e-line Filters for Ultra Micro Nikkor Lenses

A glass filter is in this small wooden box.
That's a special designed filter for Ultra Micro Nikkor lenses.

e-line Filters for Ultra Micro Nikkor Lenses

e-line filters

These filters have been specially designed to develop the performance of Ultra-Micro-Nikkor lenses to the fullest extent.
They consist of two separate filter glasses, each with differing wavelength transmission factors, but bonded together and responsive to the wavelengths of the photo-sensitizer.
In addition they are light-discriminatory, transmitting only that very narrow range of light around the e-line.
They planes feature perfect flatness and parallelism and will detract in no way from the ultimate excellent resolving power of any Ultra-Micro-Nikkor lens to which they are attached.
