Can you see the sun with these during totality? Would they be too dark during totality?
Asked by: Ben
The Celestron 10x42 EclipSmart Solar Binoculars will not be able to see the sun during totality. I would recommend using these non filters binoculars instead: https://bhpho.to/3vgWU3q plus these removeable filters: https://bhpho.to/3FlitRE. This way you can remove the filters for totality and use the binoculars later for normal use.

question

I really need a front screw in so that I can mount this on a tripod. Any ideas?
Asked by: Anonymous
I just mounted mine. Was pretty fast and easy. Just remove the cap in front of the focus ring. It's actually a hybrid mount. Binoculars are mounted to a Joby GorillaPod with bulkhead and the GorillaPod is mounted on my tripod. A little cumbersome, but works.

question

Would you be able to see a transit of Mercury with these?
Asked by: Anonymous
Not likely. I've read 50X or better magnification is needed.
