Hey guys, i want to know if it is worth it getting an OIII filter from Svbony for DSLR astrophotography purposes. I haven't really seen any topics surrounding this and I might pull the trigger if it brings great results, (will also be useful visually in a future europe trip)

I know im supposed to pair this with an H-alpha filter but i'm not sure if they are worth twice the cost, especially when the svbony OIII filter hits both blue and green channels in my case.

 

 

(Note: I've already heard you aren't supposed to do narrowband imaging with a color camera, but recent videos from Astrobackyard have convinced me otherwise)

Start with Ha and see how that works for you. O3 may not give you much signal in most instances, especially when using a color camera.
