Post by swisswalter » Mon Aug 26, 2013 8:09 pm

Hi all

as Mark and me promissed, here are the hottest plots we ever made so far: We are sure the record won't last for Long ;-)






choose your filter combo and you are there :cheer:



Be sure to use that combo striktly only with a ccd. Every thing else, eyes and plastics gets molten within a fraction of a second



on request we can show here a sample, how to destroy an ace 640-100 gm

Isn't the transmission more but the bandwidth is wider?

How does it compare to the Lunt CaK Blocking filter on its own?

Hi Alexandra


thank you very much for your response. The filter combo who gave the best pics is the one with the lowest transmission and it has also the narrowest bandwith. We measured it today 1,08 nm and 2,7 % transmission

Hi Michael


thank you very much for your response and the question. The LUNT stack on it's own gives about 8% transmission and a bandwidth of 1.38 nm
