Filters for mono camera to get colour

I used to have a bunch of different cameras but have thinned down my equipment and now only carry a monochrome CCD and a DSLR (see which ones below in my signature).

The Flea mono camera I have, am I able to get a filter wheel and the appropriate filters to capture in colour? I know the process is more difficult than using a colour camera but it saves me buying a new camera!

Any recommendations on an appropriate wheel and filters I can get? Looking at something decent but won't break the bank as it won't be used every single time I take the scope out.

Thanks!

A set of Baader or Astronomiks are pretty good. Not too expensive but good quality.

try Optolong (via Cyclops Optics)...

I recently bought L-Pro from them, it is very good and passband is as per add (tested by myself).
Price was significantly lower than Astronomik and/or Baaader equivalent (they both claim this filter is "cheap" and "bad copy"... but I found it to be low cost and actually very good performer.

Have a look at the ZWO filters and manual or electronic wheel, that they have introduced recently. They use industry standard thread profiles and should work with your camera. Bintel stocks them, check the Bintel website or go direct to the ZWO optics website for more info.
Forget Astronomik filters, one filter will cost you more than an entire ZWO system. Start with a basic system to learn.
