DayStar Combo Quark H-Alpha Chromosphere Filter Explained:

  • Purpose: The DayStar Combo Quark H-Alpha Solar Chromosphere Filter is specifically designed to observe the chromosphere of the sun. The "Combo" aspect of this filter indicates that it combines different components (adapters, snouts, and Daystar hydrogen alpha filter) into one assembly. 
  • Chromosphere: The chromosphere is a layer of the Sun's atmosphere above the photosphere and is characterized by features like prominences, spicules, and fibrils.
  • Use: The DayStar Combo Quark H-Alpha Solar Chromosphere Filter provides a focused view of the chromosphere, allowing observers to study features like spicules, filaments, and other dynamic events that occur in this layer. 

Designed for SCTs, Maks, or Refractors with focal ratios ranging from F/15 to F/30, users can rest assured that there's no need to fuss with complex configurations. Simply insert it into your diagonal, add an eyepiece, and start observing.
