LRGB filter sets,...Astrodon or Astronomik

Recommended Posts

!!!! opinions please !!!!

LRGB filter sets,... am about to get either Astrodon LRGB filters: Tru Balance I series : 1.25" or Astronomik LRGB Type IIc. I can get them for about the same price, so I am only concerned about quality.

I've had a couple of NB filters from Astronomik and both produced haloes. One was replaced but is still not as good as my Baader.

I use Baader LRGB but did once image with a guest's Astrodons in a familiar Takahashi FSQ. These filters are considered to be the business by the well heeled American imagers. I can't really comment based on one image but I found them a bit odd, perhaps just through unfamiliarity. I was relieved to find that they didn't jump up at me and say, 'Ditch the Baaders...' Nope, the Baaders are fine by me.

Thanks Olly :) That's a relief :D I may be in the market for LRGB filters in a few months.
