Hi,
I've recently bought the Baader Herschel prism, to see if I could get better details of the sun in white light. The link is to the unboxing and first images I managed to get of the sun.
Herschel prism in its case:

I used a Skywatcher ED80 refractor. You do not need any solar film in front of the scope, as 96% of the light goes to the ceramic tile which dissipates the heat. The remaining 4% is directed to the Baader Solar continuum which needs to be the filter closest to the prism, as it will reflect most (but not all) of the IR away and prevent most of the heat getting through to the eye piece or imaging system. Hence it is fairly safe. But it is not for use with reflectors though.
