For centuries, curious minds have studied the stars above and mused about the mysteries of our universe. However, staring longingly at our own solar system’s star isn’t quite as easy — without proper equipment at least. If you want to study the Sun, Black Polymer Solar Filters from Rainbow Symphony will keep you safe, without sacrificing your viewing quality. Also, because this Black Polymer Solar Filter is ideal for telescopes, binoculars, cameras, and finder scopes, you can use your favorite viewing device for your observations.
- The 3"x3" sheets are designed to fit in most aperture reducer lens cap holes. Simply tape all edges of the sheet of solar film on the inside (flat surface) of the lens cap covering the aperture reducer hole, then keep the lens cap in place and remove only the aperture reducer cap to use for solar viewing.
- The 12"x12" sheet is designed to be trimmed to size in your own solar filter.
Certified for Safety
The Black Polymer Solar Filter for telescopes and other viewing devices is made from the same high quality materials as eclipse glasses, and is a low cost alternative to aluminum cell and glass filters. The lens is made from a premium, scratch-resistant Black Polymer material with grade five optical density, and is designed to filter out all harmful solar radiation (100% of ultraviolet and infrared light, as well as 99.999% of intense visible light). The product is CE Certified, meets the standard for ISO 12312-2:2015, and the transmission requirements of scale 12-16 of EN 169/1992 for safe direct solar viewing.
The Black Polymer Solar film for telescopes are designed to be fit on the outside of your telescope or lens holder. You will need to create your own holder for the film, and trim to size.
When in place, the Black Polymer Solar Filter creates a yellow-orange image of the sun that is sharp, safe, and easy to see.
