Watch it come to life
Eclipse Shades® Solar Filter – Our Black Polymer Solar Filters are a low cost alternative to our aluminum cell and glass filters. They have been designed with quality and cost in mind. They can be used on telescopes, binoculars, cameras and finder scopes. This is the same high quality material you have come to know in our Eclipse Shades® Safe Solar Eclipse Glasses. Unlike other solar filters, our black polymer solar film will provide a more pleasing and natural Yellow-Orange image of the sun. This color also offers more contrast and clarity than other solar films. The advantages of this material is that it is stronger and more durable than other thin film solar filters. The actual filtering properties are protected within the substrate. Patent Pending
How to size a Filter to fit your Telescope or Binoculars:
Your solar filter cell fits over the outside of the telescope or lens holder. This is the same when covering a pair of binoculars or a finder scope. Measure the outside diameter (O.D) of the device and choose the filter size with the inside dimension (I.D.) of the cell larger than the lens holder. Do not choose a filter the same size as your O.D. This will be too tight and not allow room for the felt lining which you will use to tightly fit the filter to your device. Felt tape is included for custom fitting with each filter.
The safety of this product is guaranteed by ensuring the coating has a transmission of 0.001% or less. The R-G solar film, 2+ Solar Glass Filter and Black Polymer is tested before shipment. If the film or filter has arrived damaged it will be replaced free of charge. Do not use any film that shows any form of defect. Please contact us for further return instructions. All solar filters are covered by a limited liability warranty from defects in material and workmanship.
Watch: How to Fit A Solar Filter
Got to try these today and they give a nice yellow/orange view of the sun through my binoculars. Can't say enough about customer service, it was top notch. R.S. went above and beyond. Deal with confidence.
The filter arrived well packaged and undamaged. At first I wasn't sure where the spacing felt was located, but found it was wrapped on the inside of the filter. The filter was easy to install on my Galileoscope and I was able to view the sun on a cloudy day. I'm hoping for clearer skies soon so I can view some sun spots. I took a picture with my phone and may invest in a smartphone holder to improve images.
