So, after i got SII days ago now i am only left with LRGB to complete the set of 7 filters, and to match it i have only one of two choices, either Astrodon E-series or Chroma.

 

I didn't see much from Chroma LRGB to be honest, i feel like it is still going through more tests and experimenting by people without final clear statement, sure it is a high quality maker, and the filters should be, but i care about the final result from the filters, halo, color rendition, parfocal,...etc.

 

So, any final comparison somewhere yet?

Some people who I respect and have both have said they feel Chroma is as good. I based my purchase on their comments and went with Chroma. But I'm still in the setup stage so I can't say one way or another beside being a bit of a mono rooky...

I hope you are not talking about narrowbanding filters because for that i believe they are the same and i went with 2 NB Chroma filters but didn't test them yet, i was talking about LRGB, so if you were talking about LRGB then that will be nice, but did they compare or which version of AD LRGB, E-Series or I-Series or it doesn't matter?

My statement was based on the LRGB set and I also bought a Na, OIII, and Sll separately at that time. I can't answer your last question as I don't recall.
