Looking for a new filter set

#1

Post by yobbo89 »

I've been searching far and wide for 3nm filters, some products are fairly difficult to come across in aus. Anyhow I come across this local online retailer, they sell this brand called "Antlia". Has anyone heard of them?

I'm in the need for a complete replacement of filters due to the frustration of different brands in my fwheel and using an oag.most of my current filters are badder, I have two astronomiks filters that are pricey, I might sell them

Astroungu gave me a qoute for lrgb, ha, oiii, sii $5100 :eek:
Woundering if it's worth salvaging the current astronomiks in my setup, does anyone know the thickness of chroma filters? I like to image in hbeta aswell, many astrophotgraphers really have no use for h beta but I find it usefull for the horsehead nebula. Does chroma make h beta filters?

I had a look, i don't think the price is any better then chroma since i would have to import astrodons and pay tax import.

I can't find any aus retailers that sell the new badder ultra narrow filters, I did enquire about those antlia filters, I'll see what the retailer has to say about them, it looks like they are pretty new on the market
