Photograph sunspots, surface granulation, eclipses and planetary transits with your telephoto lens and the Vixen StarGuy White Light Solar Filters. These filters display the sun in a neutral white color without tinting.
Vixen StarGuy’s thread-on solar filters are designed to give you the best imaging experience, with the ease of simply threading onto the front of your camera lens. When you image through the StarGuy Solar Filter, the sun appears in neutral white delivering an exceptional observing experience with more detail than from other filters. Some films and glass filters produce blurry reddish or bluish solar images, which in turn, cuts part of the spectrum. Photographers will see detail and sharpness across the field of view. Additionally, the film is very durable and will not easily break or tear.
The filters have wrinkles and other imperfections, which are normal. These “imperfections” do not affect the image quality or safety of the filter. This is an asset as they improve the image contrast and enhance your view. The filter housing that holds the StarGuy solar filter is constructed of lightweight aluminum.

Warning: do not continue to use a solar filter after it has been damaged or you could permanently damage your eyes. You should always inspect your solar filter before using it. When using a solar filter on a camera, do not look through the optical sight of your camera at the Sun; use the live view digital screen instead.
