Baader Calcium K-Line Filter vs Continuum

Review and Comparisions

After 4 months of waiting on the back-order of the Calcium K-Line Filter to ship it finally made it into my hands this past August. This filter is currently only offered in the  1.25 size. For me this for some challenges when using it with my camera and telescope set up. In the coming months, I plan on doing some additional imaging with the Calcium K, hopefully with more sun activity.

Stellarvue SV80 Access Review

Super ED APO

Stellarvue SV80 Access Telescope.  This new Stellarvue SV80 Access mm telescope will be a nice addition to my solar setup as well as my night time Astronomy for low to medium power viewing.  If you read my earlier post you know I do Solar viewing in HA and white light. hydrogen Alpha has very specific requirements that provide spectacular solar views, while the White light is more forgiving but still offers hours of enjoyment.  Earlier this year I sold off my older Meade 80mm to upgrade to a finer, higher quality instrument.

This project is going to be fun and rewarding.   Please read on to see how the mount holds up and hear my comments while I use it out in the field.

DayStar Camera Quark Review

In general, Solar viewing and imaging is a better fit for my lifestyle. In this article I will cover down on the DayStar Camera Quark, I have the Prominence version. So let us take a look under the hood.

Lunt Solar Wedge Review

White Light Solar

Today I would like to introduce you to the Lunt White Light Solar Wedge.  I have been a solar observer off and on for a number of years, one of the first accessories I purchased for my refractor was a solar film attachment.  This allowed me to use my telescope to safely view the sun.  I was hooked!
