  1. Thank you for responding...I think you are quite right about a smaller refractor, being more appropriate but am loathe (being 84 and on fixed income) to tie up more money...Am thinking about buying a small H-Alpha filter and mounting it off axis in an aperture cover made of whatever as long as it is opaque and light enough to not destabilize the telescope...what do you think, or do I still have my head in a warm dark place... Ken Not sure I am using this media right, but thanks Peter and Dave...Think I'll just go with Thousand Oaks Solarlite for a while then maybe trade my way into a refractor with H-A..

  3. I have a Meade 12 inch LX200 and since I'm getting old (84) missing sleep just ain't fun anymore...Sooo I am switching to solar..I will buy a glass H-Apha same size as aperture but it seems the 12 lets in to much light or something. Am studying like crazy on all things solar but am a bit foggy about the H-Alpha...Any help out there? Thanks Ken
