I have just about settled on a narrowband LPR because of the extent of light pollution where I live. More than anything, I want to increase the contrast on nebulas and objects with nebulosity.

All that being said... Celestron, Lumicon, Meade, Sirius, Thousand Oaks and Sky Instruments all make some sort of LPR filters... so my question is : which brand is better?

Thanks a bunch

If you are going to use the filter in astrophotography the best choice is Hutech LPR. It is designed for imaging not visual use.

Phil Harrington did a review in "Astronomy" a couple of issues ago...may be worth tracking down

Speaking of which, David Knisely offered some noteworthy critique of that article here (http://www.bautforum.com/showthread.php?p=559869#post559869) in a previous discussion.
