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.

MrStarGuy SGFT043C overview

  • 1Description

Use Mr. Star Guy's 165-195mm Adjustable Objective White Light Solar Filter to adapt your nighttime refractor telescope to safely view the sun, and on camera lenses without front filter threads or when conventional screw-on filters are unavailable. Outfitted with three thumbscrews for a secure and centered fit, this filter is designed to fit over the entire objective bell so for the correct fit simply measure the outside diameter of the bell — including hardware like retaining rings and screw heads — and choose the size that matches the measurement with some extra room. This model is made to fit objective bells measuring 165-195mm (6.496-7.677").

EN 1836:2005 + A1:2007 certified for safe direct solar viewing, the filter blocks greater than 99.99% of the intense visible white light from the sun plus 100% of harmful ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) radiation. The filter is made of a durable acrylic resin that delivers high-contrast images of the Sun with a neutral color balance revealing the Sun in white, as opposed to the more common red or blue seen when viewing through other solar filters, which restricts bands of the visual spectrum and inhibits clear viewing. The filter housing is made of a lightweight and durable aluminum alloy with a scratch-resistant anodized finish.

    MrStarGuy SGFT043C reviews

    Adjustable Objective White Light Solar Filter (165-195mm OD) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Optically Clean & Works Extremely Well I purchased the Solar Filter to use with my 800mm Canon lens specifically for the upcoming eclipse. The filter comes in a clear Ziploc bag and fits over my lens hood, it uses three screws to gently grip the hood itself. The actual material the filter is made of is a light aluminum like metal that feels soft and is very reflective. Despite the material handling like foil it produces a very clean optical image with no notable distortion. I purchased a pelican case 1400 to keep the filter safe from harm since it is very delicate (or at least feels that way). So far I can't say anything negative, I'm very pleased with the product and have attached some sample images showing it in use and the result.
