“I can’t find the Sun!” Sounds funny. However, the Sun is tricky to find in a properly filtered telescope, and you don’t ever want to chance a direct gaze, let alone a magnified image of it.
Sol-Searcher is the safe and easy way to find the Sun. It is absolutely safe since you don’t look through Sol-Searcher, you look at it. The aperture acts as a “pinhole” which projects an image of the Sun on to the 1/4″ translucent “screen.” This screen can be viewed from either side. Simply move your scope until the Sun’s image is centered on the screen and the Sun will be in the eyepiece’s field of view.
I have one of these on my Lunt LS50THa. When I took it out of the box I was very skeptical about how it would perform but I must say that it is the easiest finder I have used in either daylight or darkness.If you enjoy solar observing you need one of these in your life.
