Whenever I have come into large sums of money in my life, I always put half of it aside to spend on fast cars and the pursuit of loose women.

Quote:If one already owns a Baader film solar filter, would there be any point in also acquiring a glass filter, like the Thousand Oaks? Clearly most everyone prefers the film, but is there anything that can be seen better in glass?
Quote: ...is there ANY white light filter that offers a view that is different in some way from the Baader film? I guess colored filters may be the closest thing for now.
