Description:These full-aperture optical glass filters deliver superb views of the Sun, without risk to your eyes. While more expensive than Mylar filters, Orion solar filters provide better contrast, a more natural yellow-orange?color rather than blue?and are more durable. They?re ideal for photographing the Sun too.

The glass elements are machine-polished and triple-coated with an advanced nickel- chromium stainless steel alloy for a scratch-resistant surface. The filter passes only a fraction of the incoming light, rejecting harmful ultraviolet and infrared radiation.

Each filter is mounted in an aluminum cell that slide-fits over the front of your telescope. Size shown is the ideal diameter of front of telescope; filter will fit diameters up to 1/4" smaller with foam tape liner supplied.

A nice, inexpensive filter that will show the white-light features of the sun. Not as sharp or contrasty as my Kendrick-Baader filter, which I prefer over the Orion.

I have both a Baader filter and the Orion glass filter.At times when the seeing is good i prefer the image with the Orion filter due to it's sharper definition on sunspots.The Baader filter shows more contrast on faculae but the Orion filter shows sharper contrast on complex sunspot groups to my eye.Faculae and granulation can also be observed with the glass filter as well.Good product.

Great solar filter, and very safe. White light views are crisp and contrasty.

Well built filter. It fit my XT-8 perfectly!
May be a little on the expensive side but I think that it was worth it. It will last me for years.
