue spectrum, as well as in the red part of the spectrum (IR) above 700nm, usually seen in small achromat telescopes.
  • The smaller details on craters of the Moon and planetary surfaces are so much more visible!
  • Planeoptically polished; can be used well before the focal point of the optical system, without any loss of sharpness, as a single filter in front of a binocular for afocal projection with digital cameras.
  • Provides the brightest picture of all industrially manufactured colour error-correction systems. Thus, the Fringe-Killer is a must for small refractors!
  • Fringe Killer with Celestron 11" Edge HD reducer. Blue fringe reduction - not just for refractors: Celestron Edge + Reducer - some experiences and experiments

I hav e a vixen 140SS with lots of chromatic aberration when using my asi2600mm with colour wheel. My questions are 1) can I use this in front of my filter wheel and using the RBG filters? 2) Would a good quality set of RGB filter do a better job than my ZWO filters?

Does this filter have a positive function with a 127/1200 achromatic telescope in a herschel wedge visual/photographic usage ? If yes, should it be directly screwed on the eyepiece/camera or stacking ND and solar continuum on the wedge is fine?

1¼" and 2" Baader Fringe-Killer Color Correction-Filter

Planeoptically polished with Phantom Group Coating

Baader Fringe Killer
Baader Fringe Killer

The Fringe-Killer (Fringe = colour fringing) blocks unfocused light in the red part of the spectrum (IR) uo to 100% - but above all suppresses over 50% of the interfering stray light in the blue spectral range - without changing the colour impression of the image.

The most delicate details of lunar craters and planetary surfaces can be seen with a much higher contrast.

The Baader Fringe-Killer Color Correction-Filter prevents unwanted colour fringes in both the blue spectral range and in the NIR above 700 nm! The visual impact initially corresponds to a minus violet filter, as opposed to this but the image colour remains broadly balanced. In itself a contradiction in terms? It can only be implemented by applying modern DWDM plasma assisted coating technology, which allows the application of approximately 100 individual layers on a flat-optically polished face surface perfectly and reproducibly without compromising visual quality. This fine optical precision tool also allows inexpensive China-refractors to reach the promised imaging performance. The reduction of chromatic aberration corresponds to what is achieved by corrections-lens systems, which usually cost 20 times more.

The Baader Fringe Killer Overview

Facts and Figures
  • Is due to its construction both visually and photographically a very valuable aid
  • Removes blue fringing as well as red fringing above 700nm.
  • Forms in the range between 450 to 480 nm with a plateau at around 50% transmission rate, the coating becomes more complex to produce than even the narrowest Nebula filters.
  • Achieved in the passband the highest transmission of all previously available colour fringe, whether filter or correction lens. From 486-656 nm all relevant deep sky wavelengths are completely transmitted. Visually this is enough light for even high magnifications.
  • Above of 656 nm (H-alpha), at 660nm, the transmission sinks very fast. In the NIR at 670nm, transmission is already down to 50%, and at 690nm it is already close to zero. The NIR is fully blocked up to 1150nm. This way, details on planets are shown much clearer when using CCD/CMOS-cameras, too.

The Highlights of the Baader Fringe Killer Color Correction-Filter
  • Provides the brightest image of all industrially produced colour error correction systems. Thus the Fringe Killer is a must for even the smallest telescopes.
  • Removes blue fringing as well as red fringing above 700nm.
  • Cancels the devastating intensity of the disturbing purple fringing in a new form, which was never implemented to date in astronomical filters
  • Even weak nuances remain clearly visible in the planet due to the excellent colour balance.
  • In conjunction with an RG-610 Red Filter produces a narrowband Ha-pass filter with an only 70 nm wide windows and 95% light transmission - at an incredibly low price!
  • The combination with the Neodymium Skyglow Filter (with Phantom-Group-Coating) results in a balanced, breathtaking contrast to the observation of fine lunar and planetary details.
  • Planeoptically polished for perfect sharpness, even when the filter is assembled well before the focal point (or binocular digital camera insert).
  • No deterioration of resolution with high magnification - as would happen with flame-polished (raw polished) glass, commonly used for all sorts of filters!
  • Hight Quality Coating: Plasma-enhanced dielectric coatings result in hard, scratch-resistant and waterproof filters. Almost 50 layers on either side, carefully positioned as not to impair the optical quality of the substrate surface
  • Makes the performance of a simple f/8 economy refractor look like a classic f/15 Fraunhofer achromat. See it to believe it!

Bin voll und ganz zufrieden !
Benutze den Filter in einer 2" Version an meinem neuen EVOSTAR 102/1000mm Refraktor.
Das beigefügte Foto entstand mit einer ZWO ASI585MC am Abend des 14.Mai 2024 bei recht guten Seeing.
