Exactly what I wanted Excellent product, clear instructions for making a filter for my camera and eclipse glasses. All ready for the eclipse! (13/08/2017) Jane - Hampshire
Looks good Unlike the baader paper its orange, which I think makes a better colour. (21/07/2017) -
Good product I have only had a limited opportunity to use the filter since fitting it into the housing I use on my 9.25 SCT but first impressions are good and compare favourably to the previous "Baader" film I have used. The orange hue is a pleasant change from the white disc the Baader product produces. (09/04/2017) David Ettie - Washington Tyne and Wear
