    Product Description
    The Skywatcher 130mm Solar Filter for Reflector Telescopesallows you to view the sun and solar phenomena safely. It attaches to the front part of your Telescope tube securely and covers the tube opening completely.

    Skywatcher 130mm Solar Filter performs as well as high quality plane-parallel glass filters. Metal coatings are uniformly distributed along both sides of the film’s surface. This ensures good color balance from edge to edge.

    The 130mm 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.

    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. Skywatcher 130mm Solar Filter has also been declared safe for direct solar viewing by the German National Bureau of Standards for eye safety.

    This filter fits perfectly onto my 5" Celestron scope. No adjustments, no fitting problems.
    Clear, stable views of sunspots through the 'scope and also works perfectly well in front of the lens of my DSLR for shots of the eclipse earlier this month, and it's big enough to hold in front of your face to view the sun directly !
    Has almost doubled my use of my telescope ! Good product.
