Description

Lunt Engineering 1.25 Inch Solar Herschelwedge

Lunt Engineering 1.25 Inch Solar Herschelwedge for solar white light imaging and white light visual observing. Features an integrated ND3 filter which allows perfectly SAFE imaging or visual observing of the Sun. If you wish to do visual observing we recommend dimming the image for your eyes with a Polarizing Filter. Simply put one Polarizing Filter on the bottom of your eyepiece and adjust the brightness to your comfort by rotating the eyepiece.

Provides perfect surfaces for a very high contrast and completely closed housing with integrated heat trap with no scattered light escaping, for maximum viewing safety.

Lunt 1.25” Herschelwedge should only be used with refractor telescopes. The full solar energy enters the telescope and the filtering happens close to the focal plane, so we only recommend refractors when working with the Herschelwedge. Otherwise the refractor shouldn’t have a rear corrector lens, as the optical elements would become heated through the concentrated solar energy and could be damaged. Filters are only allowed at the eyepiece side of the Herschelwedge and not at the front.

In addition to better image quality, the Lunt Herschelwedge offers more light, so you can use a special contrast filter, which will increase solar contrast.
