Eclipse Shades® Solar Filter – Our Baader Aluminized Mylar 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. Unlike other solar filters, the Baader aluminized mylar solar film will provide a clear white image of the sun.
How to size a Filter to fit your Telescope or Binoculars:
Your solar filter cell fits over the outside of the telescope or lens holder. This is the same when covering a pair of binoculars or a finder scope. Measure the outside diameter (O.D) of the device and choose the filter size with the inside dimension (I.D.) of the cell larger than the lens holder. Do not choose a filter the same size as your O.D. This will be too tight and not allow room for the felt lining which you will use to tightly fit the filter to your device. Felt tape is included for custom fitting with each filter.
The safety of this product is guaranteed by ensuring the coating has a transmission of 0.001% or less. If the film or filter has arrived damaged it will be replaced free of charge. Do not use any film that shows any form of defect. Please contact us for further return instructions. All solar filters are covered by a limited liability warranty from defects in material and workmanship.
