DayStar ION 0.8 H-Alpha Solar Filter - Discontinued

DayStar ION H-Alpha Solar Filter Features

What's new in the solar h-alpha observing world? It's the DayStar ION, a new breed of filter designed for rear mounting on your refractor, Schmidt-Cassegrain or Maksutov telescope! It's easy to use single knob design moves in 0.1 increments, while an LED indicator light let's you know when the filter is on-band or setting to temperature.

Astrophotographers will love the new ION. Dual MagLev (Magnetic LeDayStarvvitation) fans for increased cooling capacity have no visually detectable vibration - and that means crisp, clean images with far less trouble. It also accepts standard Quantum plates, providing mounting to T-thread, SCT thread, or 2" drawtube, for use with eyepieces or cameras.

The DayStar ION was created to replace the T-Scanner and according to DayStar employees, It is so much easier to use than the T-Scanner and is the most user friendly filter we have made to date!
