    Nice solar binocs for eclipse

    These are nice 10x solar binoculars for eclipse only. Cannot be used for other celestial or terrestial viewing because of the heavy dark internal filters. You see the full sun through white filters. The strap is thin and will cut into the neck, so you will need to buy a wider neck strap or harness. I did see a small sunspot several weeks ago. After the eclipse, there may not be much use, however, if you own a telescope with a solar filter, these might be nice to spot check the sun for solar activity before you set up your scope. There is also another total eclipse coming through the South and Midewest in 2024, and these can be used again. Be nice if Celestron made the binocs orange to differentiate between non-solar binocs for safety purposes. Never look directly at the sun without proper solar glasses or filter.

    I purchased this binocular for the eclipse, since I lived in Oregon. It was a terrific way to view the eclipse. Passed it around people during the eclipse and everyone was surprised how well they could see the sun. Because of the 10x42 magnification, you can see the larger sun and even see sun spots! Since the eclipse, I've used the binoculars to view the sun. Well made and satisfied with this purchase. I feel that my eyes are safely protected.

    I love my purchase and if you are going to ball, then ball hard! These are great for seeing Sunspot activity. However, these are binoculars for looking at the sun. So how do you maximize your value? Get your friends to chip in. Have a local homeowners association? Great have them buy a solar binocular and then make it so that during the 3 hour path you swap the binoculars

    I was excited to find these in stock at BBY, but disappointed to find little if any noticeable difference between viewing the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE with these verses Lunt paper glasses. Definitely not worth having unless you are a pro chasing eclipse' around the world. Quality is very good, manufacturer is known, price better than other comparable products.

    These solar binoculars are for solar only viewing. They provide a smallish 10x view of the Sun with a non-removable white light solar filter. Will work for the Total eclipse event but don't expect to see small Sun spots with them on the Sun's surface.

    Used them for the eclipse and they worked very well. I was able to see all phases of the eclipse. I could clearly see the corolla. The binoculars were very easy to adjust and use.

    The August 2017 eclipse was a joy to see, using these I felt safe enough to look directly at it for a few moments. This are not your regular binoculars.
