They should work well under dark or light polluted skies but the narrower bandwidth would be particularly good for rejecting light pollution.

I'd argue that you don't need longer exposures with narrower bandwidth filters so long as they have equally good transmittance. Any extra signal you get with a wider filter is not useful data.
