    Default Solar visual glass filter



    I have searched for with no luck for a 5 5/8" can be also 5.5" glass solar
    filter. Does anyone know where I can get just the glass filter w/o the cell
    in Canada?

    It seems everyone sells the filters with the cells and I am not sure if they
    come out of the cells w/o damaging them.

    Thanks in advance...

    You can't use Baader film?

    If it's that critical, buy a 6" and have a glass shop cut it for you.

    I have had Thousand Oaks custom cut pieces of filter glass for me in the
    past. They were happy to accommodate me. I now prefer Baader filter material
    because the images are better. Either way what you need is only a phone call
    (and credit card #) away.

    I can use Baader film! but I never asked that? Funny you should say that
    though...I just made a Baader astro film off-axis cell today. Can't wait to
    try it now.

    I only want to replace the old glass on my cell. I like the orange sun, but
    that's just me.

    I don't want to modify the cell for the glass filter. Or get some glass shop
    here to cut a 3/8" off a 6" round piece. But a 5.5" to 6" would do, without
    having to modify this cell much.

    The problem is...where can you get "Just the Glass in Canada?"

    Thanks Bill, I emailed Thousand Oaks a few days ago with no response yet so
    I will phone. I just don't like the custom charges we get here in Canada. I
    got my 12.5" mirror re-coated in the states and customs on this end soaked
    me. I try to buy in Canada now if I can.
