If you are an amateur astronomer, a special solar filter is a must in your accessory arsenal! Levenhuk Solar Filter for 130mm Reflector Telescopes will provide your full protection during solar observations. It reflects harmful radiation, reduces image brightness and ensures comfortable viewing for a long period of time.

It has an even surface and provides the same quality and highly detailed views as plane-parallel glass filters. With its help, youÕll be able to observe sunspots, granulation, and faculae.

When choosing a solar filter you should mainly take into consideration your telescopeÕs optical tube diameter and not the telescopeÕs aperture. If the filter is to cover your telescopeÕs front end, you should compare the filterÕs inner diameter to your optical tube/dew shield diameter. If the filter is to be placed inside the tube, you should look at the filterÕs outer diameter in comparison with the telescope tube diameter. Please measure your telescope before buying this filter and carefully compare your results with the values provided in the Specifications table.
