A good astronomer wants to use his telescope at night AND day. For this you need a high quality solar filter. Sunspots, eclipses and transiting satellites, all can be seen clearly and safely when using a Thousand Oaks Solarlite film filter. The sun will appear in a natural orange color through your telescope. Buying the sheet and making the filter on your own will also save you a lot of money. Thousand Oaks Optical has been producing high quality solar filters for the past 30 years. SOLARLITE: NEW (Best Value) After years of R & D, Thousand Oaks Optical has developed a new solar film that has the optical quality of glass with the advantages of impregnated polymer. Will not develop pin holes or scratches that can let in light and ruin a filter. Other advantages: Light weight and does not require re-balancing tube assembly, will not break, consistent yellow-orange solar image, even density with any aperture, flat surface compared to other thin film filters. Slight creases or wrinkles or warps may be present, but these will not have any impact on the solar image. Will not tear or puncture. Stronger than any other solar film on the market. WARNING: Never look at the sun without special eye protection. When viewing the Sun, use this film at all times when any part of the sun is visible. Do not look into an unfiltered telescope with this film on the eyepiece end alone.
