Home Filters Solar Filters & Glasses Baader Solar Filters for 50mm Binoculars
Pair of Baader Solar Filters to fit most 50mm binoculars providing a professional and secure solution to observe and image the Sun using AstroSolar Safety Film. Many ready made filters do stretch the filter material like a drumhead in order to make it look like a piece of glass this absolutely does destroy the image quality, rendering the film useless for high magnification work.
AstroSolar must be mounted entirely stress free in order to perform like a high precision planeoptical window. It sounds like a contradiction with traditional perception of quality, but AstroSolar must show slight ripples! Only when the film is being put under stress by an improper cell mount it performs just like any single side coated glass-filter made of untreated floatglass.Ideal for most 50mm binoculars (Outer tube diameters from 55mm to 70mm)Baader AstroSolar® Safety Film (OD 5.0), cell mounted and quality inspected by skilled members of our staffClear white IR-rejecting front ring with reinforcing raised edges along the outer and inner circumference,designed to protect the solar filter material from contact with any sharp metal edge3 injection molded centering-bolts with threaded brass inserts to center the filter-cell in front of the tube opening.These bolts come in three different diameters, depending on the filter category (ASTF/ASSF/ASBF).
