Kson 2" UHC filter

Last Night,Saturday 31/08/19 I tried out my Kson 2" UHC filter on Wes Smith's 20" Dob (Zamar).
To say I am impressed is an understatement.
It out performed another very well known UHC filter discussed on
this forum.
The detail on the Veil Nebula (NGC's 6960,6992) was fantastic.
What was hinted at in the other filter was plainly seen in this filter.
Comparisons was achieved through different eyepieces and all put the Kson 2"
to the fore.
This filter cost less than a third the price of some of the high end brands and to me it was well worth the money
Wes,(Zubenel) may want to comment further.
I purchased the filter from a New kid on the block "Astro Dog"
A Brisbane based online shop

Discussed in this thread.

Asolutely first class service,delivery was very prompt.
The packageing was maybe just a little exstravegant but it did also come with a little free gift.
All in all a well worth buy.
Will definitely consider them again if a need arises.
Cheers

Hi Ron , even though I have Tak And Baader diagonals I purchased an el cheapo from them for a friend and it is excellent, with near spot on collimation (most diagonals arent)
If someone is after a good diagonal and short on funds , get one from them , my friend is happy ..esp the jellybeans!

I have a mate who owns the only astronomy shop here in Cairns. He stocks KSON products & I have to say they are first class & exceptionally good value for money.

I own the UHC in 2" & 1.25", I find them exceptionally good.

I've also had a bit of a look through a KSON 102mm ED refractor, beautiful views, solid build, quality focuser & diagonal...

Had planned to purchase one of their 80mm triplets for AP however, someone listed a 5000 series Meade triplet on here at a bargain price...

I'd buy the KSON products without hesitation...

Hey Ron and all , I was amazed and dismayed all at once when I looked through the KSON UHC filter at the Veil nebula! Amazed at the starkly brighter image that was immediately noticeable and dismayed that the Koreans had clearly knocked the German Astronomik UHC filter from the top. The brighter threads of this Supernova remnant started to bring on photgraphic qualities. I'm currently processing an image I let run of the Veil through KSON UHC filter when we went in for coffee. to be posted If I didn't already have a UHC filter I'd be scrambling!!I wonder what their O3 is like?

Wes,I also have an 2"0111,if I didn't have one I surely would be interested in purchasing a KSon.
