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.

How To Fit My Solar Filter:
The I.D.or inside measurement of the cell slips over and around the O.D or outside measurement of the telescope or binocular tubes.
IMPORTANT: The filter always goes over the end of the device facing the closest to the the sun or the large end...NEVER over the eyepiece that you look through!!! Simply choose the closest outer cell I.D. size larger than the outside diameter measurement of the lens holder. Do not choose a size the same as your O.D. since this will be too tight and not allow room for the felt lining. Felt tape is included for custom fitting.
