Astro-Physics Solar Continuum Filter 2



Unsurpassed contrast of photospheric details is achieved by an extremely narrow half bandwidth of only 8nm. Functions like a monochrometer, suppressing the effects of atmospheric turbulence to provide images that appear markedly more stable.

Focus "Sweet Spot Generator" - completely eliminates the usual focusing guesswork - the image snaps to a razor sharp focus at the exact focal position. Image the sun the way professionals do!

VERY IMPORTANT: The Solar Continuum Filter MUST be used in conjunction with a visual density white-light solar filter or Herschel Prism (with ND3.0 filter) in front of the lens. We suggest Astro-Solar ND 5.0 Visual Filter material, also from Baader Planetarium. If you prefer a ready-made filter, we suggest the Baader Planetarium ASSF, ASTF or ASBP solar filters or Kendrick solar filters, also constructed with AstroSolar Safety Film. DO NOT attempt to use this filter without a white-light filter in front of your main telescope optics. Serious damage to your eyes could result.
