      I don't think it was meant to improve my imaging but attaching this to a nose adapter and DSLR...it seems to work! Definitely visually improves block out the street light glares without too much false colors. Great when it's on sale!

          Comments about Zhumell 2 inch High Performance Urban Sky Filter:

          A Filter is ONLY AS GOOD as when you use them. Everyone has misplaced filters that sadly didn't work. This Filter casts the slightest shade of pink. Though by doing so It makes for a Great light pollution filter as well as doubling as a Nebula enhancer as well. It provided just the touch needed to capture this photo of the Great Orion Nebula from badly polluted skies in and through Down Town Las Vegas skies. Camera: Cannon Rebel T3 Prime Focus: Exposure: 6sec X1 using a Cannon Rebel T3. Bravo.

            Comments about Zhumell 2 inch High Performance Urban Sky Filter:

            This filter, excells at finding Nebulas! It darkens everything but the specific wave length of Nebulas. Allowing you to quickly locate them in a darkened sky. I use a 50mm eyepiece with a 70-80% field of view, until I locate one and then zoom in with a higher magnification eyepiece, like a 9mm. Works great to find those not too bright nebulas, hiding amongst bright stars. Very satisfied with fit,finish and price.

                Comments about Zhumell 2 inch High Performance Urban Sky Filter:

                I have not had the opportunity to use this on any nebula yet, so I can't say whether it enhances those views. Also, I am told that filters perform best from dark sky sites, which I have not tried yet. So, it seems like a solid piece of glass and doesn't feel cheap. I just have not gotten to use it on good targets yet.

                I can't recommend this, at this time, purely because I do not know.
