View or image the Sun in white light with a Lunt Solar Wedge! This diagonal-type solar filter inserts into the focuser of your refractor telescope for safe viewing of eclipses, sun spots, and more.
The LS2HW preforms best on refractors with 6" or less front aperture. As long as you can reach focus for imaging with a standard star diagonal on your night time telescope, you will be able to reach focus when imaging with Lunt Solar White Light Wedges. Note, however, that solar wedges are for use ONLY with refractor telescopes. Do not use these with other telescope designs (SCTs, Maks, etc.) since the full energy and heat of the Sun is concentrated inside the telescope tube.
The addition of a polarizing filter (not included) is recommended when using the solar wedge visually. This allows you to dim the solar image for your eyes to your liking. Simply put one polarizing filter on the bottom of your eyepiece and adjust the brightness to your comfort by rotating the eyepiece.
This Package Includes:
- 2" Lunt White Light Solar Wedge
- ND3 Pre-installed Filter
- Metal Carrying Case
- Die Cut Foam with room for accessories
