I wanted to introduce myself as the new owner of Lumicon International, LLC manufacturer of filters and accessories. My wife had been the controller for Lumicon for several years and when the economy took a downturn along with the tsunami in Japan, it created a big downturn for Lumicon's business. We saw this as an opportunity to take Lumicon to a new level so we decided to purchase the company and focus on its core products once again. We have retained some of the key people in the company to work with us. We have just completed production on a run of UHC's, OIII's and Deep Sky filters. While we are still short on many products listed on the website, the 3 mentioned here are now ready for shipping.
I know many people have experienced long delays in some recent shipments but with new ownership and guidance, we are returning Lumicon back it's position as a top supplier of filters.

Thank you for all the words of encouragement.
GeneT: We will continue to make available the deep sky filters with the same manufacturing process and specs as is the same for any filters that will be available in the future. This is what Lumicon was built on and what I plan on carrying on. We are currently finishing production on Deep Sky's, OIII's and UHC's and they will be ready to ship tomorrow. If you or anyone has any specific stock inquiries, you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will provide whatever answers I can.

I'd sure like to see LS2045 and LS3045 available again for purchase.
I expect both of these to be available by Friday this week. Machining is complete and they are being anodized currently.
PM me if you are interested in placing order and I will confirm availabilty.

There is no change to the manufacturing, process or specs. They are the exact same filters as under the previous ownership.
Have you obtained a new mfr. for your filters?

I'm glad to hear that the Lumicon name and product will continue! They've long been the benchmark in quality.
