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.

Photograph sunspots, surface granulation, eclipses and planetary transits with your telephoto lens and the StarGuy 77mm Thread-in White-Light Solar Filter. These filters display the sun in a neutral white color without the red or blue tinting common in many glass and film filters. Made of a tear-resistant solar-viewing film, it is coated on both sides to eliminate the effects of pinholes while the intentional wrinkles improve image contrast and will not affect image quality or safety. The filter ring is made of a durable and lightweight aluminum alloy coated with a reflection-limiting anodized finish. This version of the solar filter has threads that allow it to thread onto the front of 77mm lenses. For the safety of your eyes and equipment, never look or point the camera directly at the sun through a lens without proper solar filters as permanent damage to the gear and your eyes will occur.

    77mm Thread-in White-Light Solar Filter is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Massively overpriced, no protective case It's basically Baader Astrosolar film sandwiched in between a 77mm step-down adapter and some kind of larger housing. The OD is about 90mm. It's good, you'll get a decent image if your exposure and focus are perfect but to send out a fragile filter like this in a cardboard box is criminal. The only good news is that if you damage it you could probably replace the film yourself but I'm not going to experiment with a month to go until the eclipse. I will need to find some kind of protective case for it before I drag it out to Oregon to shoot the eclipse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protect your eyes and camera sensor during solar eclipse I did read a lot of articles and posts about how to best protect against these blinding rays, and believe this is the best way to go. Prevents light and heat buildup BEFORE the rays get inside your camera. With the testing I have done, I think this method is a best practice for the event.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Purchased this because it is a white light solar filter. Works as advertised, Perfect. I use a white light solar filter on a Dobsonian telescope, great for viewing. Very little color fringing. Love it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It worked well, but it's not worth the price. I bought this instead of the less expensive filters that slip on over the lens thinking that it would be a neutral color, glass filter, but it's just the same film as the less expensive filters sandwiched between the threads and a retainer ring. It worked, I got some good shots of the eclipse, but it seems like a lot of money for a film filter.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from don't think I would buy this again Purchased it because the other one I have makes the sun yellow. It does make the sun appear white but doesn't seem to be any improvement over the yellow one. The one from Thousand Oaks is constructed better and was cheaper.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Packaging is little to be desired I've ordered a 77mm and the 72mm of this filter and the 77mm arrived heavily scratched. This clearly could have been packaged better by the manufacturer.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not recommended Used for solar photography. This filter is of extremely poor quality. It consists of a flimsy film mounted on a cheap plastic threaded ring. The filter arrived poorly mounted with ripples. No case is included. Can I give no stars? For this poor quality, I'd expect the price to be in the $10-15 range.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better Options Exist Bought this to photography the upcoming eclipse. A few test photos seem to indicate that the filter will work as advertised. It is, however, very cheaply made considering the relatively steep price. Filter ring is plastic and the filter itself is a mylar type of film. The filter was not even in a protective case, merely stuffed in a plastic sandwich bag inside a cheap cardboard box that will offer protection from damage.
