There is a member who has done tests with urban imaging from a red zone and the results he was getting were nothing short of amazing! just the other night, near full moon he shot the Eskimo nebula with the moon only 10d away and the detail he was able to get from it was just amazing.

You can image just fine from a red zone, trick is to keep the exposures short and shoot many of them to reach the same SNR as a longer exposure. The more SNR you get the more you can stretch in post processing.

I use a ClipIn CLS filter all of the time but narrowband would be nice, its on my radar someday.
