I made a post about a DIY filter but just found the solar filter for my C8SCT for about 75cdn including taxes. I currently have the Celestron Powerseeker 80eq with Orion Safety Film Solar filter, what kind of improvement can I expect? Is this decent quality, a good price? The first pic is what I have the second is where I am hoping to be or better with the addition of the filter. I should mention the sun was relatively low in the sky when taking pics as well. Maybe with the right conditions my 80mm Eq is capable of somewhere in between? Any one have pics of the sun through a similar telescope 80mm x 900mm or through the C8sct.
