    Good filter for the price - Review by
    Overall Score
    80
    Filter is bonded to a flat circle for easy handling and supplied with a cap to fit over the end of the telescope. It's a bit large for my 80mm spotting scope, but easily held in place with duct tape. Sunspots are easily resolved but other solar features need very clear skies. Makes for very comfortable solar viewing
