Astrozap Baader AstroSolar Visual White Light Solar Filter

With the Astrozap Baader AstroSolar White Light Visual Solar Filter the Sun appears in neutral white. Other films and some glass filters produce a blurry bluish or reddish Solar image, thereby cutting off part of the spectrum. Especially with an orange sun, it is very hard to see faculae regions which are visible predominantly in the blue wing of the visible spectrum. Therefore, these solar filters help eliminate this deficiency.

Due to its neutral color balance, the Astrozap Baader AstroSolar White Light Visual Solar Filter enables the use of various color (or interference) filters which allows the observer to concentrate on certain spectral passbands for investigations of different layers within the solar "atmosphere".

The Baader AstroSolar Filter is essentially free from pinholes, since - other than with even the most expensive glass filters - it is coated on both sides, so that the chance of two pinholes overlapping each other is extremely faint. Pinholes do appear, but to 1 out of 10000 only in optical density 2.5! Baader AstroSolar safety film has been approved for eye safety by the National Bureau of Standards in Germany, the PTB. Unlike any other Solar Filter on the market, AstroSolar is CE-tested according to EG-Norm 89/686 and EN 169/92 (notified body 0196). All processes connected to this product have been thoroughly tested. Coatings are inspected constantly for consistency to ensure your eye safety!

The Baader AstroSolar Filter cell constructed from lightweight 18Ga. aluminum and powder coated white. Heavy duty threaded inserts and nylon thumbscrews insure a secure fit. NOTE:  Choose the size you need for your scope from the drop-down list; also note that the last filter listed (AZ-1009) is an Off-Axis type Filter!
