Hoya Starscape filter - Legit or Snake Oil?

3 years 2 weeks ago #664957 by Crammer
I saw this filter mentioned on a Facebook page   https://hoyafilter.com/product/starscape/

They claim it's going to cut down light pollution allow for better night time shots of the stars.  

Anyone have an opinion or better yet, hands on experience with this filter?  

Please share your thoughts.  Would be cool, however I could have sworn that cutting light pollution was one of these "can't happens".

Breakthrough and Formatt-Hitech both offer a light pollution filter. There must be something to it. And it's not unreasonable to think that frequencies produced by urban lighting could be filtered out.

Me, however, I'd rather get out of town.
