Daystar Quantum Hydrogen Alpha 0.3-0.5Å SE (Standard Edition)

Solar filter for use with refractors, SCTs, Maksutovs. Our precision Quantum housing incorporates ALL of the desired features for today's solar astronomer, and then some. Operation couldn't be simpler, just plug it in and a green light indicates when the filter is on-band. The new Quantum Series body style is all about ease of operation... total simplicity. The housing offers live LCD readout of the filter's wavelength output (accurate to 0.1Å) and red/blue wing shift buttons that can precisely tune wavelength up or down for Doppler studies. The unit operates at 12VDC for field or battery use and includes a 100-240 power supply with US, European, UK and Australian adapter wall plates, as well as a serial port for computer control capability for on-screen display of filter readout.

The Quantum SE grade series solar filters are designed for most amateur and some academic applications. These filters meet the critical Daystar quality control criteria applicable in all visual and some photographic environments.

Our Quantum PE grade series is designed for professional research studies and applications in which precision homogeneity and on-band transmittance values across the substrate surface are required. These filters require additional quality control steps and additional fabrication and testing time.

Current wait for Hydrogen Alpha Quantum filters is 12 weeks from receipt of payment.
