Re: Quantum 0.4Å PE Filter

Hi Paul, Thanks for your help. I will contact Daystar and send them the Image and see what they say about it. Saw some Setups here similar to this and nearly all telecentric are directly attached to the Quantum with just an Adapter ring similar to mine. Hopefully I can test it on my TOA 130 in my Ob...

Re: Quantum 0.4Å PE Filter

Hello Rainer, hope you will get good testing weather. Seems distance from powermate to camera does not really influence magnification for the 4x powermate: http://www.televue.com/engine/TV3b_page.asp?id=53&Tab=_app But it might have impact on focusing. See notes on backfocus: http://www.daystarfilt...

Hi Steve,

I took off the silly tuning wheel. Flattened that part and put those holders where the wheel was.

If you need more info please contact me.

Steve: Rainer a friend of mine and also a member of the fórum, moves his etalon tilters with small motors, so adjusting is very easy while viewing the sun. I think he loaded sometime ago some photos of his unique system. He also lives in México, so I will try to get in touch with him. Best regards,...

Re: Replacing the Rusted BF30 Filter

I think the solar image is much smaller than 5mm coming out of a 450mm scope so this is why you have no vignetting. The full image transmits right though the port hole. I do not use a 5mm BF but I am using a BF30. Below the reasons why I use a BF30 as well as I do not like diagonals as they make li...

Re: Replacing the Rusted BF30 Filter

nobody makes blocking filter replacements because the specifications vary so widely between all the filters and brands. from 5mm to 34mm all the specifications are completely different because they are designed to operate at different focal lengths. The filters are probably hand selected based on s...
