    Default Today at our local star party... some scope Pr0n 3 solar scopes



    Holy Solar Batman! What you see here are:

    1. A Lunt 60mm Double Stack
    2. Explore Scientific 127mm with a CaK filter
    3. Explore Scientific 127mm with a Hershel wedge

    All riding on a Losmandy G11

    Hitting all three spectrum choices in one go!
