This understandably seems to be a go-to list of what filters are best for particular nebulae.  But the formatting doesn't make it very portable for the field.  Has anyone turned this information into a small spreadsheet?  If not, I'm happy to do the work and share it here, but it seems like someone must have done it already.  I'd like to take it as a one-pager into the field with me.  Thanks.

I converted the list to Excel a while ago and here it is.

I am attaching two versions of the table that I've tweaked for my use, in case they are helpful.  I prefer the "brief" version for my field use, either in hardcopy or on my phone.  Please note that all of the information is included in the four "filter" columns of both spreadsheets -- I've just narrowed the columns, so I only see the ratings.  I am attaching both versionshere, in case they are useful to anyone else.  Thanks.
