Alpine Astronomical Baader AstroSolar White-Light Safety Film 5.0 (Eco Size Sheet)
Key Features
  • Front Aperture White-Light Filter Film
  • For Safe Solar Viewing and Photography
  • Use on Scopes, Binoculars, Photo Lenses
  • View Penumbra, Granulation, and Faculae
Specifically designed for photographing and viewing the sun and solar eclipses through an optical device such as telescopes, binoculars, or camera lenses, this 140x155mm sheet of Baader AstroSolar White-Light Safety Film 5.0 from Alpine Astronomical filters the sun's intense light to a safe level and blocks harmful ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) radiation. Viewing through the film reveals solar surface details including penumbral detail, solar granulation, and lighter-colored faculae. The film improves sharpness and contrast while showing the sun in its proper white color, instead of the orange/red or blue tint common with broad-band filters which filter a portion of the visible spectrum and inhibit observing fine details. Also, since the entire spectrum is being passed through, the use of secondary filters is possible to selectively observe specific bands or highlight targeted solar features.

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.

Use of this filter is intended only for the front apertures of telescopes, binoculars, spotting scopes, and camera lenses, and shouldn't be used without an optic for direct solar observation. Learn how to fabricate custom filter mounts at the manufacturer website.

but not I was hoping for. I guess the product needs to be used in a different manner. I tried to use it on my telescope for solar watching but somehow it will not give me enough darkness to spot any dark spots. need to do more research

Very Good for replacement repairs

I used a sheet to replace a five inch --120mm, solar film in a solar filter for a refractor telescope..

Good Solar Filter For The Price

Good basic white light solar filter for the price. Best for small telescopes (I am using on a 90mm refractor). Able to view sunspots (although right now there are not many to see due to solar cycle). Assembly of filter does require some skill and patience (precise cutting and gluing of cardboard that is not supplied). It does not come ready to use out of the package.

Hello, I'm looking for what I need to watch an eclipse with my Celestron Powerseeker 127EQ. Is this film enough or I need something extra for directly looking,? I have doubts because it says "Not for Direct Solar Viewing". In case I need something extra, can you help me with that? Thanks!
