I have a question for the whole solar observers group
I'm currently using a Bresser Messier refractor 102/1350 with should give max resolution of 0.8" (depending on the formula one use to calculate it).
and I'm tempted to go for the Bresser Messier refractor 127/1200 with would allow to reach 0.6" resolution .
There is only a slight difference of 0.2" !! will that be visually noticeable ?? will I see some interesting gain in imaging ?? ( turbulence problems put aside)..
Is it worth the purchase ? I expect a gain in light gathering and hence a brighter image.
You 've got to bare in mind that i'm only watching the solar prominences on the limb and only on the very small portion that is visible through the entrance slit of my spectroscope.
I'm only considering the prominences observation in this matter.
What do you think ?
I'm also asking you this question because i was striked by the sharpness and contrast provided in h alpha by the 102/1350 ! Will i get the same with the 127/1200 ?
thanks a lot in advance.
