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.

Has anyone used the 6" filter on a DSLR camera lens? How well did it work and how were the results?
Asked by: Greg
Although it is possible for the EclipSmart White-Light Solar Filter for 6" SCT to be used with a DSLR camera, it is important for the filter to be safely secured to the lens since the size of the filter was not intended to fit a camera lens.
