IRIX Edge Light Pollution Filter Review

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.

See The Best Vacation Spots in Our Solar System – Wanderers by Erik Wernquist

there's a film that shows all my dreams and more come true! Made in 2014 by Swedish film maker Erik Wernquist, the film Wanderers shows what it could be like to travel around our solar system. Wernquist, a digital artist and animator, took actual images from NASA spacecraft and combined them with live action and computer generated graphics. The film shows tourists exploring and experiencing the beautiful vistas across our solar system.
