    Hello j.gardavsky

    Great information, thank you. I have another question if you don't mind. I was looking at the celeston uhc/lpr graph and it looks very similar to the astronomik graph(celestron lets in a little more skyglow it looks like)... Is the celestron worth buying instead of astronomik?

    I used to have the Zhumell UHC. I upgraded to the DGM NPB filter and it does a better job. I can see more detail now.

    I pulled the trigger on the DGM NPB due to the overwhelmingly postive feedback. And the fact it has a more natural color that i hear brings out blues and pinks even. i'm excited. thank you all for the advice. I've learned a lot about filters from this thread.

    Hello CosmoJoe,

    the Celestron seems to have a bit broader passbands than the Astronomik.

    However,, both the Astronomik and Baader filters have been also offered on some markets under the other brand names.
    Otherwise, I'd intuitively second to what Wallcreeper has commented above.

    Best
