Who said you have to be in the dark to enjoy astronomy? Turning your pair of binoculars to the Sun is fun and educational. Watch the march of giant sunspots, the clouds of glowing vapor in the photosphere, and solar "granulation" detail. But be sure to protect your precious vision with a safe Orion Full Aperture glass Solar Filter Set for Binoculars! Looking at the Sun without a set, even for an instant, can permanently damage your eyes.
These full-aperture optical glass binocular filters deliver superb, white-light views of the Sun, without risk to your eyes. While more expensive than Mylar or film filters, Orion glass solar filters provide better contrast, a more pleasing and natural yellow-orange color, and are more durable. They are ideal to use with your binoculars for safe views of our Sun.
The glass filter elements are machine-ploished and triple-coated with an advanced nickel-chromium stainless steel alloy for a scratch-resisitant surface. The filter passes only a fraction of the incoming light, rejecting harmful ultraviolet and infrared radiation.
Each filter is mounted in an aluminum cell that slide-fits over the front objective lenses of your binoculars. Three nylon thumbscrews can be tightened to ensure a safe, snug fit to the front of your binoculars. The thumbscrews complement the press-fit foam lining inside the durable aluminum filter cell. A tight friction-fit is still required for safe solar viewing through a pair of binoculars.
