How to measure your telescope

The Orion 7.5" ID Safety Film Solar Filter is made with high-quality Safety Solar Film, which is made specifically for safe observation of the Sun through a telescope. Using this streak-free and blister-free film filter is an affordable and safe way to observe sunspots, solar eclipses and planetary transits of our Sun. When using the filter installed on a telescope, you'll see the Sun in its natural color.

Don't miss out on the fun of observing solar activity and get an affordable Orion Safety Film Solar Filter!

This Orion white-light solar filter is designed to see sunspots and granulation around the sun spots on the solar disk. It is not a Hydrogen-alpha filter which shows prominence and solar flare detail. For that type of solar viewing, consider upgrading to a Coronado Solar Telescope.

This solar filter is designed and manufactured in the USA.

Orion assures that all solar filters are tested at specialized labs that are accredited to verify compliance with the ISO 12312-2 safety specifications for solar viewing.

CAUTION: Never look at the Sun, either directly or through a telescope, without a professionally made protective solar filter installed that completely covers the front of the instrument, or permanent eye damage could result.
