Check out a few Herschel Wedges (Solar Diagonals) from my "private collection". I use the 2" Baader Ceramic Herschel Wedge most of the times

Quite a collection.
I just have the old Baader Herschel before and after the heat dissipator, 2 Lunt Herschel`s, one Unitron and one Edmunds and I don`t remember the make of the other one.
Abrazo,
Eric.

Hello Pedro,
I like the Clavé and the Unitron ones. I should have bought them long a go.
