Sky-Watcher Maksutov Solar Filter
Attach the Sky-Watcher Solar Filter for Maksutov Telescopes securely over the front of your telescope to conduct safe solar viewing. If you are looking at Sun spots or just wanting to get a closer look at our closest Star, this filter will reflect the harmful rays and reduce the intensity of the Sun light making it safe to view through your telescope.
Baader’s Astro Solar Safety Film delivers the optical performance of plane-parallel glass filters. Double-sided metal coatings on the film’s surface ensures good colour balance and allows the user to view the Sun in its natural white light.
The Sky-Watcher Solar Filter for Maksutov Telescopes allows you to see the details in sunspots, bright faculae near the limb and the mottled areas known as granules. These filters enable the safe viewing of our Sun which is one of the most amazing objects in our sky and viewing it can be a great source of fun and knowledge.
