Hi all,

I was considering Baader Moon / Skyglow filter. When I was going through listings in Amazon, I came across very similar filter maketed under Astromania with less than half price tag.

Has any CN’er compared them? Is it “you get what you paid for” kindn of deal or “close enough for the price” kind of deal?

There are a lot of moon and skyglow filters out there.  The Baader is the only one I've heard makes a significant difference.

 

Wow.  $16 for a 1.25" filter, $25 for a 2".  Yeah, I'm sure they'd be better than nothing, but I'd be skeptical that I was getting comparable quality.
