Narrowband filters baader or zwo

Recommended Posts

I see zwo have released a new set of 2” narrowband filters. 
 

They do appear to be much more expensive than the existing baader narrowband filters.  But they also publish transmission in % for wavelengths like HAlpha, Which I don’t think baader do ? Interesting ? 
 

Worth it or stick with baader ?

The Baader Ha filter is excellent and I cant see how the ZWO one is worth 80 quid more? The Oiii filters of all brands do suffer from halos usually though I had my 36mm unmounted Baader Oiii replaced and the new one was perfect. When ZWO released 'their' brand of filter they all suffered from halos. I just cant see how they can price themselves between Baader and Astronomik?

I would stick with Baader unless I had a very good reason to look elsewhere.
