    Default OSC Filters



    I bought a 2" MOON and Skyglow filter for £3 (US$ 4.35) to use with my OSC Camera. I bought it off Ebay and it included post All the way from China. For £3, why not!!
    Looking at other 2" filters I see one can easily pay over £200(US$ 300) for some well known manufactures.
    I was wondering, apart from a quality MOON and skyglow filter, which I will eventually be looking into. What other 2" filters would any of you knowledgable folk recomend for a OSC CCD?

    The only filter I would recommend is the Hutech LPS D1. It does a fantastic job at blocking unwanted light pollution and really brings out the HA nebulosity in emission nebula.

    Thanks jschr338 for your suggestion. I have read more about the Hutech LPS D1. It looks a great filter. I decided to order one. It should be here by Wednesday.
    Thanks again
