I have an Optolong L-eNhance 2" filter on order along with

the Altair Astro filter drawer.  An option to consider if I want to speed

up the order completion due to stock availability is to go with the

Starizona filter drawer.  Dimensions are very similar in terms of thickness

and overall diameter but the Altair is a bit cheaper.  Can anyone comment on

their experience with either filter drawer and / or make recommendation ?

here is a link to the Altair: https://tinyurl.com/6rnmvpd6

and one for Starizona: https://tinyurl.com/xhrcuss

 

both are very similar.  I think the T2-T2 connection profile is

what I need to place it between my ASI533MC Pro and ZWO OAG.

I use the Opolong 2" L-Extreme, L-Pro, UV/IR Cut and UHC filters in a Starizona filter slider with no apparent problems.  Can't image why it wouldn't work with the 2" L-eNhance filter.

These are most likely same filter drawers just diferently branded.

I have AltairAstro one and love it. 

You may try to order directly from their site in the UK:
