Same here Davy,I have had a H alpha and O111 for about a year and never used them.So no experience at all. I have been using the IR pass filters on moonlit nights on the imx 432 camera without much joy so I am keen to start using the H alpha. cheers Paul
I use a faux narrowband filter for nebulae. STC duo with the asi071. But so far only for AP so far though. Must give it a go at EAA!
It's got 2x 30nm wide passbands over Ha and O3, so wider than narrow band filters. So while not as selective it lets me use a colour camera as you can split the red and green/blue pixels into Ha and O3.
I've used an asi290mm with an Ha filter for video Astro and that worked really well.
