I read about them, but it seemed like an extra step for milky way. Working with a raw file and doing the same adjustments seemed to make more sense for me. I'm not at home, but I have a folder on my computer that has links to places that will help to process the milky way, or night sky.

 

Since I would be shooting raw, I really didn't see the need to add the filter.


Thanks, Dennis.

Ive never heard of them. Jeff

 

That makes two of us, Jeff.  I was going to ask what they are, and what are they supposed to do, but Dr Google answered for me.  Interesting.  :)

Agreed.  After looking it up on Google, I realized that the Nik Collection does a lot of this already.  Even LR is getting quite good at this.

 

While this might appeal to folks who always try to "...get it right, in the camera...", I suspect that appeal would be limited.  :)
