  1. Exactly...I am planning to get the NON f/2 ones, which are meant for f/3.5 to f/10, 36mm 6.5nm set
  2. I am just going by the pics on FLO's website. But regardless, just so I can understand this. What are the consequences of buying mounted vs unmounted 36mm filters? Do they have an impact on EFW choice? Say I purchase the v2 ZWO EFW, 7x36mm filter wheel. Will the filter wheel accept mounted AND unmounted 36mm filters? Thanks
  3. I see, thanks for that. I think once they ship and FLO gets them in stock, it will be clarified. So, I'm after the 6.5nm NON f/2. Just to understand at what price point they will be available in 36mm: The 6.5nm CMOS optimised f/2 set 36mm are: £435 https://www.firstlightoptics.com/baader-filters/baader-high-speed-65nm-narrow-band-filter-cmos-optimised.html The 6.5nm CMOS optimised f/3.5 to f/10 are: £408 https://www.firstlightoptics.com/baader-filters/baader-narrow-band-filter-set-cmos-optimised.html It seems they will be 36mm MOUNTED, but not sure.
  4. Thanks Adam Not sure when they were in stock! They're all out of stock now? I have noticed that the new CMOS optimised Baader filters ALL show marketing for F/2? And in the description it says: 6.5 nm FWHM, recommended for extremely fast optical systems from f/3.4 to f/1.8 Does that mean it would not be suitable with an Esprit 100 at f/5.5?
  5. I have been using my 294MC Pro with my SW ED80 Pro for the past year and a half, and happy with it. I do not understand why amp glow is ever mentioned as an issue. We take Darks when doing AP, and the AG is cancelled out, with the rest of the dark noise etc...never was an issue. I've also heard good things about the 533. I've also seen some very nice images on Astrobin with the 294, 533 and even the 183 OSCs. I think you will be pleased with either one you choose.
  6. Excellent. Many thanks. These still seem to be in the pipeline. I will keep an eye out for them. Last question please, sorry. Is there a HUGE advantage in going with 3/4nm over the regular 6/7nm SHO filters? Surely they are better, but are they MUCH better for me to consider them, considering I am just starting out with mono?
  7. Oh, thats's very helpful Adam, thanks. I guess I will wait for those CMOS optimised SHOs. BTW, the link you provided is for their LRGB filters.
  8. So the set currently advertised on FLO is the newer version, but with older charts? Can you please advise regarding the full Baader LRGBSHO set vs the ZWO? The ZWO is SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper. Will I regret getting the ZWO? I believe in "buy once, and cry once." Obviously not Chroma or Astrodon buy once, cry once!! If I need to go to the £1100 Astronomik set, I will go for that, but if the Baader set is decent, I will settle for it, even better if the ZWO will do the trick?
  9. Old chart only, or are they selling the OLD set as well?
  10. 36mm? I can see that they only offer a MOUNTED 36mm, as opposed to all others offering unmounted 36mm? Does that have any impact on filterwheel choice? I am planning to purchase the ZWO 7x36mm version 2 FW?
  11. Thank you all for the replies. So, let me make it easier for you to advise me on which set to order: P.S. I will be starting out in Mono imaging, so NEWBIE alert! A- Baader LRGBSHO 36mm: £695 LRGB: £290, no idea what LRGBC is? https://www.firstlightoptics.com/baader-filters/baader-lrgbc-ccd-filter-set.html SHO 7nm/8.5nm: £135x3: £405 https://www.firstlightoptics.com/baader-filters/baader_narrowband_36mm_filters.html B- Optolong LRGBSHO 36mm: £668 LRGB: £239 https://www.firstlightoptics.com/optolong-filters/optolong-lrgb-
  12. Oh, I see. So a NARROWER range is better. I see.
