DayStar Filters Quantum H-Alpha Bandpass Filter (0.5Å, Research Grade)
Key Features
  • Hydrogen-Alpha Solar Filter
  • Engineered for Professional Research Use
  • Improved Surface Contrast
  • Enhanced Prominence Details
Show More
Mainly used to study the photosheric, chromospheric, prominence and atmospheric areas of the sun, Daystar Filters' 0.5Å bandwidth Quantum H-Alpha Bandpass Filter is designed to specifically improve solar surface contrast and enhance your view of solar prominences. The filter is installed at the rear of the OTA, rather than before the primary objective so it can be used on telescopes of virtually any aperture and easily moved between a variety of scopes. This version of the Quantum is designed for professional research-grade users which require tight tolerances and improved quality. To accomplish this, Daystar improves homogeneity and onband transmitance values across the substrate surface, so these filters require additional quality control steps, as well as additional fabrication and testing times.

SAFETY FIRST: Observing the Sun without the proper protection may result in serious personal injury, including permanent eye damage and blindness, and/or damage to equipment. Never point an optic at the sun without an approved solar filter on the front of the optic. For direct solar viewing, viewing the sun through an optic, or when using cameras with an optical viewfinder, ensure your filter is ISO 12312-2 (also written as ISO 12312-2:2015) certified. Never use photographic neutral density filters for direct solar viewing, viewing the sun through an optic, or when using cameras with an optical viewfinder.

DayStar Filters .5QPE Overview

Mainly used to study the photosheric, chromospheric, prominence and atmospheric areas of the sun, Daystar Filters' 0.5Å bandwidth Quantum H-Alpha Bandpass Filter is designed to specifically improve solar surface contrast and enhance your view of solar prominences. The filter is installed at the rear of the OTA, rather than before the primary objective so it can be used on telescopes of virtually any aperture and easily moved between a variety of scopes. This version of the Quantum is designed for professional research-grade users which require tight tolerances and improved quality. To accomplish this, Daystar improves homogeneity and onband transmitance values across the substrate surface, so these filters require additional quality control steps, as well as additional fabrication and testing times.

The filter comes calibrated for the H-alpha wavelength at 6562.8Å and using the electronic tuning system, which is accurate to 0.1Å, the wavelength can be offset as much as 1.0Å in either direction for Doppler shift compensation and to highlight specific areas. The Quantum is outfitted with an RS-232 serial port that allows it to be connected to a computer and enables remote viewing of the wavelength display and control of the tuning. It runs on 12 VDC power and comes with a 6' power cord and a set of international outlet plugs for US, EU, UK, and Australia.
