If I understand correctly, the current SVBONY and ZWO NB filters are the budget version, the Baader the medium price and Astrodon/Chroma the high end/high price?

Yes, this is roughly how it is.

Thanks, I have got a real headache trying to untangle the whole NB thing. And the costs are... painful.

Add to this the reported problems with star reflections from the 1600 sensor and various sensors/scope combinations, the complexity of post processing etc, and it becomes almost rocket science.

I think that I shall restrict myself to planetary and moon photos for the time being, until the dust settles with the coming sensors etc.

I LOVE narrowband imaging and it is the bulk of what I do. I now have a huge variety of scopes and camera, but right now all four of my OTA are using ASI mono cameras and I mostly do SHO imaging. It takes some time and the processing is different, but Its very rewarding. I have actually not done any moon or planetary imaging in years.

As I am a beginner and on a tight budget, I don't wish to take many risks. Hence my "research mode". Until I learn using the current equipment, I suspect that it'll be a great waste of money.

Cheers,
