CORRECT PLACEMENT OF A BAADER FILTER

Post by grdc65 » Wed May 24, 2017 3:52 am

Hi all,just quickly wanted to ask which way should you place a Baader 35nm Ha filter,that is which side should be facing the sun(the red side or the very reflective side?).It would be acting as a sub aperture ERF.Thanks all,Nick.
