My Ha and Oiii filters arrived yesterday and amazingly there was a break in the clouds last night to give them a try. Things were stacked against me. The seeing was poor, a 9.5 day old moon was less than 20 degrees away and my target M16, which was very low in the sky. So, when the first sub came in it was a wow moment for me. The level of detail on the Ha sub, I was very impressed with. I am in a Bortle 4 sky, but being early in the evening my neighbours had their security lights on, but the filter cut through all of that. Certainly on first impressions the best filters I have used, so will be interesting to see what others who have more experience than me make of them.
