Hi Brett

I see you like me are in Sydney. I have a infrared stop filter for my DSI2 but I have found that I later needed a light pollution filter which works very well in my location. The lpf incorporates infrared and ultraviolet stop as well as stop bands for the common light pollutants. My filter was especially designed for imaging cameras and is the IDAS LPS-P2 31.7mm. It just screws in the nose of your camera etc. The lpf will be substantially costlier than a simple infrared stop filter but I consider it well worthwhile. Note - when using this filter you will have to increase your exposure about twice as compared with having no filter but this is normally not a problem with my colour DSI2.

Cheers
