Wednesday, March 5th, 2008
Tonight was pretty clear so I decided to play with testing shooting through the achromat with using an Orion V-Block filter to try and trim down the violet halos around the stars. For the most part it worked but things were very green and I had to really tweak the colors in Photoshop and even then it didn't turn out quite as natural as I was hoping. I'm not sure if I'll continue to shoot through the filter or not.
 
Here are the test images from tonight.
