5Proper Eclipse eye protection in a good product
By The WB
Made my purchase for the big Eclipse event on August 21, 20017. Wanted something with a little more viewing magnification and this product sounded like it fit the bill.

Unpacked mine and tried them out with my wife near by. They work as represented.

What I like:
* Simple construction -- cardboard box with top sun bill cover
* 2X power -- brings the view of the sun in much better and closer
* Pre-stretched "Solar" film that is ISO graded safe for full sun viewing
* The view is of yellow/orange color
* Dark, dark, dark glasses -- everything away from the sun is black
* Safe to view for extended periods of time

I wear glasses, so these viewers are away from my eyes more than a non-glasses wearer has them. I used it with a brimmed fishing hat to give me additional protection from the sun shining over the top of my viewer and glasses. A bit tricky, but with practice, it works. You need the additional protection.

I'm geared up for the big day. Now, pray for clear skies that afternoon.

5fun facts, preparation and tips for viewing
By GBaybee
This kit has 4 well-made solar eclipse glasses and an informative guidebook. We have family living near the path of totality and have already made plans to stay with them. The extra glasses will come in handy. The colorfully illustrated guidebook will too. It includes definitions, history, fun facts, preparation and tips for viewing, a general map of eclipse path, and a list of eclipse times and percent for larger cities in Canada, USA, and Mexico. The glasses are ISO-certified heavy film. I looked at cheaper eclipse glasses sets, but chose this one for its reasonable price and because I trust Celestron to supply glasses that are safe to use. Can hardly wait!

5Eclipse Photography
By Amazon Customer
This filter allows me to actually see the sun thru the view screen on my DSLR. Very important for getting the correct settings! I would use some tape to hold the filter onto the body of the lens. Very easy to use on my iPhone! Can see the sun with no issues and snap the shot! The glasses are well built and are itching for some eclipse action. Good for viewing sunsets too. The guide has good tips for viewing and has interesting facts about eclipses. Great package for the price :)
