Description



The Skywatcher 180mm 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 and produces a natural white image of the sun. The high contrast capability of the film allows images of objects like sun spots and the photosphere to come through in exquisite detail.

The Baader Astro Solar Safety Film performs 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.

The Skywatcher 180mm 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.

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. Baader Astro Solar™ film has also been declared safe for direct solar viewing by the German National Bureau of Standards for eye safety.

Prior to your viewing, ensure that your solar filter is not damaged nor does it have any holes in it. Do not use if the film is not intact! For more solar viewing tips and safety precautions, please click here.

FAQ

Q:
Can the 180 mm solar filter be used on other Maksutov-Cassegrain 180 mm telescopes ?
A:
Unfortunately I cannot guarantee that it will fit other brands of 180mm maksutov-cassegrains. We have tried some of the other filters on different brand telescopes but they sometimes just don't sit right. If it's 180mm it SHOULD fit but I cannot guarantee it sorry. The other thing you can do it purchase the solar film and make one yourself.
