Optolong L-PRO Maximum Luminosity Filter for Canon EOS-R Cameras

The Optolong L-Pro (L-Professional) EOS-R Clip filter is a unique and fantastic filter that has been designed to provide maximum luminosity of the spectrum other than those areas caused by light pollution...

Most light pollution filters would also cut off those wavelengths caused by light pollution, but those filters would cut off usually much more than that and thus reducing the overall transmission of the filter. This filter is more expensive than general ligth pollution filters, because it is much more difficult to create a filter with maximum illumination thta would still deal with light pollution.

This version is compatible with Canon EOS-R Full Frame cameras.

It improves the visibility of various deepsky objects by selectively reducing the transmission of wavelengths of light pollutants, specifically those produced by artificial lightings including mercury vapor lamps, both high & low pressure sodium vapor lights and the unwanted natural light caused by neutral oxygen emission in our atmosphere (i.e. skyglow). As this filter is highly transparent in main nebula emission lines at  OIII (496nm and 500nm), H-beta (486nm), NII (654nm and 658nm), H-alpha (656nm) as well as SII (672nm), the filter is suitable for enhancing the contrast and details for both visual and photograghic purpose at sub-rural area with heavy  light pollution.
Unlike other light pollution filter UHC and CLS, L-Pro is multi-bandpass filter which offers better color balance by maximizing the transmission band. The balanced transmission allows astrophotos to be taken with minimal color cast to broadband emission objects such as galaxies, reflection nebulae and globular star clusters. L-Pro is the best choice for light pollution suppression.

By providing maximum luminosity it reduces exposure time that is an important factor in deep sky imaging.


Main Use and Performance

Suitable for visual observation and astrophotography. The optolong L-Pro filter has a very low transmission reduction rate against continuous spectrum space objects, and thus is quite effective in suppressing light pollution sources when shooting galaxies, reflection nebulae and globular star clusters. The same holds true for visual star observations. The L-Pro filter alone can suppress infrared wavelength, and thus can be used at ease for “L” (luminosity) image shootings with CCD cameras. Please note that light pollution filters do not completely eliminate the effects of light pollution and definitely do not increase the object’s brightness, however they increase the contrast between nebula and night sky by making the background darker.


Optolong filters are not designed for solar observation. DO NOT LOOK AT THE SUN WITH ANY OPTOLONG FILTER as permanent eye damage will be the result.

  Installation and Removing Instructions

More Explanation of EOS-R L-Pro Clip 

Due to the particularity of Canon R series micro-single optical path, aperture design and light incident Angle, slight dark angle interference will occur when using interference filter for imaging.

There are two solutions to solve peripheral interference phenomenon:

1>Cut out the interference areas of pictures.

2>By post processing via RAW (attach video tutorials).
