Quote:Just wondering what configuration I would have to use with Binotrons? I've got both the Denk OCS 45 and the special Lunt OCS. Will be used with an ES 127 and Baader Herschel wedge. Thanks for any tips you guys can give me.

Thanks for any tips you guys can give me. As others have said, I don't think this will work. I know that my Denk II + ES127ED + Hershel Wedge will not come to focus. Considering that the Hershel Wedge gets hot enough that some units actually smoke until the oil burns off (had this happen with 3 different wedges from both makers) I would think it could cook the glue in the OCS lens, or even crack it.I had a friend who mistakenly put a ND filter in front of a Lunt wedge on a 6-inch F/12 Astro-Physics refractor and..... *crack*!!! the filter actually cracked.With my ES127ED I use a Baader solar filter in front of the lens when using a bino-viewer. The view is spectacular, and in some ways better than using a Wedge mono.

Quote:I am surprised that you have not done this before! I mean you had all the stuff!But glad you gave it a try.
Quote:My setup: William Optics 80mm Zenithstar II refractor, Baader Herschel Wedge, Baader Maxbright binoviewer with 1.25x glasspath compensator, and TeleVue 2.5x Powermate. I used two sets of eyepieces for viewing: a pair of University Optics 18mm volcano top orthos, and then tried a pair of TeleVue 13mm Naglers. Phil

Quote:I depbated getting Ha, but honestly there is so much amazing detail in white light that I can observe for an hour and not exaust it all...I do not know how seeing affects Ha, btu it is my biggest obstacle. I have to observe for an hour to get maybe 2 or 3 minutes of high res views. Worth it though.
