I currently own the Baader Neodymium & Baader Contrast filters. What filters do I need for DSO's and other 'faint fuzzies' (mainly visual)? ...all 1.25" ...and observing from an urban environment? :iamwithstupid:

UHC and O-III filters will enhance nebulae. A trip to dark skies for galaxies :smiley:

Thank you @John.

How good are the OVL ones that FLO sell?

They are OK but not the best. This thread is recent and relevent:

There are lower cost brands such as Castell which are worth trying.

I use Astronomik's UHC-E "budget" broadband filter, don't know how another could perform noticeably better, and I especially don't see why one should spend more on a broadband filter. Same for Baader's 10nm O-III unit, can't imagine how nebulas could look cleaner. The Astronomik did a very good job on a comet and a good one on a few galaxies. Even some globulars liked it a bit, but not as much as galaxies and comets in non-nebular stuff.

People think the scope is the most expensive part of astronomy. Not the case. Its all the extra things we buy that add up.
