Comet Filter

Hi all,

Lumicon make a comet filter to help one "see the gaseous tail to its full extent'

Do they really work for visual observing, or is it really just an astrophotography accessory instead?

Have you come across these?

You will get some help if your sky is light polluted. But I would argue against spending money on such a device - a trip to a less polluted site will likely cost less and work even better.
