The only caveat to this would be a case where any object had a significantly bright emission feature which was excluded by a particular filter's bandpass. Are there any common examples of this folks know of - maybe certain types of emission features being darkened relative to the background by an H-beta, or by some of the "custom bandpass" filters? Just curious...
