Baader Solar Filter – the Standard
Mounted Filters with Baader AstroSolar Safety Film OD 5.0
After 15 years of offering AstroSolar film sheets as a DIY product, this system of Baader Solar Filters™ is designed to retain the true optical quality of the diffraction-limited AstroSolar Safety Film.
Baader Solar Filters provide a professional and secure solution to observe and image the Sun using AstroSolar® Safety Film OD 5.0. Many ready-made filters stretch the filter material like a drumhead to make it look like a piece of glass – this reduces image quality, rendering the film useless for high-magnification work. AstroSolar must be mounted entirely stress-free to perform like a high-precision planeoptical window. It sounds like a contradiction with the traditional perception of quality, but AstroSolar must show slight ripples!
- Safe for solar observation and photography with all high-end telescopes and extreme tele-lenses. Suitable for high magnifications and detailed observation of individual sunspots
- AstroSolar Safety Film OD 5.0, mounted stress-free in temperature-compensated cell
- No astigmatism during winter observation or with temperature changes in summer
