Is there a general agreement on which brand is better over the other? I will be getting the 1.25" with a 1600MM.
Maybe they are the same, just branded differently?

thanks

It's been a while... but I think I did some comparrisons between ZWO, Optolong and Astronomik, and went with Astronomik for quality/consistency...

I think the ZWO filters are rebranded Optolongs, at least currently.
