Is there a way to purchase individual 1.25: color filters that seem to only be sold in the Orion 5453 Premium 1.25 Inch 20-Piece Color Planetary Filter Set (Multiple Colors)? Specifically...Wratten #'s 30 Lt. Magenta, 32 Magenta, 44A Lt. Blue-Green, 46 Deep Blue, 57 Medium Green, 64 Blue-Green. I have been unable to ascertain the name of the company the produces them for Orion. I sent a query to Orion and the response was simply that the filters can only be had as a set. I just don't need the whole set.

All help, positive and negative welcome

AgenaAstro has a large number of filters from GSO, Lumicon, and others. One of their GSO color filter offerings is for a 4 filter kit of your choosing.
