I'm about to get me some binoculars (www.apogeeinc.com)...them 12x60's with the built-in nebula filters look neat, along with this inexpensive observing platform (http://www.helix-mfg.com/binoculars.htm) one of our fellow board denizens pointed out to me (scroll down to 'Bino Platform'.

My question is:

Will nebula filters assist in comet viewing?

They may help a little in seeing the ion tail, but they won't help with the dust tail, since it is reflected sunlight.
