The Chroma 8nm SII filter isolates the spectral emission of singly ionized sulfur atoms, also common in nebulae. Emission is at two lines occurring as a doublet, at 671.6 and 673.1 nm. This filter also separates sulfur emission from H-alpha emission (656.3nm).
All transmission and blocking (OD) data are actual, measured spectra of representative production lots. Spectra varies slightly from lot to lot. Optical density values in excess of 6 may appear noisy because such evaluations push the resolution limit of low light level measurements.
