About the Baader Polarization Filter for Herschel Wedge - 2" Round Mounted...

A particularly handy attribute of the Herschel Wedge is its partial polarizing effect on the solar image. This permits a very convenient means of variably adjusting the image brightness, simply by using a single polarizing filter, like the Polarization Filter for Herschel Wedge between the Herschel and Eyepiece. The filter/eyepiece combo can then be rotated, and the image is variably dimmed. This method is very useful for easily achieving the optimum brightness for maximum visual contrast at any magnification.

 

The Baader Polarization Filter for Herschel Wedge - 2" Round Mounted be attached to a 2" eyepiece. For the ultimate in convenience, we recommend the 2" Polarizer attached to a T2-15 (2"-1.25" adapter). This allows you to conveniently switch between 1.25" eyepieces without removing the filter, and still maintaining a close position between the eyepiece and filter. Use of a T2-15 also gives you a very convenient means of attaching and removing the Solar Continuum filter.

 

Please Note: Polarizing filters are intended for visual use and must only be used in conjunction with the existing internal ND=3.0 filter. A polarizing filter does not provide sufficient blocking by itself, nor is it able to block IR wavelengths as completely as an ND filter.
