    Description

    With the Skywatcher 114mm Solar Filter for Reflector Telescopes , you will be able to observe the sun and view all solar phenomenas safely. With the optical performance of high quality plane-parallel glass filters, this solar filter allows you to see the details in sunspots, bright faculae near the limb and the mottled areas known as granules. Both sides of the film’s surface are covered in metal coatings, providing color balance to the user from edge to edge. The German National Bureau of Standards have declared that the Baader Astro Solar film safe for direct solar viewing.

    The Skywatcher Solar Filter needs to be placed firmly and securely over the front of your telescope. Once attached, the film will only allow 0.001% of the visible light through to your telescope whilst the other 99.999% will be reflected away. These filters enable the safe viewing of our Sun by decreasing the harmful ultraviolet rays in Sun light. They are durable if handled with care.
     
    For use with the following Telescope Models: SkyWatcher 114mm Newtonian telescopes, SkyWatcher Refractor telescopes and Saxon Refractor telescopes

    When you receive your solar filter, check to ensure that your film is not damaged or torn. For more solar viewing tips, click here.

    The solar filter works perfectly as expected from Ozscopes. Delivery was prompt.
    Note: Would've been nice if the filter was supplied with a protective case considering cost of replacement & ease with which the mylar film could be damaged which would not only render the filter unusable but also dangerous to use. Of course this is a problem for the maker to rectify not Ozscopes. Just thought it worth mentioning. (Made a suitable case out of a PC cd storage case.)
