    Default Who is the real Lumicon?



    There is a lot of confusion as to who the real Lumicon company is. Does anyone know? I know there is a company called SVOtek, and they sell filters on ebay, but their description for the filters say made in the US, but everyone says all their filters are made in China and then imported. How can I find a REAL Lumicon How can I be sure? Should I buy a used Lumicon and nothing current? I am looking for an 2" OIII and a 2" UHC. If not Lumicon, any other recommendations?

    If not Lumicon, I recommend either Astronomik or Baader.
