Sun in Helium D3

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!

Sun in Helium D3

Hi all, been googling again, its a bad habit......
Am I missing something with the Helium D3 solar filters? Been looking at the images on the daystar website and to me they just look like very crisp white light shots.
Personally I don't think I will be spending $15,500 on a filter though.

Or $7000 on a Sodium D filter either....

But on the other hand, if somebody was wondering what to get me for Christmas..... =))
