I love my 15X70mm binoculars with a passion, and I've always wanted to get a hold of someone's leftover Baader material to make a filter. However, I've always put off asking and rationalized it away by thinking "oh - we're well past solar max, I'll go through the trouble of getting the material and it will hardly be worth it for another 6 years". Well, after naked eye sunspot after naked eye sunspot (including two naked eye sunspots visible at the same time!) I've decided that I'm missing the boat here. So....
if any of you out there have enough material left over from making your own Baader solar filter to sell me two 70mm pieces, please let me know. I'll also pay for shipping. I'm sure that after I set up the binoculars with the filter, solar activity will drop dramatically. But I'm sick of missing the boat on these gorgeous sunspots just because I don't have the time to drag out the 10" SCT.
Thanks for considering, and clear skies everyone!
