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.

Designed and engineered for portability and versatility, the Meade Instruments EclipseView 114mm f/4 AZ Reflector Telescope can be used for conventional nighttime viewing or, with the simple installation of the included filter, solar and solar eclipse observation. The full-spectrum white light filter fits on the front of the optical tube (OTA) and allows for safe viewing of sunspots, granulations, planetary transits, and all phases of solar eclipses. With the filter removed, the EclipseView can be used to view celestial subjects such as the Moon, planets, comets, and meteor showers.

To find subjects fast, and to make star-hopping navigation faster, Meade includes a wide-field red-dot finder; and for safe centering of the Sun in the field of view, they also provide a Sun Finder finderscope. The OTA is attached to a manual single-arm alt-azimuth tabletop base that smoothly swivels a full 360° to allow viewing from horizon to horizon in any direction. To get users viewing right out of the box, Meade provides two eyepieces that produce low and high magnifications, and its drawtube will accept any other optional 1.25" accessory such as eyepieces, Barlow lenses, astrophotography adapters, and imaging systems.

    EclipseView 114mm f/4 AZ Reflector Telescope with Solar Filter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good little scope Great solar filter. In fact I bought this scope before the eclipse because I wanted a solar filter for my 86 mm Zeiss Diascope 9 days before the eclipse and they were sold out everywhere. So I ended up with a good filter and a nice 4.5 Dobsonian. I used the filter on my spotting scope with great results before and on the day of the eclipse. The scope is very good for the money. The primary mirror and images are very good. The focuser is adequate.The mount is very nice. I used the scope at night recently and had nice views of Saturn and M13. Worth the money.
