It's probably worth picking up a good quality uhc filter from Astronomik or Baader you might just find you never take it out.

Thanks. I'm researching better eye pieces at the minute, and I've also ordered a barlow as I really want to maintain good eye relief.

I am tempted on cls. I haven't tried for any DSO's yet (too busy with the planets and stars) but it's only a matter of time.
