Thank you all for your comments

yes this Istar Optical lenses optimized for h-Alpha ( sphérocromatism optimized in red wavelenght) is very good!!!
I used for a long time a very good AP155 mm F/D 8.5 to make my solar images, but there we go into another world!!!

a image of my home made refractor on AP1200 GTO Mount



I am certainly going to build soon a 280 or 300 mm in FD 12 or 15 ( folded refractor)

the 230 mm works also well in lunar

Magnificent J-P..!!!

A 300mm refractor.....that would be a veritable monster - even though some folks might think a 9"/230mm is already!!!

I guess you don't take that scope to Star Parties! I'd love to see what a 300mm refractor looks like with you standing next to it for comparison. Amazing Sun shot JP, your dedication to this hobby is off the charts!

Pete,Wenjha Thank you

Pete the next 280 or 300mm refractor will be a folded refractor, thus less impressive
