SII filter: The narrowband S-II 7nm filter passes light at 672nm wavelength with a bandpass of 3nm which is designed for nebula fotography.

It is suitable for most emission nebulae, planetary nebulae and supernova remnants.

f you want the look of Hubble Space Telescope (HST) images, such as the famous “Pillars of Creation” (the Eagle Nebula, Messier 16), then the next filter to consider adding to your collection after H-a and OIII is the SII (es-two) or sulfur filter. The SII filter, like H-a, is a deep red filter near 672 nm. H-a, OIII and SII filters provide that Hubble look for many emission nebula. Again, tri-color narrowband imaging with these three filters can be done with the moon up, so your equipment is not sitting dormant for several weeks.

Extra narrowband SII-CCD 6.5nm filter (Sulful II for CCD) is designed for nebula observation allowing 12nm bandwidth of light centered on a wavelength of 672nm through, and reducing the transmission of certain wavelengths of light, specifically those produced by artificial light including mercury vapor, and both high and low pressure sodium vapor lights and the unwanted natural light caused by neutral oxygen emission in our atmosphere (i.e. skyglow).
