Recently collected all gears and extracted UV/IR filter from Nikon D600, here are some photos from the first test in the Arboretum park (Nottingham).
Gears: Nikon D600 (full spectrum) + El-Nikkor 105 (metal) + Edmund Optics Square Filter Holder + BG3 (2mm)

Ural, Nice photos! :smile:
I will say... I have always liked the OG590 (red 25) red/blue swapped more than the BG3. If you have a simple red filter around, try it, swap it, and see what you think.
The only thing I would use BG3 for, personally, is 1.5mm thick stacked with S8612 2mm (or better yet, 1.5mm), but even that pales in comparison to a UG5/U-330 1.5mm + S8612 2mm stack.
A simple red 590nm filter alone, red/blue swapped, in my opinion is my favorite over the BG3. Not saying you should feel the same, just saying you should give that a try and compare.

Thank you, colleagues, thank you Steve, I will try OG590 at some point, unfortunately, I do not have any red filters with me. This hobby is very exciting and I won't be surprised if at the end of the year I get a suitcase with different filters :-) The next step will be to stack somehow UV filter with Tamron 24-70 and see what happened.

I really like the bridge/ tunnel shot. Reminds me of an old park.
