Orion filter wheel - Astronomik filters

A pretty simple question

Do the Astronomik L-RGB filter set Type 2c (1.25") fit the Orion (manual) multiple five position filter wheel (Made in portugal).

I've heard stories that the threads don't quite match up

Cheers in advance.

If it is the same as the ATIK manual wheel (and I think it is) then the astronomik filters will fit. I used one with this configuration for a couple of years and all the filters screwed in with no problems.

The "Made in Portugal" note made me suspect the Orion is a rebranded Atik.

I'm waiting somewhat impatiently for Atik to release the new 9x1.25" filter wheel.
