This reminds me of a fascinating article I read once (probably in an old copy of "Deep Sky", but maybe in one of the Webb Society journals): it described the enhancement of visual contast in certain low-surface brightness dwarf galaxies using a high transmission ("bright") red filter. I forget the astrophysical rationale for trying this approach, but I do remember that the author was partially pleased with their results.
Anybody tried this, or heard anything about it?
