Has anyone used light polution reduction filters for starry sky photography?

Are they worth it? Any suggestions?

I was looking at the HOYA red enhancer RA54 but I realized I'd probably want to get a 72mm one and that's starting to get pretty expensive...

Similarly, black mist filters - has anyone used the cheap hoya one vs any of the tiffen ones?

Well I ended up buying an Ice LIPO light pollution reduction filter... and a hoya softener A filter. We'll see how this works.
