Light pollution filter to reduce the impact of city lights

In places with lots of light pollution, the sky is so bright that it drowns out the starlight, blurring it with the city lights. Kenko STARRY NIGHT filter allows you to capture the night sky clearly, as nature intended. It can also be used with wide-angle lenses, making it ideal for stargazing and night photography.

Cross filter to make the stars shine brightly

Let bright stars shine with a four or six-beams cross! General cross filters significantly lengthen beams from light sources, creating dense illuminations that lead to a strong and overloaded image, but The Kenko Twinkle Star series results in moderate light beams with an original manufacturing method.
