The StarGuy White Light Adjustable Solar Filters allows you
to photograph sunspots, eclipses and planetary transits with your camera. The
design blocks 99.999% of the intense light from the sun and allows so you can
take photographs of solar events or view them safely through your telescope for
a short period of time. The solar filter is placed in the direct path to the
sun. It is the first surface that the
sun hits before passing through the telescope or camera.
StarGuy's slip-on solar filters are designed to give you the
best imaging experience, with the ease of simply attaching the filter onto the
front of your telescope or camera lens. When you image through the StarGuy
Solar Filter, the sun appears in neutral white delivering an exceptional
observing experience with more detail than from other filters. Some films and
glass filters produce blurry reddish or bluish solar images, which in turn,
cuts part of the spectrum. With the StarGuy Solar filter photographers will see
detail and sharpness across the field of view
StarGuy Solar Filters are manufactured using Baader
Film. The film is extremely tough and
will not break or tear easily. The
Baader film has a “wrinkled” surface.
This does not affect the quality of the images you see or
photograph. The “wrinkles” may actually
improve the contrast of your imagesThere are a number of filters that stretch
and smooth out the material, but this will impact the quality of your
images. When stretched tight, the filter
works like a glass un-coated filter, delivering inferior image quality and
The StarGuy Filter ring is a lightweight aluminum alloy
coated with a non-reflective finish. This model of the adjustable filter fits
the front of a telescope with an outside diameter of 86-117mm.
Please note, for your safety and that of your equipment,
never look directly at the sun or point your camera at the sun without the
correct solar filter.
• You should
not use a photographic filter for visual observing of the sun.
• Be sure to
examine the filter before each use to assure there are no holes or tears.
• Cover your
finder scope. Do not use this if you
have no filter on the finder scope . Covering it ensures that no one looks through
• Wait for
at least 15 minutes after affixing you filter to ensure that the filter and
your equipment equalize temperature.
• If using
an open tube telescope, cover the open section to ensure no light enters the sides which can cause damage to your
instrument and the filter.
