You observe the night sky, but are you also interested in observing the Sun? The Basic solar filter lets you also do astronomy during the day! And the best part is that, if you have an Omegon Basic telescope, it fits directly onto the lens. And you can get started right away with your solar observing!
The advantages in a nutshell:
Solar filter foil for safe observing.
This solar filter is made using a special filter foil that provides you with a neutral white image of the Sun. With a filter factor of 100,000 times, only 0.001% of the sunlight entering the telescope reaches your eye, which means you can always observe the Sun in perfect safety.
For what and for whom is this solar filter suitable?
This filter is fantastic for when you want to observe sunspots and solar flares and also for observing granulation on the surface of the Sun. It is also great for observing solar eclipses - it is breath-taking watching the Moon gradually obscure the Sun's disc.
Photography using the solar filter!
The Sun always shows some exciting detail. Keep a record of the spots and flares with your camera and become a solar photographer. You can also keep track of how an entire sunspot group evolves. Nothing could be easier! By the way - the matching adapter for your particular telescope can be found in our accessories section.
