Solarscope Solar Filter (SF) systems allow you to convert your existing night time telescope into a powerful solar instrument. When you want to go back to viewing the stars, simply remove the filter system, replace it in its foam lined box and carry on using your telescope as normal.
Solarscope currently offer four different sizes of etalon; 50mm, 60mm, 70mm and the top of the range 100mm.
In order for the system to work correctly a blocking filter needs to be fitted into the eyepiece holder of your telescope. By default, this filter is housed in a standard 2" tube. Solutions are available for 1.25" fittings as well, please call for further information.
The external end of the blocking filter is designed to accept 2" eyepiece or camera fittings. A 2" to 1.25" adapter is included as standard should it be required.
Once the front mounted etalon and the rear blocking filter have been attached to your telescope, as described, that's it - you're ready to go out and enjoy the Sun.
Please enquire for prices for adaptor plates for specific telescopes - prices vary according to the telescope you are intending to use with your Solar Filter.
