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.

Celestron 94243 overview

  • 1Description

Adapt your conventional nighttime Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope (SCTs) to safely view the sun with Celestron's EclipSmart White-Light Solar Filter. Designed specifically for select 6" models in their catalog, the filter ring is modeled on the scope's original lens cap for a safe and snug fit. For enhanced safety, the filter comes with two touch-fastener straps and four tabs that adhere to the filter and OTA to make sure the filter doesn't accidentally come off.

Made of a proprietary Mylar film, the filter is ISO 12312-2 compliant for safe solar viewing, blocking 99.999% of intense light across the entire visible spectrum and 100% of harmful ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) radiation; resulting in high-contrast views of the sun in a neutral color. At just 2.6 ounces, the filter will provide the safety required to observe the sun and all phases of a solar eclipses without adding significant weight to the front of your OTA.

    Celestron 94243 reviews

    EclipSmart White-Light Solar Filter for 6" SCTs is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit for my 6"sct scope While I would have preferred to get a glass filter, the cost was incredibly high. This filter is every bit as good as the glass filters I have used but is a fraction of the cost. It is made of Mylar material. With a bit of TLC the filter will last as long as the telescope. It fits as tight as the dust filter and is perfect for viewing sun spots and photography.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solar filter works Perhaps not as solid as some other filters for twice the price, this solar filter worked for me. It has a plastic ring with mylar glued to the opening. Includes two Velcro straps for fastening onto your telescope or telephoto lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product. Easy and fit well on my Celestron Scope. Was able to take some amazing shots of the Solar Eclipse 2017. Glad I was able to get one in time.
