Experience the Sun in Unprecedented Detail with the Baader Planetarium Herschel Wedge Prism Mk II

Unlock the full potential of solar observation and photography with the Baader Planetarium 2" Herschel Wedge Prism Mk II, a pinnacle of precision engineering for amateur astronomers and seasoned stargazers alike. This innovative solar viewing system is designed to deliver unparalleled clarity and safety, bringing the dynamic surface of the sun into your view with stunning detail.

Key Features:

  • Phantom Group® Anti-Reflective Coating: Each prism features a one-sided coating that minimizes reflections, ensuring optimal light transmission for a clear, sharp image of the sun's surface.
  • Ceramic Solar Finder and ClickLock® Eyepiece Holder: The integration of a ceramic solar finder allows for easy and safe alignment with the sun, while the 2" ClickLock eyepiece holder offers secure and quick eyepiece changes without compromising on precision.
  • Integrated Rotation Mechanism for Polarizing Filters: Adjust brightness seamlessly with an integrated rotation mechanism, tailor-made for polarizing filters. This feature is crucial for both visual observation and solar photography, offering stepless brightness adjustment when used in conjunction with the optional Baader Single Polarizing Filter 2″ and the included Neutral Density Filter.

Enhance Your Viewing Experience:

  • Baader 7.5 nm Solar Continuum Filter 2″ (540nm): Included with every Herschel Wedge Prism, this filter sharpens solar images to an exceptional degree, emphasizing surface details and sunspot contrasts by filtering out specific wavelengths of light.
  • S58 Dovetail and Safety Kerfs: A robust 2" nosepiece featuring an S58 dovetail and safety kerfs ensures a secure fit and peace of mind during observation sessions.
  • New 3-Point Adjustment System: Pre-set at the factory for convenience, this system guarantees that your solar viewing setup is always optimized for the best possible performance.
