LPS filter by Hutech (IDAS) gets lots of recommendations or CLS filter from Astronomik.

Astrodon may have some and perhaps Baader as well.

The red glow is amp glow. Use long exposure noise reduction on all your night shots and it gets removed in camera.

Would you be able to give a link to one of the filters?
