Levenhuk Solar Filter for 127mm MAK Telescopes
Full aperture solar filter for safe observations of the Sun: 100/146 mm
With Levenhuk Solar Filter for 127mm MAK Telescopes you can safely observe the Sun and you don’t have to worry about your eyes – this filter will protect them from harmful solar radiation.
The German-made Baader Planetarium AstroSolar Visual film has a uniform structure and provides high-quality images with no distortion. It allows you to see a lot of details on the solar surface such as granulation, solar flares and the structure of the spots – all this you will be able to see with your own eyes.
With this filter the Sun will be of a neutral, eye-pleasing white color.
When choosing a solar filter you should mainly take into consideration your telescopes optical tube diameter and not the telescopes aperture. If the filter is to cover your telescopes front end, you should compare the filters inner diameter to your optical tube/dew shield diameter. If the filter is to be placed inside the tube, you should look at the filters outer diameter in comparison with the telescope tube diameter. Please measure your telescope before buying this filter and carefully compare your results with the values provided in the Specifications table.
