Description 

Featuring Solar Safe filter technology for guaranteed safe observation of the Sun.

Dedicated white-light solar telescope for the observer on the go. The 50mm refracting telescope uses Celestron’s Solar Safe, ISO compliant, full-aperture glass filter material to ensure the safest view of solar events.  The kit comes complete with everything you need, including the dedicated solar telescope, a Solar Safe finderscope, tripod, a high quality 20mm (18x) Kellner eyepiece and a nylon backpack to carry everything in.  This telescope makes it easy to share an eclipse with the whole family and offers much higher magnifications than you would otherwise get using handheld solar viewers or binoculars.

EclipSmart solar products feature Solar Safe filter technology providing the ultimate protection from harmful solar radiation, including both IR and UV light, and filters 99.999% of intense visible light. Celestron Solar Safe filter technology is GUARANTEED SAFE for direct solar observation and has been independently tested by SAI Global Assurance Services. The filters are permanently attached and cannot be accidentally removed while observing.

Special Features...

  • Full aperture ISO certified glass solar filters. Celestron's permanently mounted glass filters have been independently tested to meet ISO standards for safe direct viewing of the sun
  • Solar safe finderscope allows you to easily align the telescope to the sun without directly viewing the sun. Just line up the shadow of the pointer with the center of the target reticle and the sun should appear in your eyepiece.
  • Photo-style alt-azimuth mount and tripod allows easy adjust and aiming of the telescope while offering great stability. The telescope can point straight overhead without interference.
  • 20mm Kellner (1.25') eyepiece offers 18x magnification for a good image scale while offering a wide field if view to make it easier to track the sun's apparent motion.
  • Included backpack holds and protects your solar scope, tripod and all of the accessories, making it easy to carry to remote observing sites.
