    Product Description

    Meade's Solar White-Light Herschel Wedge is proven to give a sharper, higher-contrast image than traditional metallized solar film or front-mounted glass solar filters, by eliminating reflections between the filter and front telescope lens. The result is a sharp, very high contrast view of Sun spots and solar surface granulation. Safely view and image the Sun using Meade's Solar White-Light Herschel Wedge. Easy attachment to your telescope in a 2", or 1.25" with included adapter, focuser. It is highly recommended to remove the viewfinder while using Meade's Solar White-Light Herschel Wedge to avoid any situation of looking into the viewfinder directly at the Sun. For use with REFRACTORS ONLY. Refractor must be 150mm or smaller. Not for use with SCT, ACF, MAK, or Reflectors.

    I have been using this wedge for a little over 6 months, and if you have ever used a Solar wedge before you'll know they are incredibly sharp. The wedge doubles as a Solar finder, which makes it a lot easier to locate the sun, which is surprisingly harder to find in the sky than you'd think. The price and build quality also make this a great for not only visual observation, but also for astrophotography. If you have a Refractor telescope >150mm then consider this wedge as a solid investment for safely viewing the Sun. Only improvement I can think of, is that the ND Filter is a fixed darkness, I'd like to see a variable ND filter integrated that could allow more or less light depending on what you are viewing or imaging... ie using a 5.5mm Eyepiece with a 2x Barlow allows a lot less light than a 20mm eyepiece by it's self.
