Hi-
I started about a year ago and have a Celestron 5se. I haven a zwo 224 and zwo 290. Both have been
excellent. The biggest difference is that the 290 has a very small pixel size, so more detail. This is
a good link that describes all the zwo cameras, but also more general parameters.

Honestly, I have not had much success with filters. I've found the "light" pollution/nebula filters make
finding enough stars to stack difficult, and the results are only marginally better. Have not found much value in the color filters.

Also, one good investment was a williams apo 70 refractor for wider field shots. I just replace the celestron tube with the williams tube.
