Product description
Baader - Solar Continuum contrast filter for solarobserving 1 1/4"

The Baader Solar Continuum Filter lets pass a small part of the solar spectrum around 540 nm. In this wavelength the flares, granules and other structures have the highest contrast. The image of the sun appears in deep green - with extreme contrast.

The effect of the Baader Solar Continuum filter:

- The contrast of the solar surface is highly increased. Especially structures like flares on the solar limb, granulation and fine structures at the rim of sun spots become more clearly visible.

- The chromatic abberation of achromatic and ED objectives is completely blinded out.

- The Baader Solar Continuum is not a simple green filter, it is a specialist for the sun. It has its maximum transmission exactly there where the solar structures offer their maximum contrast.

- The narrow band filter reduces the seeing´s influence on the image quality. Fine details become more steady.
