Quote:Sorry about the long delay in posting, and thank you all for your replies and advice. I just went out to the dark spot saturday and I had awesome views with the filters, Orion looked awesome and I was also able to make out M1 and a couple others I dont remember.Also a guy with the astronomy club out there GAVE me a lumicon deep sky and a lumicon OIII filter, they both seem to work pretty well also, overall a nice purchase and now I have 3 filters... cool!
