SkyWatcher Solar Filter For Refractor Telescopes
If you want to observe and study the Sun safely, you better arm yourself with the SkyWatcher Solar Filter for Telescope. It works by lowering the intensity of the Sun light and by deflecting the harmful Sun rays away, allowing the user to conduct safe solar observations.
The Baader Astro Solar Safety Film performs optically similar to high quality plane-parallel glass filters. The Baader solar film produces a natural white image of the photosphere through the metal coatings on both sides of the film. This ensures good colour balance.
The SkyWatcher Solar Filter for Refractor Telescopes, allows you to see the details of sunspots, bright faculae near the limb and the mottled areas known as granules. These filters enable the safe and long duration viewing of our Sun.
When using the Solar Filter, place it securely over the front of your telescope to filter and ensure that the filter will not slip off. The film transmits 0.001% of visible light while blocking the rest. 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.
When you receive your solar filter, check to confirm that your film is not damaged or torn. For more solar viewing tips, click here.
