has anyone tried out this light pollution filter? It seems to do exactly what I want, which is to remove that orange spectrum put off by sodium and mercury vapor street lamps.

I ask because the website does not give any examples of the results given by this filter.

If you look at my flickr you will see what to expect. I do use the cls-ccd filter but i have just got the cls one also to use on another camera but havn't tried it yet, i would expect very similar results. They do put a funny colour cast on you images but with white balance and or post processing you can get rid of it easy.

I could not shoot here without the Astronomik clip in. They also make threaded filters. Does a wonderful job. Without the CLS filter I can only take 45 sec lights. With the filter I can take up to 3 minutes.

I would recommend this filter, the color cast can be easily dealt with in post-processing. CLS/CLS-CCD is particularly effective to image emission nebula. It will improve the S/N for single sub under moderate light polluted skies.
Here's some combined results that I took with CLS-CCD and ha 12nm. All imaged in a light polluted red zone.

Virgo galaxy cluster (only cls-ccd used)
