Baader 1.25" Single Polarizing Filter - FPOL-1


Baader Planetarium 1.25" Single Polarizing Filter

  • This 1.25" Polarizing Filter is optimally suited for both solar and planetary viewing.
  • Works in conjunction with Baader AstroSolar Safety Film or Baader Herschel Wedge Prism for solar applications. Do not use any eyepiece filter for solar viewing without an objective front filter.
  • Improves contrast for planetary observation.
  • Anti-aging sealed coating on the edges.

This Polarizing Filter screws into 1.25" eyepieces to minimize brightness while maximizing contrast for lunar and solar observations. It can be used with the Baader Herschel Wedge to enable adjustable brightness by rotating the filter/eyepiece combination when the filter is placed between the Herschel Wedge and the eyepiece.

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.
