Why do you need to indulge in solar observation? You know pretty well that the sun is forever there. All the rest of the celestial bodies like the meteor shower, the planets, or even the moon's phase keep coming and going in cycles. Some of them would have to wait for months or even years. This is not so in the case of the sun that rises every single day without fail.Traditional astronomy would be necessitating a lot of late nights to catch up with rare and spectacular cosmic events.

As solar observation involves an extremely niche market, you would not find too many people who would be really understanding these enthralling views.

It has got Mylar lens that would be blocking over 99.99 percent of the visible light along with IR and UV. Solar eclipse glasses are designed specifically for wearing during the eclipse to look at the sun. Often sunshades, goggles, and solar photo filters are available in convenient packs or observing & imaging kits for astronomy clubs or schools. Celestron and Vision Optics are reputed brands that come up with solar optics including sunshades, solar eclipse safety glasses, solar filters and some other accessories.

The solar binoculars are traditional-looking binoculars; however, there are some solar filters that are installed on the binoculars' front objectives. The reputed brands in solar binoculars are Lunt Solar systems and Celestron. These come in a broad spectrum of configurations and that may include 10×25 and also 10×42.
