Q6: Is this a glass filter for a Meade 12 SCT. Karl
A: Baader solar filters were once made of optical glass, but are no longer. How they're made of a high-strength, polymer film that's ion-implanted and metallized. Each side of the film is coated to guard against pinholes. The polymer filters are considered better than the coated glass filters of just a few years ago.
