Madness!!! I was thinking exactly the same. Going to have a look around on the net later! Are any better than others or is it a standard sort of filter..........is that a stupid question!?

depend on what you have already of course, but a bigger finder is always favourite or maybe a nice bag/case for transportation

I've just mounted a red dot finder to my scope, also bought a Baader Hyperion 8mm EP last month.

A case sounds like a good idea too.

I'm so damn indecisive!! :)

Not a stupid question :)

This is the sort of thing I had in mind - they are the only safe way to do it !:

Solar Filters - AstroZap Baader Solar Filter

Solar activity is on the increase - these are "white light" filters so you won't see prominences but you can see sunspot groups, granulation and faculae.

PS: Don't forget to cover your finder if it's an optical one - even a glimpse though an unfiltered optic can damage your eyes.

That's brilliant!! I'll certainly put this on my ever growing list!!!

Was unsure as to which filters gave the best results but this looks like a pretty cool one!

Thanks again for that!!

How about paying some bills?

No seriously.............you could buy a 6mm Vixen NLV and decide you hate it and sell it to me at a small loss to yourself.
