Lunt CaK wedge aperture precaution

Post by dccole9 » Wed Oct 11, 2017 3:04 pm

So now I have a Lunt CaK wedge. Lunt recommends you to not use it on anything larger than 100mm aperture. Maybe I'm just being paranoid, but is using an 80mm scope with an aperture mask overkill?

Yes, you can use it up to 100mm just fine
