Due to the combination of the narrow bandwidth of 6nm and the high transmission of typically 96% the filter gives you an contrast boost, as all unwanted light from other wavelengths than 656nm is blocked form UV up to the IR. This results in an very dark background compared with any filters with a higher bandwidth. The FWHM of 6nm is optimized with CCD or CMOS cameras with a low dark current. The 6nm filter is the best choice if you are observing from a heavily light polluted site or if you are imaging faint objects in starcrowded regions of the milkyway.
The filter blocks all unwanted light from artifical light-pollution, natural airglow and moonlight. Especially light from High- and Low-Pressure Sodium and mercury lights and all lines of natural airglow are 100% blocked. The filter increases the contrast between the sky-background and objects glowing at the H-alpha line at 656nm.
