Hey Pedro,
It would make a good white light instrument as well.

Hi Pedro

Your telescope museum is coming along nicely :D
That's a lovely scope I had my best view of the veil nebula through one of these with a OIII filter many years ago.

By the way your water tower is just begging to be turned into a solar tower observatory, now that would be nice :P

Good to see the Pronto results Pedro, which are certainly very-promising, especially the first surface AR/(filament) .

Well done

Terry
