Study the Sun safely with this combination of E-Series Solar Filters and the popular Orion Scenix 7x50 binocular. With the white-light solar filters installed, this combo lets you safely explore the Sun at 7x magnification to see sunspots and other solar phenomena. When you don't want to look at the Sun, just remove the E-Series Solar Filters from the 7x50 binocular and use it without filters to explore daytime vistas and starry skies.
Orion Scenix 7x50 Binoculars
The Orion Scenix 7x50 binocular is wonderful for binocular astronomy as well as for scenic daytime viewing and hunting. Its bright 7mm exit pupil and very wide 7.1° field of view let you enjoy scenic vistas in comfort. The 7x50 Scenix binocular weighs 28 oz. for easy portability. Its housing is constructed of sturdy metal, not plastic, and is armored with protective rubber which is a joy to grip. Every single air-to-glass surface of each binocular is antireflection coated, and the objective lenses are even multi-coated for additional light transmission and bright pleasing views.
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 7x50 Scenix 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.
