  1. Hi Ras,

    You will be fine to use any of those EPs. Nothing will melt as long as you have the Baader solar film securely fixed to the front of your scope. You are probably best to make full apperture filter, considering your size of scope. there are plenty of on-line guides, including plenty on SGL. The most impotant thing to remember is that the film needs to fully cover what ever apperture you choose and that it is securely attached.

    Full aperture size as opposed to using that small port in the end cap right?

    Thanks for the help. I'll go ahead and make my order!

  2. Hi,

    I'm planning on buying some Baader AstroSolar film to use with my Skyhawk 114mm. I have the stock Skywatcher 10 and 25mm EP's and about to order a Vixen NPL 15mm. Will I be able to use all these EP's for a spot of solar viewing? Or are the two SW EP just going to melt? And what about the Vixen?

    Sorry if it a newb question, I've never tried my hand at solar.

    Cheers

    Ras Skipper
