visual Cak observation

Post by DSobserver » Sun Jul 06, 2014 1:22 pm

Hello

I just received this week a cak lunt filter.

I know by experience that this filter is mainly for photo and my last experience with a cak PST confirm it.

So when I order this cak lunt filter it was only for photo.

Nevertheless I try a quick visual observation with it, and waouuuuu! It was amazing I could saw everything like on the pictures!

I'm using a taka TSA 102.

Is there any risk for the eye and/or any UV cut filter to secure the visual observation.

Lunt CaK is safe for visual if you can see something :)
