      Comments about Baader Planetarium Solar Continuum Telescope Filter:

      This green filter should give us a clue here - it makes the sun green!

      A Denk Planetary runs circles around this filter to make white light viewing jump out. Try it-

        Comments about Baader Planetarium Solar Continuum Telescope Filter:

        A great filter combination when used with the Baader AstroSolar Film (A MUST for your eye protection!!!).

        Our astronomy club had a stargaze (solargaze) this past weekend at the Festival on the Greens on the campus of the University of West Florida and when the folks viewed the sun through my CPC 800 GPS XLT, there were a plenty of ooows and awwws. Many never knew you could "safely" view the sun and see the sunspots. This Hg filter really made the sunspot's details jumpout.

          Comments about Baader Planetarium Solar Continuum Telescope Filter:

          I have been tracking Sun spots for two months using an ETX-90. I have the basic yellow, blue, orange and neutral filters. They all have their place, but the continuum filter provides a very pleasant view of the Sun and makes Sun spots very easy to locate. My primary EP is a Baader 36mm aspheric. With that EP I can see bright faculae around the Sun spots. This is a great filter for general Sun spot viewing and drawing.

              When used with Baader solar filter film, this filter will help bring out sunspots and subtle details. However, it won't work miracles. It does increase contrast and brings out more detail than simple color filters do.

              The Solar Continuum Filter is good but not amazing! It makes a good addition to my filter set but is nothing to write home about!
