Broadband & Narrowband Filters for Colour Cameras
In this article we look at some of the popular light pollution and dual narrowband filters available for DSLR and Colour Astrocameras. We will look at some examples of each filter in use under the stars and some of the benefits these filters offer astrophotographers living in light polluted towns and cities.
