      Comments about Zhumell 2 inch High Performance Ultra High Contrast UHC Filter:

      The filter works better in dark skies, but it really help me locate the Trifid Nebula. I could not see the nebula without the filter in my 8" telescope. The stars come out green, but on darker nights, that effect seems to diminish a bit. For the price it's a good filter.

        Comments about Zhumell 2 inch High Performance Ultra High Contrast UHC Filter:

        Does what it says. I won't view nebulae without it. It really brings out the nebula and makes it MUCH easier to find.

        Things to note:

        -- I live in a white zone (the worst light pollution)!

        -- It makes the entire image green tinted (not really a big deal for nebulae because you can't see color anyway).

        -- I have a 12" Dob, so I don't know how it performs in smaller telescopes. However, I would assume it would still work very well.

        -- If you are using a 1.25" eyepiece adapter, some eyepieces cannot be inserted all the way without it touching the filter. You can check for this before you purchase it by inserting your eyepieces and check if it passes the filter threads.

        -- I have never used any other nebula filters, so I cannot compare it to anything else.

        Overall, this thing is AMAZING. Buy it.

          Nebula that I couldn't see, or could hardly see popped right out once I got this filter in. I am using it with a 20mm and 30mm 80 degree eyepiece. Spectacular views. Highly recommended.
