NEW! Solar Filters with built in sun finder!

The new design has a built in sun finder making centering the sun in your eyepiece very easy. The finder target is visible from both the front and back sides of the filter making centering the sun easy from either end of the telescope.

Kendrick have replaced the filter rims with three tabs that contain a secure threaded insert and a nylon thumb screw, making the filter much lighter without reducing the security of the fit. The main reason they made this particular change is that many telescopes have dovetails or other attachments that interfere with the proper fitting of a solar filter to the telescope. Now the filter can be placed onto the scope so that the three thumb screws always firmly attach to the body of the scope. As well, the tabs extend down far enough to allow the thumbscrews to connect beyond the bevels found on some dewcaps or the corrector plate rings and tube rings of some telescopes, ensuring a very secure connection to the telescope.

The filter material itself is the famous BAADER AstroSolar Film. This film has set a new standard for white light filters and gives a very pleasing and high resolution image. The image color is a bluish white. The filters are available in photographic film also. Constructed of aluminum.

  • Avoids dovetails, counterweights bars and otherdevices or objects that would prevent a standard ring stylefilter from fitting properly.
  • Has built in Solar FInder to help locate and center the sun in your eyepiece. (Actually much harder to do that many would initially assume.
  • Lighter weight design. Will not unbalance your telescope.
  • Very easy to replace the filter ring if the solar filter material gets damaged.
  • Held in place with nylon thumbscrews.
