New Calcium Quark

Post by Astrograph » Mon Oct 26, 2015 6:09 pm

After a long wait the new Quark Calcium has been announced!

It will be Calcium H Line (396nm) and be like the Combo in as much as it does not include a tele-centric.

Price is the same as current Quarks.

More info to follow!

Hi

I wondered myself about stacking with a 1.25" filter. K-Line is 393nm and H-Line 396nm. If the Baader filter is half decent then it should not work because it should not have enough bandwidth to cover 396nm.

What might boost contrast a bit is something like a #47 which does pass that wavelength although it won't be strong. All a bit academic until we actually get one to try out.

My useless Ca H filter from Omega bob should work great as a double stack :lol:

Thanks Rupert ... I don't think it will as the Baader filters DS (SB narrow) to , I've enquired about
it's likely / possible bandwidth.

Hi Mark

Thanks for the nod about the info posted on Jens site. Not quite what I have asked them but the 5A comment is interesting. Still waiting for a reply from Daystar about more detail.
