Using PostGis and GeoDjango with a model having a Geography field I'm trying to exclude results where the location is 0,0. I get the error PostGIS geography does not support the "exact" lookup. The only thing I can think to do is exclude points that are 0 meters from 0,0:

.exclude(location__distance_lte=(Point(0, 0), D(m=1)))

Is there a better way?

try this:

.exclude(location__intersects=Point(0, 0))

The intersects spatial lookup is one of the four available on geography column types in GeoDjango.

In PostGIS, ST_Intersects natively supports geography column types and has a tolerance of about 0.00001 metres.
