      5.0 Lumicon Single Polarizer 1.25in

      Pros:

      Schott-Hoya optical glass

      Cons:

      I have not found any cons as of yet

      Comments:

      This is a great filter for lunar and planetary viewing. But the main use I have for the Lumicon Single Polarizer 1.25" filter is in my Herschel solar wedge. It is just right for safe viewing after the solar light is attenuated by the ND filter and wedge prism. Build quality is excellent.

      Note: Do not view the sun without the proper filtration. Never let children around telescopes, binoculars, or other optical devices with out responsible adult supervision.
