|I was thinking about trying the OPT Triad filter with my SX color cameras on my C11" SCT. I noticed some great images here but before I pull the trigger to get one, I am curious to get feedback by users. I'm in the suburbs of Orlando with Bottle skies around 4/5. I have Ha, OIII, and SII NB filters but am not sure of the advantage of the triad (Ha, Hb/OIII) other than you just need to use the one filter and not worry about changing filters.|

|Is your C11 hyperstar compatible? I’ve thought about getting one before I had purchased a mono camera. I think you’re better off getting a mono camera rather than shoot through one shot color at really long subs with the triad and the quality will be better. an asi 1600 mono camera used goes about the same cost as a 2” triad. Very pricey filter.|

That is a very pricey filter. Because you already have a color camera I would look at the Optolong L-Pro filter.

|Only if you want to image on moonlit nights without the need for a filter wheel and mono camera, imho.|

ok- then makes no sense for me. I have a mono camera and NB filters with a filter wheel and filter drawer system. I was thinking perhaps there was a bigger advantage to using it besides maybe being a little more convenient.|
Thanks to both of you for your opinion.

|It would probably make a very nice luminance filter, but not worth it at that price.|
