  8. Celestron - EclipSmart 10x42 Porro Solar Binoculars - Black - Angle_Zoom

    Product Description

    The Celestron EclipSmart 10x42mm Solar Porro Binocular is one of the most convenient ways to enjoy safe, detailed, magnified views of the Sun anywhere. These full-size solar binoculars are the perfect grab-and-go option for eclipse chasers or for those studying sunspots any day. Best of all, Celestron EclipSmart binoculars feature Solar Safe filter technology, ensuring ultimate protection from harmful solar radiation. Unlike detachable filters, which can be knocked off unexpectedly, EclipSmart Solar Binoculars feature built-in filters embedded in the objective lenses. Enjoy the Sun with confidence, knowing it’s impossible for the filters to become dislodged while you or your loved ones are observing. Solar Safe Filter 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 12312-2:2015(E), Filters for Direct Observation of the Sun. Important safety note: inspect your binocular’s objective lens filters before every use. Do not use and discard if damaged, scratched, or separated from the frame in any way. Crystal Clear View: With its multi-coated optics, the Celestron EclipSmart 10x42mm binoculars deliver high-contrast images of the Sun. These are white-light solar binoculars that provide a clear black-and-white image of the Sun. The Celestron EclipSmart 10x42mm Solar Binoculars also provide a generous field of view, so you can see the complete solar disk without moving the binocular. The Body: A durable, rubber-armored aluminum housing protects your EclipSmart binocular from damage without weighing you down. The binoculars are comfortable to use for eyeglass wearers and non-eyeglass wearers alike, thanks to their durable folding eyecups. Fold them down for safe and effective use with your eyeglasses or keep them unfolded if you don’t wear glasses. Accessories Included: Carry your EclipSmart binocular with the comfortable included strap. The binocular also includes a protective padded nylon case for storage and transport, and protective eyepiece and objective lens covers. Upcoming Eclipses: 2023 - On October 14, 2023, the famed “Ring of Fire” will encircle a darkened Moon during a spectacular annular eclipse. This phenomenon 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, the “diamond ring” effect, and day turn to night.

Upcoming Eclipses 2023 - On October 14, 2023, the famed “Ring of Fire” will encircle a darkened Moon during a spectacular annular eclipse.  This phenomenon 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, the “diamond ring” effect, and day turn to night.
