Hi there, I'd like to try imaging some galaxies from my backyard in the suburbs (Bortle 6). One of my main issues is trying to work out the best light pollution filter to use (if any) and which software to use. I've done some reading and it appears that the filter most often recommended is the Optolong L-Pro filter for this task, however I have seen another recommendation to use an IR-pass filter like the Astronomik ProPlanet 642 which reportedly almost eliminates the light pollution but still lets the IR from the galaxy through. Others recommend no filter, and use software like Astro Pixel Processor or PixInsight to remove the light pollution.
Your thoughts appreciated, thanks.
