hi Carl

I don't have image comparisons, but if you go with the clear filter option and are shooting through lenses or refractors then you will need a UV/IR cut filter either on front of the lens or the front filter in the camera (which won't fit with EF-S lenses, but will with all normal EF lenses). Otherwise you get UV blooming around all the stars.. pretty ugly. With reflectors you should be ok without them.

The clear filter gives you great IR photography potential, but if you're not interested in that you're probably better off with the extended UV/IR option.

I also have some X-Nite CC1 lens filters of various sizes I'd be happy to sell if you want to restore close to the original colour balance for daytime photography after the mod.
