I am using the zwo 7slot 36mm filter wheel and wanted to know would the astrodon 36mm fit that filter wheel?  Thanks.  Just planning for the future when I would like to replace the zoo's.

Yes. I have AstroDon 36mm NB filters in my ZWO 7x36 FW.

Agreed. I also replaced the ZWO 36mm with unmounted 36mm Astrodons. No problem.

Out of curiosity would this be the same with the Chroma 36mm filters? I assume it would.

I sure hope you are right! If OPT ever ships the set I ordered last week it would be super nice if they actually fit.
