Fixing Baader-U with crack

So I just bought a 2" Baader-U with a crack for £35 which I am rather pleased with CONSIDERING THE BLOODY THINGS COST NORTH OF £250 NEW! Shout over :) So it has the tiniest of tiny cracks, barely visible in this (terrible phone) photo: http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/userpix/1913_filterbroken_...

Not really. Macro means different things to different people - there's the stacking crowd, the butterfly crowd, the insect crowd, the microscopy crowd, each of these are different disciplines and no one site covers everything in a biblical manner. That said there are good sites out there that cover ...

Small thing, but one thing to watch out for is how noisy they are, this can get irritating.

I have a cheap and cheerful Chinese one and it's perfectly good, but makes a ton of noise.

I replaced the internal fan with a $50 one and this did the trick

I'm with Enrico on this - sites like pm.net have photomacrography covered really well and if you want to learn basic macro, there are plenty of books and sites around. Those books tend to be ok but they're usually aimed at beginners so you do have the problem of attracting the more experienced macro...
