does anyone know if astronomiks filters are good quality filters? i am looking at buying UHC, OIII, and h beta filters.

Astronomik filters are widely used by the astro community - Especially as they have created the EOS clip in filter system for Canon Astrophotographers.
I don't have experience with them myself as I use Ba'ader filters, but can definitely recommend them.

I've used the UHC filter and can confirm its an excellent quality filter. It provides a significant contrast boost - planetaries and nebulae really jump out at you. I haven't got the OIII but am considering it.
The UHC filter is definitely an improvement over other brand UHC I have used.

They are as good as or better than any filters available on the market and in many cases much cheaper too :thumbsup:
Are you looking to use them for visual only or also for imaging?

I own those 3 filters in both 1.25" format and 2" format. As Mike said they are as good as anything on the market. Highly recommended.

I own a UHC-E in 1.25" format and find it brilliant for bright Nebulae's. They are also very easy to clean without scrathing them.
