    This Zhumell filter is perfect if your observing site is pretty dark, or just slightly light polluted. It will filter out the light Sky Glow that you always experience.

    The nice thing about this filter, is it will filter out the unwanted glow while retaining the stars and other deep sky objects. The sky looks blacker in the eyepiece, and the stars and other look brighter with better contrast. This filter will also enhance the planets.

    This is a great quality filter, and the price is unbeatable. Grab this one up.

    this filter will help greatly at darkening the sky especually in light polluted areas but also somewhat dims whatever object you are looking at. with farely dark viewing conditions the image with and without this filter are about the same on deep sky objects but if you are in a very light polluted area it will definatly help blocking the light pollution

              The filter is excellent! I did have a hard time getting two of them for my binoculars. First they didn't send them at all, then sent only one of them. So I am ordering the second one again.

                Comments about Zhumell 1.25 inch High Performance Urban Sky Filter:

                I live under heavy light pollution, so this filter seemed to be the right choice. I was mostly wrong :(
                I initially used this filter with the AstroMaster 114eq and didnt really see any change except for the image getting darker. I figured I just didn't have enough aperture.
                Well, about a week later, my new 8 inch F/6 dob arrived and I took the SkyGlow filter back out for another try.
                I still didnt see much of a difference other than a darker image. I a little disappointed that this filter did not live up to expectations. I had tested the filter looking at a rainbow spectrum and could see that the filter WAS cutting certain wavelengths of light. But in use I saw no real change. I really though that this filter would help bring out at least a LITTLE more detail on brighter objects like Orion nebula.
                The best performance of this filter has been on planets, sort of. Since this filter is just darkening my image, it helps with planetary glare.

                    Darkens the sky, thus eliminating some light pollution. Increases contrast slightly, but adds a horrible phosphorus GREEN overlay to any bright object !! I would rather deal with the LP than look at a synthetic green Moon or Jupiter !! A total waste of money.
