Has anybody ever purchased from Antila directly before? This new Quadband filter is coming our, I emailed their sales department and they gave me a weird email for PayPal to purchase it for a early bird special. Has anybody ever done this before? I mean I would be using PayPal goods and services, but still always leery of doing this, figured I would ask on here.

I purchased the Antlia 393nm CaK wedge directly from them on line. Credit card. No problem.

Hope you don't mind, I send a PM to elaborate a little further.

Best bet is too verify the domain name that you are purchasing from to make sure it is Antlia (http://www.antliafilter.com/). If you have the right domain name (not Antila) and you are using PayPal, which has fraud protection, then you are protected.

Sorry, I was wrong. I got the Antlia 393nm wedge from:

and for those interested it greatly enhances the faculae across the sun's disk, but it will not give you a real CaK image.
