Re: transit Mercury several freq

Hed3 filter made by Andover optical Mass
its in 10A - 20A bandwidth range
so not same as true narrow band or what i can get
thru spectroheliograph

but still can capture good surface details on sun
when weather conditions allow

its used in conjunction with baadar n3.5 filter
