Marzio, really nice. Was it broadband? I’m doing one in narrowband but here I see a lot of detail.


For this job I used Optolong L-Enhance.
When I test the instruments from the terrace of the house unfortunately I photograph with a very strong IL and so I used this filter.
I also use the old Lumicon Deep Sky which in my view is better than many others, including Optolog L-Pro. Optolong L-Extreme on the other hand, again in my personal opinion, is a bit too drastic. Obviously it depends on what object you make and what IL you have.

But when I want to take serious shots I try to escape to the mountains and … I don’t use filters. :star_struck:

Ciao, Marzio

Really nice Mario. It is increadible what you can achieve with an OSC camera and anti light pullution filters. I am looking forward to see your images from a dark location.
