    Do you perhaps turn the filter untill you get the lowest light reading? Does that produce good results?
    Yes, when I get the lowest light reading the effect on the sky is the largest. Not really acurate to know what it looks like. But I like the results.

    You simply hold the filter to your eye, turn the polarizer until you like the results, then note the position on the white mark... 12 oclock, 2 oclock etc. Screw the filter on the lens. Turn the filter to the appropriate "oclock" (make sure you take into consideration vertical or horizontal orientation." Add 1.3 stops of exposure (or 1.5 if you can't use 1/3rd stops), and take the image. It's really that simple.
