The Skywatcher 127mm Solar Filter for Maksutov Telescopes enables observation of the sun and solar phenomena. It attaches to the front of the scope and provides ample filtering to make the sun safe for viewing. The high quality Baader film significantly reduces the intensity of the sunlight while producing a natural white image of the sun. The image has very high levels of contrast enabling the observer to see finer details of the corona and sun spots.
The Baader Astro Solar™ Safety Film performs just as well as high quality plane-parallel glass filters. Metallic coatings are uniformly distributed along both sides of the film’s surface producing excellent color balance from edge to edge. Completely safe and durable. The film transmits 1/100,000 of visible light (.001%) while reflecting (blocking) 99.999%of unwanted light. The film significantly decreases harmful ultraviolet rays and infrared light.
The Skywatcher 127mm Solar Filter, allows you to see the details in sunspots, bright faculae near the limb and the mottled areas known as granules. These filters enable the safe viewing of our sun. The sun is one of the most interesting objects in the sky and its details can only unlocked when viewed safely through a solar film.
