Solar Viewing with H-alpha filter #5485814 - 10/23/12 06:22 PM
WHILE USING A SAFE SOLAR FILTER, can you also use a H-alpha filter to get cool views and images of the swirling surface? I was looking at this H-alpha filter from Astronomik, and it says "The Astronomik 6nm H-Alpha filter may NOT be used for solar observation." Do they mean that using this filter alone without a proper solar filter will not keep you from burning a whole in your face? Or do they mean that it won't work at all for solar viewing.
