Re: New CaK etalons from Solar Spectrum

However, these filters incorporate new hard-coated Alluxa blockers with a very high ~ 80% transmission. Additionally, Mark has received some very transparent uncolored mica that makes - in combination with the high T blockers - the less than 1 Angstrom bandpasses practical. My original DayStar ATM ...

Re: Lunt CaK

Tareq, If your package was delivered incorrectly, you’ll need to reach out to UPS with all of the information possible about your package and file a claim.
Maybe you did this already.

Re: Lunt CaK

Hopefully, the person at the wrong address is honorable and not a thief so you will get your filter back ASAP.
I assume you or your Lunt vendor already filed a claim with UPS. Wishing you some good luck and speedy recovery of your Cak filter!

Re: Giving up or wait much longer?

May I suggest you consider a pair of solar binoculars for visual observation, if you don't have them already? Visual observing can be very gratifying as well. I often remember my binocular observation of the Transit of Venus and how Venus appeared as a very obvious 3 dimensional globe, it was truly ...

Re: Baader ND3.8 1m roll expression of interest

Hello Alexandra,

Please put me down for 1 roll (assuming 50x100cm).
btw, In checking about the 3.8 film last summer with Alpine Astro here in US, I was told the film is manufactured in 1,000 meter runs.
Thanks so much for this opportunity!
