Orion UltraView 10x50 Binoculars
Orion UltraView 10x50 Wide-Angle Binoculars are the ultimate in eyeglass- and sunglass-friendly binoculars! Their extra-long 22mm eye relief allows the full field of view to be seen with eyeglasses on, simply by retracting the twist-lock rubber eyecups. UltraView binoculars are also long on optical quality. UltraViews feature the finest BAK-4 glass prisms, and lenses finely ground and polished to exacting specifications. All lens and prism air-to-glass surfaces are fully multi-coated, providing much higher light transmission than can be achieved with the standard coatings offered on most other binoculars. Colors are pure and images are tack-sharp right out to the edges. The large center focus wheel allows quick focusing with just a fingertip.
2.54" ID Set of Orion E-Series Solar Filters for Binoculars
Once installed on 50mm binoculars, these E-Series Solar Filters display the Sun in a pleasing, natural yellow-orange color unlike the unnatural blue shade cast by some other types of filters. The yellow-orange image of the Sun yields high levels of contrast and clarity for sharp solar views. The lightweight, yet rigid cardboard solar filter housings feature an inside diameter (ID) of 2.54", which means they fit binoculars whose objective lens barrels have an outer diameter between 2.38"-2.5" (60.3mm-63.5mm). Their 2.54" inside diameter makes these solar filters a perfect fit when installed on Orion 10x50 UltraView binoculars.
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.
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.
Warning: Never look directly at the Sun through binoculars — even for an instant — without professionally made solar filters that completely cover the front lenses of the instrument, or permanent eye damage could result.
