Is this the goto of all the light pollution filters? I see it used by alot of people. Or is there better or same for the same price for deep sky imaging?

I see a lot of L-Enhance filters being used as well. I have an L-Pro and have been very pleased with it. A Baader UV/IR Cut filter is another one I’ve used in my Bortle 6 (soon to be 7) skies with good results.

I’ve asked this in the past but nobody replied.  Does this filter help for visual as a general deep sky filter.  Obviously with nebula there are UHC/OIII filters, but there doesn’t seem to be much that can help with galaxies or clusters.  This filter is too pricey to buy just to see.  So if anyone can shed light on its effectiveness as a visual filter I would love to hear.  I live in a rural area but have borderline yellow/green zone skies to the south.

I have been curious about this too.  I'm mainly looking for something to help with imaging galaxies and clusters from a Bortle 7 area.
