Solar filters front and back
« on: 02:39:19, 23 October, 2012 »

After 3 star parties where there was great viewing of the sun and not much of anything else I am thinking of initially adding filters to an omc 140 (may get a dedicated scope later. I will probably get a white light filter from orion as they have one which screws in but I am wondering about the benefits of adding a baader continuum, double stacked continuum or a k filter and the benfits thereof, I would also welcome any other suggestions for filters.

Also could anyone suggest where I could get a 1 1/4" visual back with a compression ring for the OMC 140 - same as standard sct (celestron meade)

I'm not a visual guy but my continuum filter makes a real difference in my images.
K line calcium filter even further.
Some people have difficult seeig anything with dedicated CaK scopes but I'm not sure if this applies to these calcium filters.
Hm, checked TS site and apparently they are so broadband so not a problem:

Celestron C8, C9.25" & Hyperstar, iOptron CEM60-EC, TS 80 triplet,  Coronado PST, SXV-694,  ASI120MM/ASI174MC Cool
