Optolong L-Pro Filter Review (Astrophotography Camera Filter) by AstroBackyard


A Broadband Astrophotography Filter for Urban Light Pollution

I’ve had a chance to review the Optolong L-Pro filter (2 types) for astrophotography from my light-polluted backyard in the city. I’ll be using this filter with a Canon 5D Mk II to capture the Pleiades star cluster through a compact refractor telescope. I’ve chosen this target for the L-Pro because I want to showcase its ability to produce natural-looking images of broadband astrophotography targets from the city.

I’ll also show you what you can expect using the L-Pro with a camera lens, as I have both the 48mm filter and clip-in Canon EOS-C (APS-C sized sensor) models. The complete list of astrophotography gear used for this review is listed further down the post.

Since owning the Optolong L-Pro filter, I’ve captured two deep-sky objects through a telescope. The Pleiades star cluster and the Orion Nebula.
