What Whitelight Filter for a Meade 8" SCT?

Post by Pluton » Sat Oct 13, 2018 9:10 pm

Hello,
I have a Meade 8" SCT and I am lookind for a good white light solar filter like the Astrozap os ASTF , this two with astrosolar baader solar film. or maybe a TO Solarlite...., I like know your opinion on if using this filters in conjuntion with a solar continuum filter is best for visual image contrast... or maybe a ND filter is best, for granulation ?
I mean if is best the only white light solar filter, the WL solar filter+solar continuum or WL solar filter+ ND filter .
Thank you very much
Paul

For visual I would choose this one:

You can also buy "sheets" of this filter and make your own holder.

It would be convenient to add some solar filter continuum or some IF / UV filter or Neutral Density filter?
Thanks
Paul
