Milky Way photography, the boondocks, and weird hours go hand in hand. There are thousands of discussions and articles that cover techniques and post-processing. What is lacking, though, is discussions about safety and security. With the prime Milky Way season kicking off here in North America, now is an excellent time to visit safety and security tips for Milky Way photography.
The IRIX 95mm Edge Light Pollution Filter costs about USD 179.00, which is a lot of money for a specific purpose filter. (It's also available in 67mm, 72mm, 77mm, and 82mm diameters.) While no filter can remove all light pollution, I wanted to see if this light pollution filter could help with my Milky Way photography.
