Remove protective filters at night
When you’re out shooting at night, it’s worth removing any UV or Skylight filters you have in place to the protect the front element of the lens.
If you don’t, you may end up with ghostly halos and flare from light sources in the picture. As you’d expect, these problems are much worse when you’re shooting in a city lit up at night, but you can experience these problems with the moon as well.
Instead, fit a lens hood to protect the front element – this will also reduce the chances of flare caused by stray light that would otherwise strike the front element.
