Didn't you catch some detail. That 3nM filter looks like it's worth the money!

How are you liking the Anitila filter? I recently purchased a ZWO ASI533MC to use with the new Apertura 72MM scope (not shipped yet but I couldn't pass up $100 off it)... and am still contemplating what filter to get for it. I'm still leaning towards the OptLong L-Extreme dual.... but since my main capture setup is a mono setup with 7nm ZWO filters... I'm not REAL familiar with OSC needs.

Would I love "top of the line"... you bet your ass... but I'm a simple retired civil servant on a standard state retirement package. I would LOVE to buy Cadillac equipment, but my finances (especially considering I'm financing a local astronomy group out of my pocket) are more Yugo in essence.

I really like my Antila filters, I'm seriously looking at Antila's dual band filters for my OSC cameras http://www.antliafilter.com/col.jsp?id=120

I recently did a lil experiment with my ASI533MC P. I picked a Nebula and shot it with the L eNhance in the train, I went out and pulled the filter and took another image. Quickly went back out and put the filter back in. I didn't save the filterless image for comparison but my guess would be a got about 1/2 the detail that I get with the filter in.

Not familiar with what the extreme filter's claims to fame are. I suspect it has something to do with LP.

I'll have to decide on whether I want to use a filter drawer or what. Whichever I do I have to wait a while as a large part of my mad money was spend on other items that I hadn't planned for.
