DayStar Quantum Hydrogen Alpha 0.3Å PE Solar Filter - .3QPE
Introducing the DayStar Quantum Hydrogen Alpha 0.3Å PE Solar Filter, optimized for capturing the Hydrogen Alpha line.
Compatible with refractors, SCTs, and Maksutovs, this kit includes front and rear plates, a power supply, detailed instructions, and a sturdy protective case.
Achieving peak performance necessitates the addition of an ERF or UV/IR cut filter, along with a Powermate Barlow or a stop-down mask, both available separately, to attain an optimal focal ratio range of F/27-F/35.
Features & Highlights:
- Precision Quantum Housing: The Quantum housing is meticulously engineered to cater to the specific needs of contemporary solar astronomers. It combines a range of essential features with additional innovations to enhance the overall user experience.
- Effortless Operation: Operating the filter is incredibly straightforward. Simply plug it in, and an easily discernible green indicator light illuminates to confirm that the filter is in its onband state.
- Live LCD Readout: The housing incorporates a live LCD display that provides a real-time readout of the filter's wavelength output. This information is exceptionally accurate, with measurements displayed down to an impressive 0.1Å, ensuring precise observations and studies.
- Wavelength Tuning for Doppler Studies: The Quantum housing is equipped with red and blue wing shift buttons. These buttons allow for meticulous tuning of the wavelength, a critical feature for conducting Doppler studies with the utmost accuracy.
- Versatile Power Source: The unit can operate seamlessly on 12VDC, making it suitable for use in the field or when powered by a battery. This flexibility ensures that the filter can be used in a variety of settings and environments.
- Comprehensive Power Supply Package: Included with the Quantum housing is a comprehensive power supply package. This package comprises a power supply compatible with a wide range of voltages (100-240V) and features adapter wall plates for US, European, UK, and Australian outlets, providing global compatibility.
- Computer Control Capability: The Quantum housing incorporates a serial port, enabling seamless computer control. This feature facilitates the on-screen display of filter readouts, allowing for convenient and efficient data collection and analysis.
- Streamlined Body Design for Easy Operation: The Quantum Series features a newly designed body style that prioritizes user-friendliness and operational simplicity. This design element ensures that users can navigate and utilize the filter with ease.
- SE Grade Series for Amateur and Academic Use: The Quantum SE grade series is tailored to meet the needs of most amateur astronomers and some academic applications. These filters adhere rigorously to DayStar's stringent quality control standards and are suitable for both visual and select photographic environments.
- PE Grade Series for Professional Research: The Quantum PE grade series is specifically designed for professional research studies requiring the highest levels of precision in homogeneity and onband transmittance values across the substrate surface. These filters undergo additional rigorous quality control measures, as well as extended fabrication and testing processes, ensuring they meet the highest standards for accuracy and reliability.
