    This is a good read regarding the Lumicon Deep Sky & Orion Skyglow filters. I found it only AFTER ordering the Lumicon... otherwise I would have ordered the Orion or maybe the Baader. Also, you may check this out- Apparently, it preserves neutral color balance so you don't have to process hues caused by filtration out later... I would be very interested to see how ti does.

    I've seen a couple comparisons of the Lumicon & Orion filters, one post in this forum also gives the Lumicon the edge.
    That sounds like what I need but I may need to wait until next month as I've tapped my savings pretty good the past couple months.
    It is worth it though!
