The new Starfield Optics 2″ Herschel Solar Wedge transforms how you can observe the sun’s surface including sunspots and surface detail. The solar wedge easily attaches to your refractor telescope, replacing the standard 2″ mirror or prism diagonal. The solar wedge is imaging-ready since you can fine tune the image brightness without needing to remove your camera.
Solar wedges, compared to traditional film solar filters, are known to give you a higher-contrast image because it removes all reflections between the filter and telescope lens. The sun can be safely observed with the Starfield Optics Herschel wedge. Brightness can be adjusted by twisting of the 2″ polarizing filter by rotating the 2″ eyepiece holder.
The sun is more active than it has been in years and the Starfield Optics 2″ Herschel Solar Wedge will prepare you to see sun pots and solar surface granulation like never before.
The Starfield Herschel Solar Wedge key features include:
– Visual and imaging use
– Built in ND3 filter
– Polarizing filter provides a wide brightness adjustment range
– 115mm optical back length allows for use with most refractors
– Anti-reflection coated prism
