DayStar Combo Quark (chomosphere) - repost to right forum

Post by alintolea » Wed Apr 27, 2016 7:39 pm

Does anyone own the newer Combo Quark (chromosphere)?

Would you care to share some images/visual impressions, esp if you could compare with the original quark (in terms of uniformity mostly, but also bandwidth, since daystar now doesn't guarantee a specific bandpass..)

I found only one image on this forum taken with a combo quark alone (not use in a double stack with a different solar filter) on this forum, and it was also taken with a 4x powermate ( the original scope was an AR152 f 6.5, thus the final f/d was f:26..)

I'm curious to see an image taken with the quark alone and a setup in the f:15-20, though f:26 is not far from that..

My scope is a 100 f:9, and I just ordered one + a 2" 2x barlow to push my f:9 telescope to the recommended f/d , has anyone tried it at F~9-10 too?

I know I can just wait for it to come and see for myself, but oh well...
