The Sky-Watcher 2 Inch Ultra High Contrast (UHC) Filter is the best all-around dark-sky nebula filter. This filter permits superb views of objects like the Orion, Lagoon, Swan and other extended nebulae. It performs well in smaller aperture instruments owing to its greater light transmission than the O-III, yet still suppresses light pollution well. Supplied with storage case. More
The narrowband UHC filter, like the O-III filter, isolates the two doubly ionized oxygen lines (496 and 501nm) in addition to the hydrogen-beta line (486nm) emitted by planetary and most emission nebulae.

Absolutely Fantastic Filter

Comments about Sky-Watcher 2 Inch Ultra High Contrast (UHC) Filter:
This filter is simply stunning. The effect when looking at the Orion nebula - wow. So much more contrast - much more visible detail. Dark lanes through the gas clouds appear, whisps of gas in places you could never see before. A fantastic addition to anyone's filter set - performing at an order of magnitude better than a dark-sky filter for most nebulas I've viewed with it so far. Very much recommended.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
