- dark skies
Edge HD 8 Hyperstar V2 performance is sweet!
I've only had it out one night so far but was very impressed by it's performance! ZWO 294 color camera produced amazing results. 45 mins on the Horsehead and 90 mins on the Rosette. Great filter, as billed, maybe better and works great at F 2.1 IDAS NBZ 48mm
This filter has changed my Dso imaging from meh to great. So glad I got it. Very excited for the coming year of imaging. I use this with Hyperstar. No halos.
Best filter yet
This filter is Great and I highly recommend it. I just cannot tell u how much better my images are, and you will see the same. I am in Bortle 9 skies, yet I get images where it appears I am in Bortle 2-3 skies, truly amazing! The cost is very reasonable compared to having an hour or 2 drive, to get to dark skies, now I can image from home!!!! Thanks OPT and IDAS!!!!!
One of the best
This filter is one of the better performing ones i have tested. The NBZ filter is good for F7 and faster scopes. I have only tested this so far with my c11 edge hd and hyperstar v4 during a full moon. The filter did a great job not only cutting the light pollution but also the glare from the moon. Its not as good as a narrowband Ha filter but the data is quite useable. Very impressed. Im also impressed that bright stars have very little halo. The antireflective properties are pretty amazing.
Amazing filter for RASA
the NBZ and RASA 8 are a great combination. I was able to shoot the Veil Nebula and M27 (Dumbbell) under a full moon and get pretty decent results. Haven't tried it yet under dark skies, but I am really looking forward to seeing what it can do. This filter works great with fast scopes like the RASA (f2) and doesn't seem to suffer the same loss of signal that the Optolong L-Extreme does.
