I'm thinking of dipping my toes into CaK imaging using a Lunt CaK diagonal. One of the telescopes used would be my Celestron 90/660 mm achromat, without an additional ERF. It has a few internal baffles (blackened) - should I be concerned?
- when pointing the 'frac at the solar limb, the light cone could be hitting the baffles on the opposite side
- even without that, the baffles will just heat up and cause tube currents (it's a closed OTA)
I thought I could maybe whiten their front-facing sides (but won't it decrease contrast for non-solar uses?), or just remove them and flock the inside of the OTA (I still have some black velour) - though this could be again heating up from indirect illumination...
Use this section to discuss "standard" Baader/Coronado/ Lunt SolarView/ Daystar, etc… filters, cameras and scopes. No mods, just questions/ answers and reviews.
