Re: What Whitelight Filter for a Meade 8" SCT?

It would be convenient to add some solar filter continuum or some IF / UV filter or Neutral Density filter?

Hello, I have some important questions for me in relation to white light solar observing..: - Using a Hershell prism to observe the sun in white light, is it better to use it in a refractor with ED or APO lens or is it the same if an achromatic refractor is used? Better with long focal length F8 or ...

SolarMax 60 II vs, Daystar SS60-DS

Hello
Now that the CORONADO SolarMax II 60 BF10 model has a good price I'm thinking about acquiring one, I've also seen that Daystar has released the SS60-DS model, at a lower price, has someone been able to use them for visual observation?
Thank you
