With several TV-102's for sale right now (none of which include solar filters), I thought that perhaps posting in this category would be appropriate:
For Sale: Baader-film Solar Filter for scopes with 4.75" (correction: 4.865") outside tube diameter. It was custom made for my TV-102, and fits snugly and securely around the captive dew shield. It should also fit any of Televue's other 4" refractors that have sliding, captive dew shields.
This filter is made by 43 South Astro Products (see their web site for more details). It consists of Baader film mounted in a laquered hardwood cell, which is lined with felt to provide a snug, non-marring fit. Overall, the filter is in excellent condition. Close inspection reveals a couple of tiny smudges on the inside surface, but they do not seem to affect image quality in any way. As with all Baader-film filters, the solar image is bright white, with excellent contrast and resolution of sunspots and bright faculae. The original felt-lined box & instructions are included.
Purchased new, this filter would cost $70 plus shipping. Mine is in excellent condition for $45.00, with CONUS shipping included.
I will mail the filter within one business day of receiving a money order or cashier's check. I will also accept personal checks, but will delay shipment for one week to give them time to clear the bank. Sorry, no international shipments. Please email me with any other questions. Thanks!
