Lunt White Light Systems

Buy LUNT Solar-Wedge / Herschel-Wedge for refractor-telescopes from our Hertfordshire UK based showroom or online with free mainland UK delivery.

Herschel Wedges / Solar Wedges can be used to observe the sun with refractor telescopes in white light. ~95% of the sun light will be suppressed by the Herschel Wedge. The remaining 5% are dimmed by a fix installed ND3.0 strong gray filter. A polarizing filter can reduce the light to the desired level.
The difference between Herschel Wedges and normal front mounted filters is, that the filtering takes place just before the eyepiece or camera. This will provide a better contrast and sharpness of the solar image.
