    Product Description

    The Celestron EclipSmart 2x Power Viewers Solar Eclipse Observing Kit will provide excellent views of solar eclipses for you and a friend—at 2X magnification! These viewers go beyond traditional eclipse glasses with an extra boost in magnification to help you see sunspots and other details on the surface of the Sun.Power Viewers fold flat when not in use and expand into a 3-D mini binocular when you’re ready to view. Plus, Power Viewers are equipped with sturdy plastic lenses that boost your magnification. These Celestron EclipSmart 2x Solar Power Viewers are affordable and easy to use—with Solar Safe filter technology that conforms to the current ISO standard. This kit makes observing partial and total solar eclipses like the upcoming 2023 Annular Solar Eclipse and 2024 Total Solar Eclipse easy. You’ll receive two power viewers and a beautiful eclipse poster packed with helpful information, a city-by-city eclipse timetable, and a detailed map of the eclipse’s path. Solar Safe Technology: EclipSmart solar products feature Solar Safe filter technology—the ultimate protection from harmful solar radiation—including IR and UV light—plus 99.999% of visible light. Celestron Solar Safe filter technology is SAFE for direct observation of the Sun and has been independently tested to conform to and meet the transmission requirements of ISO 2312-2:2015(E), Filters for Direct Observation of the Sun, EN 1836:2005 + A1:2007 (E) for an E15 Filter for the Direct Observation of the Sun and AS/NZS 1338.1:2012, Filters for Eye Protectors. Important safety note: inspect your 2x Power Viewers before every use. Do not use and discard if any part of the viewer or the solar film inside is damaged, torn, punctured, or separated from the frame in any way. Do not use these viewers in combination with any magnifying optical device (i.e., telescopes, binoculars). Upcoming Eclipses: 2023 - On October 14, 2023, the famed “Ring of Fire” will encircle a darkened Moon during a spectacular annular eclipse. This special type of partial solar eclipse occurs when the Moon is too far from Earth to cover the Sun completely. The Sun’s corona is not visible during an annular eclipse. 2024 - On April 8, 2024, the Moon will completely cover the Sun during an awe-inspiring Total Solar Eclipse. Observers within the path of totality will witness the Sun’s dazzling corona, observe the “diamond ring” effect, and see day turn to night.
