Astrophotographer Shawn Nielsen is testing SHO-3nm
Astrophotographer Shawn Nielsen is testing SHO-3nm I've used Optolong filters for the past 5 years now.

"The Optolong L-eXtreme filter is now being used in backyards across the globe, which is great news for those that take astrophotography images in heavy light pollution.
