Features & Highlights:
- Ultra-Precision Wavelength Control for Academic Studies: The DayStar Quantum 2Å PE Solar Filter is engineered to provide precise control over the Calcium II K-Line emissions at an ultra-fine 2.0Å wavelength. This level of accuracy is particularly well-suited for academic purposes, especially in studies involving the mapping of the 3-dimensional structure of the Chromosphere.
- Ideal Application for CCD Photography and Indoor Visual Viewing: Tailored to meet the rigorous demands of academic research, this filter excels in applications involving CCD photography and indoor visual viewing environments. It ensures that researchers can obtain high-quality data with confidence and accuracy.
- In-Depth Chromospheric Studies: DayStar's Quantum controls on the Calcium II K line allow for meticulous mapping and examination of the 3-dimensional structure of the Chromosphere. By precisely controlling the wing shift of the Ca II K line filter, accurate to 0.1Å, researchers can discern intensity variations between the K3, K2, and K1 lines. This capability offers a deeper understanding of the intricate structure of subordinate peaks, providing insights into different levels within the solar atmosphere.
- Instrumental in Determining Solar Atmosphere Depth: University research has traditionally relied on the Calcium K line for its pivotal role in studying Calcium activity on the Sun. This line of research has been instrumental in accurately determining the depth of the solar atmosphere, making the DayStar Calcium K-line Quantum Filter a vital tool for academic investigations.
- Dual Absorption Lines for Comprehensive Analysis: Calcium exhibits two robust absorption lines at 393.3nm and 396.9nm, known as the K and H lines respectively. These lines are crucial for comprehensive analysis and understanding of Calcium activity on the Sun.
- Optimized for Visual Observations with High Contrast Violet Color: The Calcium K line's proximity to the visual spectrum ensures that it is easier to observe, especially in high contrast violet color. This feature is invaluable for researchers and observers seeking clear and vivid visual representations of Calcium activity.
- Proven Effectiveness in Leading Observatories: Notably, renowned observatories like the Dutch Open Telescope have achieved exceptional results by employing the Ca II H line for their imaging purposes. This attests to the filter's efficacy and reliability in producing high-quality solar observations, highlighting its standing as a trusted tool in the field of solar research.
