I don't see much in terms of solar imaging and especially none in terms of full-fame (35mm) setups. I would like to have this discussion in the context of Lunt scopes and what kind of setup (scope/filter) would be suitable for such an adaptation.
Question: When it comes to solar (dedicated) scopes, I guess diagonal is referred to as the (solar) blocking filter? If this is the case, then I think all solar (dedicated scope) imaging would have to happen via the (solar) diagonal or the blocker? Corrections/elaborations welcome.
Note: Primarily, I am NOT referring to regular or modular scopes that get adapted to solar. Although I would like to discuss those as well, first I would like we get the (solar) dedicated scopes out of the way.
Let's start off by looking at as well as qualifying Lunt 50mm (dedicated) solar telescope with B600 blocking filter; my understanding is this particular setup would 'not' be full-frame/2" compatible? Also I am curious to know about the back-focus on such a scope whether or not it will be able to reach focus?
If Lunt 50mm may not be capable of native full-frame/2" adaption, then what would be the best starting size (or FL) in Lunt scope & blocker (diagonal) that will allow such an adaptation and be able to reach focus. Regards
