Yep Polariser gives you more flexibility to get it just how you want it. Useful to meet the needs of the ever changing phases of the moon

Well I don't like polarisers for a variety of reasons, mostly due to the loss of contrast.

Of the ND filters, if I could have only one, I'd be torn between the 0.9 & 1.2. 0.6 is definitely too light, 1.8 is definitely too dark & 3.0 is nearly opaque!

My preference for a moon filter is Wratten #29 (deep red) but #58 (green) is also acceptable if you don't mind losing dark adaptation.

Thanks Brian - just wondered what are the other reasons you don't like them ?

Cheers.
