Filters for Solar WL

Post by MjrTom » Mon Feb 20, 2012 3:18 pm

Thought its worth a try before I press the buy button but does anyone have a 2" Baader Solar Continuum filter which is surplus to requirements?

I am also after a Baader UV/IR cut filter, also 2"

A long shot but worth a try at least.

Preferably UK to avoid import tax.

You only pay import tax on new (not second hand).

Mr Tom,
I may be able to help you!
Let me double check my box, but I think I have a "As new" 2" Continuum available.
Drop me an email.

Thanks Merlin.
Email on its way.
I am not sure what the import tax threshold was so played it safe with my UK request ;)
