Solar glasses are the most popular solar viewing accessory among amateur enthusiasts. They are inexpensive and come in cardboard or plastic for reinforced durability. High Point Scientific carries many accessories to outfit your nighttime viewing telescope for solar observations, including filters, wedges, eyepieces, and even solar film, so you can customize your own equipment.
You can outfit your solar telescope with two kinds of solar filters: white light or hydrogen-alpha. Accessories with white light filters transmit the entire visible spectrum of light but restrict it to a level that makes observing safe. H-alpha filters, on the other hand, transmit only the H-alpha line of light from the visible spectrum. H-alpha filters tend to produce more clear, detailed images and are a favorite among astrophotographers.
