    For solar white light imaging and white light visual observing. The APM White Light Wedge comes with a built in ND3 filter which allows perfectly safe imaging or visual observing of the Sun

    The function of the Herschel prism (also called Herschelprima) is based on the principle that only a small part (approx. 5%) of the incident light is used for the actual observation. The part, which is incomparably larger and also energetic, is guided through the housing and forms a focal point outside the prism. Even far behind this focal point, the light concentration is still very intense, so that (with older prisms) caution had to be exercised, so that no inexperienced observer would accidentally look into the output light beam.

    The APM Herschel prism is equipped with the ceramic light trap, an multicoated  integrated multicoated ND3 filter and (removable) multicoated  polarizing filter. 

    The sun can be safely observed with the APM Herschel Prism.The image brightness can be adjusted by twisting of the 2 "polarizing filter by rotating the 2" eyepieceholder from  outside  . Thus, the Herschel Prism can be used both visually and also photographically same good!

    The clear optical aperture  is 46mm!

    The use of the Herschel prism (in comparison with film filters) for sun observation is not only more safe , but also of better quality. The image  has more  contrast, imore sharpness  and allow higher magnification. 

    Important note: The application of the Herschel prism is only suitable for refractors and schiefspieglers .

    The Production version has a white body !

    You can estimate the deliver time to your home or business by viewing the "Ships Within" information listed with every product. This refers to the time from when you place your order, to the time it leaves the warehouse.

The diagram below shows how the total delivery time is broken down into pre-ship processing time and shipping time. 

    Processing time is the time it takes from when you submit your order to when the product leaves the warehouse. The "Ships Within" time frame listed with each of our products on the website applies to this time frame. For example, if your order a product that reads "Ships Within: 2 Weeks", this means that the product typically leaves the factory within two weeks. If there will be any additional time required to process your order, we will notify you immediately to confirm the delivery period. This time is needed for products that are shipped to you directly from our manufacturers. The manufacturers need this time to fulfill your order.
