    The make up of the filter (darker glass) can also make a difference in
    the number of images, depending on whether it is tinted all the way
    through or surface coated.
    
    A polarizing filter, if darker film sandwiched between two pieces of
    clear glass, might also add a wrinkle to the equation.
