Solar Safety Film

* Film Size:

Baader Planetarium AstroSolar® Safety Film

  • AstroSolar® Safety Film 5.0 for solar observation and photography at high magnification, telescope quality, Optical Density (OD) = 5.0.

  • Best suited for precision work with all astronomical telescopes and binoculars – just as well as for all photographic camera- and tele-lenses.

  • This highest precision film consistently produces strehl ratios of 94 to 96 percent at interferometric tests – thus it performs optically like a Fluorite Triplet Lens by Carl Zeiss or Astro Physics
  • Safe for visual solar observation only under these conditions:

    • Must be used in conjunction with a telescope or binocular.

    • Must be placed in front of the objective lens or mirror - NEVER between the instrument and the eye.

    • Not safe for direct solar viewing.

    • Does not comply with ISO 12312-2.
  • Great for imaging.

    • Does not deteriorate the transmitted wavefront.
  • For more than 25 years on the market, the only film-material made to not deteriorate the optical wavefront, it does allow to attain high magnification with any long-range optics without reducing sharpness or contrast of the solar surface.
