Key Features
  • Safe Solar Viewing and Photography
  • For Lenses, Telescopes, and Binoculars
  • 12312-2 ISO-Certified SOLARLITE Film

Utilizing an ingenious spring-folded assembly design to hold it securely in place, the 2-pack of Daystar Filters 50mm White-Light Universal Lens Solar Filters allows you to safely view or photograph the sun and solar eclipses. The ULF is offered here in a 2-pack for safe solar viewing with binoculars, or multiple optics and lenses without having to move the filter. They are made of the 12312-2 ISO-certified SOLARITE film, which blocks more than 99.999% of intense light, plus 100% of harmful IR and UV radiation — revealing sunspots and super granules on the solar surface. Made to fit on the front of camera lenses, telescopes, spotting scopes, binoculars or other optics and imaging devices, this version of the ULF can accommodate housings, sunshades, and dew shields with an outside diameter from 50-69mm (1.96-2.71"). The filter has a clear aperture of 50mm, so vignetting may occur when used on lenses and optics that approach the maximum recommended diameter in the size range.

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.

Works as advertised

It is inexpensive and gets the job done. For the number of times I'm going to use it, this is much better than a more expensive one.

Worked wonderfully.

Easy to form up, and it worked perfectly for photographing the eclipse.

I would buy this again, for the 2024 eclipse

I was able to safely capture several pictures of the 2017 eclipse using this filter. I couldn't figure out how to fold them correctly and so I asked my son to give it a try. He was able to get them folded correctly.

I would buy this product, or others, from this company.

Used this product to take pictures of the Eclipse. Worked great, easy to assemble, i.e. fold pieces up and attach to one another to make a circular piece that fits over camera lens. Took some amazing photos of the Eclipse, even thought we were not in a 100% totality area. We were on vacation at the time, staying on Ozark Lake. We had about 98% totality there. Had we stayed home, we would have had 100% totality for several minutes (near Smoky Mountains). Oh well . . . .

a simple solution for a reasonable price

Simple to assemble, simple to use. Fits my 7 X 50 binoculars perfectly.

Way too Dense for Camera use

I used one of these on my camera for the solar eclipse and it was too dense. With the full sun and zoomed in, I had to set the lens to wide open and second. They're a good density for binoculars since they don't have f-stops or shutters.

Better than I expected

I used this for the total eclipse of 2017. Kept on the entire time, then found it had burned hole in my shutter. I contacted the manufacturer to ask them to reimburse me for the cost of repair, which was over $300 , and crickets.... no response. Irresponsible company

question

Seems pretty straight forward. I assume the filter would fit either my 18-55 (kit lens) or 55-200. Is the filter pretty easy to take on and off? (so I can take pictures without the filter when the moon is completely covering the sun)
Asked by: Mark H.
You don't want to take it off when in full eclipse, that is also bad for camera. Adjust settings. Easy to remove. If you want pictures of your surroundings, maybe use a second camera?

question

Will this fit my nikkor 70-300?
Asked by: Mikaela M.
Probably . The cardboard tabs can be adjusted and yeah you can use tape or something, but here's the thing. Once the totality starts, you are going to want that filter off fast. The totality only lasts at best a couple of minutes. You wanna miss that monkeying around with tape?. Your lens will be pointed almost straight up, so let gravity help you and just make whatever you put on loose enough to take off quickly. This is a once in a lifetime deal. Don't mess up your chance to capture it.

question

What is the neutral density or f/stop number of the DayStar filter?
Asked by: Trevor J.
I do not know - nothing in the documentation or on the product answers this question. I agree with David R's estimate (1 divided by 2, divided by 2, etc. 15 times (f-stops) gives you 0.0000152. Divide that by 1.5 f-stops yields 0.0000101 (1/1000 of 1%) for 16.5 f-stops. (=1/(2^16.5) = 0.0000108 in Excel).
