Solar Observing & Imaging

 

Viewing and imaging the Sun can be very dangerous. Below are products specially made for this purpose. These range from simple filters such as Baader Solar Film. This allows safe viewing of the Sun and can be fitted to the front of a conventional telescope. This provides a 'white' view or image of the Sun which will show sun spots. For more detailed views special equipment is required. Our range of Solar Telescopes feature 'Etalons'. These allow you to view the Sun in a specific wavelength for very detailed views of the surface and of events such as the Suns Prominences and Chromosphere.
