Baader 2" Single Polarizing Filter - FPOL-2


Baader Planetarium 2" Single Polarizing Filter

  • This 2" Polarizing Filter is perfect for solar as well as planetary observing.
  • Combines with Baader AstroSolar Safety Film or Baader Herschel Wedge Prism for solar use.Do not use any eyepiece filter for solar viewing without an objective front filter.
  • Contrast is enhanced for planetary viewing.
  • Anti-aging sealed coating on the edges.

Fitting 2" eyepieces to simultaneously reduce brightness while increasing contrast for lunar and solar applications, this Polarizing Filter works in conjunction with the Baader Herschel Wedge to allow adjustable brightness. This is enabled by positioning it between the Herschel Wedge and the eyepiece and rotating the filter/eyepiece combination.

Important Information For Observing The Sun

Polarizing and neutral density filters require additional filtering such as a Herschel Prism or Astro Solar Safety Film before the telescope eyepiece for safe solar viewing. Observing without the proper filters can cause severe damage to both these filters and your eyes.
