Quote:The primary purpose of the "wedge absorber" is to block the intense beam of reflected sunlight coming out of the bottom of the wedge -- See the thread's first image. Secondarily, it will keep curious fingers from getting too near the exit beam or touching the rear of the prism (an advantage over the Baader wedge's diffuser design).
