Baader solar filter ASTF200
ASTF – Baader Solar Filter for all high-end Telescopes (Refractors, Reflectors, CATs)
This family of solar filters is made in the most elaborate way. AstroSolar must not be put under stress, neither during mounting of the film, nor during any temperature change. For this reason the ASTF-Filter features a temperature compensated cell. The film itself is repeatably cemented onto an injection molded ring, whereas the substrate of that ring has the same thermal expansion like the AstroSolar Filter material itself. This free floating film-carrier ring is held onto the aluminum frame with the help of another holding ring made of fiber reinforced plastic – for a maximum of security against breakage of the cell. This temperature compensated cell enables the AstroSolar filter material to retain its excellent optical quality at any temperature – be it -30°C or +50°C
The ASTF200 is made for télescope of 8 inches aperture.
