Interesting Ha filter and scope builds...

For those who can't decide if there's not enough day, or not enough night!

*** WARNING ***

Do not EVER look directly at the Sun through a telescope or in any other way, unless you have the proper filters and have been educated in their proper use. This can cause INSTANT eye damage, and remember, you only get ONE pair of eyes!

Hi all, found this website about solar scope building.
http://www.considine.net/dgroski/

And the ebay page with the filters etc on it, all looks very interesting.

Optical Interferen​ce Filter 656.3 H Alpha 0.1nm Pair for $225 (about £130gbp) + shipping.

And if your building a Rover Mars lander he has filters for them aswell....
