Recommended Posts


Altair Solar Contrast Booster filter is in stock and shipping now.


Improves contrast and visibility of fine structures such as sunspots and granulation (convection cells) in the solar continuum / photosphere.


Works with any telescope, mono or colour CMOS camera, or naked eye.


Gives a particularly good improvement with Achromatic refractors.


Please note: Only for use with a Herschel Wedge, solar filter, or Baader solarfilm!
