DayStar Quark H-Alpha Chromosphere Filter Explained:

  • Purpose: The DayStar Quark H-Alpha Solar Chromosphere Filter is primarily designed for observing and imaging the solar chromosphere in the H-alpha spectral line. This filter typically provides a narrow bandpass centered around the H-alpha wavelength (around 656.3 nanometers). It enhances the visibility and contrast of features in the chromosphere, allowing for detailed observations and imaging.
  • Chromosphere: The Chromosphere is the layer of the Sun's atmosphere just above the photosphere, and it contains various dynamic and intricate features like spicules, filaments, and plage regions.
  • Use: Astronomers and solar enthusiasts use the DayStar Quark H-Alpha Solar Chromosphere Filter with solar telescopes to capture high-resolution images and study the chromospheric structures and activities on the solar disk. 

Designed for use with refractors ranging from F/4 to F/9, the DayStar QUARK H-Alpha Solar Chromosphere Filter eliminates the need for complex configurations. Simply insert it into your diagonal, add an eyepiece, and start observing.
