Baader Herschel Prism vs Solar film

In this post I will show images taken with Baader Solar film from before, as well as ones taken with the Baader Herschel Prism. The question is how different (or better) is the Baader Herschel Prism compared to the Baader Solar film in showing detail of the sun.

These were taken with the Olympus E-PL5, Skywatcher ED80, Baader Solar film and Baader Solar continuum filter. Previously I thought these were pretty impressive results.

These are taken with Olympus E-PL5, Skywatcher ED80, Baader Herschel prism, Celestron Ultima 1.25″ 2X APO barlow, Baader Solar continuum, ND 3.0 filter.

I do think there is more detail in the sun spots, as well as picking up some of the granularity of the sun with the Baader Herschel prism.

Conclusion:

The Baader Solar film works great for imaging of sun spot, but the Baader Herschel Prism takes it to a whole new level.
