Is it worth changing my old ZWO LRGB filters for the ASI1600 optimised ones?

Post by james_screech » Mon Jul 20, 2020 1:47 pm

I have an old set of ZWO LRGB filters that I originally used with my ASI120mm is it worth getting a set of the filters optimised for the ASI1600MM-C as I'm now using it for deep sky imaging? Do the filters make a big difference to get the colour balance right?

Thank you
