SAFETY FIRST: Observing the Sun without the proper protection may result in serious personal injury, including permanent eye damage and blindness, and/or damage to equipment. Never point an optic at the sun without an approved solar filter on the front of the optic. For direct solar viewing, viewing the sun through an optic, or when using cameras with an optical viewfinder, ensure your filter is ISO 12312-2 (also written as ISO 12312-2:2015) certified. Never use photographic neutral density filters for direct solar viewing, viewing the sun through an optic, or when using cameras with an optical viewfinder.

Engineered for safe solar observation, the red Lunt Solar System 6x30 White Light mini-SUNoculars Binocular is equipped with CE-certified internal dye objective lens filters with an optical density of five to reduce the Sun's powerful light to a comfortable and safe intensity while also effectively filtering damaging ultra-violet and infrared radiation. Looking at the Sun with this optic transforms our blazing ball of white fire into a pleasant orange color. While the low 6x magnification is not powerful enough to observe events like the transit of Mercury, it is ideal for general solar observation as well as viewing all partial phases of a solar eclipse.

With its small form-factor and 5-ounce weight, the mini-SUNocular will easily fit in most pockets, packs, or bags without weighing you down. A rubberized textured grip provides sure and secure handling, and individually-focusable eyepieces ensure precise focusing by most users. Lunt recommends that this be used by young adults over the age of 13 with parental supervision to prevent permanent eye damage that can occur by observing the sun without the proper protection. The SUNocular is offered here ready to use with a convenient neck strap in clamshell packaging.

    6x30 White Light mini-SUNocular Binocular (Red, Clamshell Packaging) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 38.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for quick-look solar viewing This product performs more or less as advertised. The solar image is sharp, and filtration appears to be optimal. 6x is fairly low magnification, but these will deliver pleasing views of partial phases of solar eclipses and large sunspots groups, especially for those wanting just a quick look. It's probably impossible to find better solar viewing at such a very low price. However, the field of view is fairly narrow; my estimate is no more than 3 degrees. Due to the narrow field of view, it takes some practice to locate the sun quickly. This is especially true while wearing glasses, because the eye relief is not great. But, this is still a very good value for quick-look solar viewing, considering the very low price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from THE PRICE IS RIGHT and THESE SUN OBSERVING BINOCULARS ARE OK I am an experienced astronomer and solar observer and for their purpose and excellent safety for sun observing design and solid good construction these solar binoculars are good. BUT You must remember to get a visual idea of where the sun is and then put the binoc eyepieces up to your eyes. You'l have to slowly hunt around carefully to then find and center the sun in the eyepieces... REMEMBER NEVER EVER NEVER LOOK AT THE SUN DIRECTLY !!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value, though larger ones are nicer These sunoculars are a great value and produce nice images. They are very light weight and I purchased these for my 7 year old son to use. I also purchased a pair of the larger units for myself, and those are of course nicer overall, though cost quite a bit more. The larger units give you a true natural white-light view of the sun, while these smaller ones give you a yellow/orange view. The larger units also have better eye relief and have a better overall build quality. The larger size and higher magnification of the larger units also allow you to see more detail, but these lower power and lighter weight units are easier to hold steady. Also, if you don't plan on extensive solar observing, or have a solar scope and just want something to take a quick peak at the sun to see what is going on, these are a great option. If you are trying to outfit an entire family with solar binoculars for the upcoming August 2017 total eclipse, these will certainly save you a lot of money over several of the larger units.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very pleasant surprise What can you get for $30? An excellent pair of solar binoculars! Images are crisp and detailed; the sun is properly yellow in color; sunspots are clear. I get better resolution from the Lunts than I do from a similar product costing three times as much. An excellent value.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would not buy this product again This item is basically a toy. It is small, think a mini binocular to carry in a pocket. It feels of cheap plastic. Each side focuses independently of the other; there is no diopter adjustment on one side with a central focusing knob in the middle. It is very difficult to adjust the focus while adjusting the IPD to even see the sun. I would not buy this product again, and I wish I hadn't bought it the first time, at least not at this price. If you can live without magnification, of which there is little with this product, invest in a nice pair of solar sunglasses instead, or spend the extra $20 for the Meade binocular with removable solar filters, which I have and which appears to be a worthwhile product for the upcoming eclipse (and I will have a usable binocular the next day).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neat device I thought these solar binoculars would be too cheap at under $30, but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the solar image through them. 6x isn't an overly large magnification, and 30 mm won't give you detailed imaging, but they are fine to see any large sunspots on the solar disc, and saves me the time and trouble of setting up my 8 SCT with solar filter. Excellent product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice little product, maybe overpriced but it is what it is. So these little things are way better than just those glasses you buy. These things does feel like a toy and cheap, but you are buying these because you got a sun to causally look at during a solar eclipse. If i dont lose them, ill probably use them again. Would i recommend them? maybe, something to be said about the feeling of using these while others are using pinhole boxes.
