Re: First-light test of FLI ML8300 & 3 nm Astrodon H-a new [Re: rflinn68]

We are planning to do a comparison that will isolate the filters as the (nearly) only source of variation. We both have KAF-8300 cameras (his FLI, my Atik). His filters are much larger than mine (I think they are the 50mm round versions, where mine are Baader's 36mm filters). We'll compare results on a single scope and see what the images look like.

I'd be very interested in seeing the results of this. Wish I could also find a 5nm vs 3nm Astrodon h-alpha comparison somewhere. I think the H-alpha will be the first filter I get after I buy my camera.

We'll be running my 3 nm Astrodon vs. wider NB filters sold by others. The next clear night, I'll try out the 3 nm OIII, which is likely a more stringent test.

The wider other filters will be the commonly available Baader 36mm unmounted set (7/8.5/8 nm Ha/O3/S2, respectively)
