Wow!

These are new animals! I have not had a chance to chesk them out - YET! I can only speak with experience on the Neodymium Contrast Booster. Which is great. Baader is a solid German firm with a long reputation for innovation in filter technology and blow doors on the other available filters out there, though they are in a tight heat with Sirius filters. But a good Skyglo-type filter in combination with either their contrast booster or their fring filter would likely be an excellent combination for both killing city lights and disposing of the efeects of chromatic aberration. But again, as I've said before, the chromatic in the f9.3 AR-5 is negligable to start with. I find myself rarely rummaging through my filter collection to find one.

So bottom line: Experiment and post your own findings. You the Man now! Have fun!!

Dave
