The Best Solar Filters
Whether you’re an astronomy enthusiast, a student, or a professional, studying the sun can be a breathtaking experience you’ll remember for years to come. However, direct solar viewing without proper eye protection can be very harmful to your vision. Any time you want to witness a solar eclipse, or study sunspots on the surface of our closest star, always put safety first.
For guaranteed safe direct solar viewing, pair your favorite telescope, binoculars, camera, or finder scope with one of the best solar filters on the market: the Black Polymer 101mm Solar Filter from Rainbow Symphony.
How Our Solar Filters Stand Apart
Our solar filters are the best on the market because they’re designed with quality and low cost in mind. Made from our exclusive scratch-resistant, grade five optical density Black Polymer, each solar filter is designed to filter out 100% of ultraviolet and infrared light, as well as 99.999% of intense visible light, for guaranteed safe solar viewing.
Unlike other solar films on the market, our filters provide a natural yellow-orange image of the Sun that is both high in contrast and clarity. All of our Black Polymer 101mm Solar Filters are durable, CE Certified, meet the standard for ISO 12312-2:2015, and meet the transmission requirements of scale 12-16 of EN 169/1992.
Find the Right Solar Filter for Your Needs
Our solar filters are designed to fit on the outside of your telescope or binoculars. To find the right solar filter for your needs, measure the outside diameter of your viewing device and choose the filter that has an inside dimension slightly larger than your device’s outside diameter. If our 101mm Solar Filter is not compatible with your device, feel free to browse through our other options. To ensure a snug fit, felt tape is included with each purchase.
For the best solar filters, always shop Rainbow Symphony.
Excellent filter, great service, and fantastic delivery on mailing item.
As with every other product I've ever purchased from Rainbow Symphony, I couldn't be happier. They deal in quality products and deliver in a timely manner. I've made several purchases from them over the years and am always pleased. I wish they made a filter "cap" slightly larger - I ordered the 101mm based on a newly-purchased-but-not-delivered-yet lens' cap size (95mm) assuming the extra mm would be enough to compensate for the true outer diameter... boy was I wrong. My bad but I'm going to make it work!
Low price but quality of the paper frame holding filter is low. I wish frame holding filter was higher.
I had been looking for a white light solar filter for quite some time and one that wouldn't break the bank and this one fit the bill perfectly. It provides a very pleasant color to the Sun and one that is more realistic than other white light filters. It provides a clear crisp image and with enough magnification it even began to show granularity on the solar surface. I would be happy to pay twice as much for a filter this good.
its a great price but would improve on the material used to make the "ring". ie plastic or metal.
