In this video I take a look at the Optolong L-Pro light pollution suppression filter for city backyard astrophotography with your telescope and DSLR or cooled cmos camera. I also do a quick process in Pixinsight of the data taken with the L-Pro filter and show you the end result which is quite stunning considering the short amount of time I spent imaging M31 and it was taken in bortle 7/8 sky.
OPT has a great deal on it >>> http://bit.ly/2kggrwt
What is this filter though and how does it work? Why do you need it?
If you’re part of the growing number of astrophotographers that are imaging from their own astro backyard, then you’ll be dealing with city street lights and neighbour outdoor lights in addition to cloudy nights! So for those few clear nights we get, we want to make the most of it and the Optolong L-Pro filter can really help.
