Seymour Solar makes the finest, yet most-affordable solar filters we’ve ever tested- starting at just $99.95 a pair.  Their Helios thin-film has a consistent yellow-orange solar image, with higher contrast than competitor’s filters.  For binoculars capable of magnifications greater than 25x, we also offer Seymour Premium Glass filters, for highest-possible resolution.  The glass filters are recommended when doing photography using a Novagrade Smartphone or Tablet Adapter.  For visual observation, the Helios film filters are all you need.  Our Seymour filters come with custom felt tape added to the inside of the aluminum cells, for a snug slip-on fit with our binoculars.  For the BT-100-45 and 25/40×100 Long-Range Observation binoculars, the felt is on the outside of the cell in order to snugly fit the inside of the glare-shield area.  See table below to find the correct size for your binocular. All filters meet ISO 123112-2 requirements. No returns accepted for solar filters.

    These filters are great. I have them for my Oberwerk 11×80 LW. I’m using them for solar observations of sunspots. There are not many sunspots right now (early 2021), but the filters work great and help to clearly resolve the dark Umbra and lighter Penumbra.
    Also the “snug” fit is perfect on the binoculars. I can easily slip them on and off, and have no fear as they are so snug, they cannot accidentally slip off.
    This is a good product and I recommend it.

    Nice addition to my Oberwerk binoculars . Ready for the next eclipse. To bad we are at a solar min.

    The Seymore glass solar filters for the BT-82XL-ED binoculars are spectacular! I have viewed using one-eye but it surprised me how well details popped out with two eyes viewing. The solar filters fit snuggly, but fit well on to each aperture and were matched. I have great praise for night-time use, but now have a new daytime use at looking at our local star.
