The Orion Safety Film Solar Filter for 8" 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 an 8" 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 8" Reflector Telescopes has been designed to fit Orion SkyView Pro and Sirius 8 Equatorial Reflector Telescopes; SkyQuest Classic XT8, IntelliScope XT8i, and XT8g GoTo Dobsonian Reflector Telescopes (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.

*WARNING! When using a truss tube Dobsonian telescope for solar observing, always use a Light Shroud and a properly sized solar filter. When you install the Light Shroud make certain there are no gaps between the Shroud and the telescope where direct sunlight can reach the telescope mirror. When a truss tube telescope (equipped with a solar filter but no Light Shroud) is pointing near (not at) the Sun, direct sunlight can hit the mirror and focus on the solar filter or other portions of the telescope. This can lead to eye injury or damage to the telescope. Using a Light Shroud protects your telescope from peripheral sunlight.

Before using any telescope for solar observing, make sure to install all dustcaps 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.
