    Default Quark Chromosphere ordered



    Well I finally broke down and ordered a Quark Chromosphere from High Point Scientific. They didn't have any UV/IR cut filters so I ordered one from Agena.

    The Quark should be here Monday. Without the UV/IR I will only use it on the ST80 until I get the filter.

    I will be very interested to see how it compares to my Lunt 50 DS
