- Safe and affordable solar filter lets you use your 4.5" aperture reflector telescope to observe the Sun
- See sunspots, eclipses, and planetary transits of the Sun safely with your telescope and this filter
- Made with high quality, streak-free and blister-free Baader Astro Solar Safety Film
- Displays the Sun in neutral white color, without tinting
- Designed for use with Orion 4.5" aperture reflector telescopes
The Orion Safety Film Solar Filter for 4.5" Reflector Telescopes is made with high-quality Baader Astro Solar Safety Film, which is made specifically for safe observation of the Sun through a telescope.
Using this streak-free and blister-free film filter is an affordable and safe way to observe sunspots, solar eclipses and planetary transits of our Sun. When using the filter installed on a 4.5" aperture reflector telescope, you'll see the Sun in neutral white color, without any orange or blue tinting caused by the filter material.
This Orion Safety Film Solar Filter for 4.5" Reflector Telescopes has been designed to fit Orion StarBlast 4.5 Astro and Equatorial Reflector Telescopes, SkyQuest Classic XT4.5 Dobsonian Reflector Telescopes, and the StarBlast 4.5 Imaging Reflector Telescope Optical Tube (all telescopes sold separately).
Don't miss out on the fun of observing solar activity and get an affordable Orion Safety Film Solar Filter!
CAUTION: Never look at the Sun, either directly or through a telescope, without a professionally made protective solar filter installed that completely covers the front of the instrument, or permanent eye damage could result.
Baader Astro Solar is a trademark of Baader Planetarium GmbH.
Before using any telescope for solar observing, make sure to install all dust caps or other protective covers on all optical components such as finder scopes to keep sunlight from passing through them. Glancing through an uncovered optical system, even for an instant, can cause permanent eye damage. Always install protective caps on all optical instruments if left out during daylight hours.
Determining the Correct Orion Glass Solar Filter for your Telescope
A full-aperture solar filter is designed to fit over the front of a telescope. It allows safe viewing of the Sun by reducing the light by 99.99% and preventing concentrated heat from entering the telescope, which could cause injury to the user or damage to equipment.
If your telescope is not listed on our solar filter reference chart, you can determine the size of filter needed for your scope by taking the following steps:
Measure the maximum outside diameter (OD) of the front end of your telescope.
The solar filter sizes listed in our catalog and on our website refer to the inner diameter (ID) of the filter's foam-lined metal cell for Orion Glass Solar Filters, which slip over the front of the telescope. Choose a filter whose size matches the OD of your telescope's front end, or that is up to 0.25" larger than the front end (for Orion Glass Solar Filters only). For a filter that is up to 0.25" larger in diameter than your telescope, apply the supplied adhesive foam tabs as needed to the inside wall of the cell until the cell fits snugly over the front opening. (Note: The thumbscrews on Orion Glass Solar Filters are not intended as the sole means of securing the filter to your optical tube. A tight friction fit is required for safe usage)
