Baader Solar Herschel Wedge

Update

I had to do a lot of searching and ordering various adapters but finally got what I think will work with my Celestron Skyris camers to obtain back focus using the Badder Solar Wedge with my Telescopes.  Many of you may remember, the Badder as wonderful as it is can not achieve back focus with my two telescopes (127mm and 80mm APOs).  But, help is now here using a badder adapter which allows me to remove the nosepiece to mount the camera direct to the wedge.  I can’t wait to try it out and post the images here on this Solar page.  I love sweating for you; so I am waiting for the hottest days of the year to do the next set of images Smile .

No June Images Yet

I will tell the truth!  In this area of the world I have had only a couple opportunities to pull out my Solar imagining system to get busy with more solar images in early June.  To update you here is a timeline from my last postings.  I broke a cable on my Losmandy G11 mount. I...
