Somewhat of a newbie to visual solar observing, so bear with me.
I am enjoying white light solar in an 80mm scope with a Herschel wedge.
My question is: Is there a visual solar finder I can mount on or at my AT80´s
Have been using the Tele Vue Sol Searcher, *at the back of the scope, i.e.
on the focuser* and it is quite easy to get the Sun in view.
Trying to avoid UV on my chrome-dome, so today got a TGSO - Telegizmos
Solar Observing hood. So far like it, but it obviously blocks the Sol
Searcher when i wrap it around the scope and if I put it on after I line
up the Sun with the finder, it moves the Sun out of the FOV.
Theoretically, I can tighten up my mount to hold position before I put
the TGSO on, but i´d prefer to leave it on the scope, behind the dew
shield, and have a finder outside the TGSO.
My best idea so far is to get a 14" Vixen plate, which will stick out at the
objective end of the scope, and mount the Sol Searcher there.
Any other thoughts?
