5.0 out of 5 stars Works great!!!!
By RUSH MLC on July 30, 2017
Works great!!!! It took some trail and error, but I was finally able to place a sheet in front of my Canon SX700 30X Optical camera. Instructions says use rubber bands, that didn't work for me. I ended up using scotch tape to tape the a cut sheet to my camera lens. I took these photos mounted on at Magnus TV-300 fluid head tri pod. I am ready for the eclipse on August 1st, 2017 now :).

5.0 out of 5 stars I saw the sun...and it opened up my eyes!
By Bekroogle on November 10, 2014
I was pleasantly surprised. I used this film to build my own solar filter with cardboard and it's awesome. Someone on reddit posted a photo of the sun taken with an H-Alpha scope they day this arrived, so I knew my expectations were going to be off.

But, when I finally got my filter built, and slipped over the scope, I was a little shocked. . . the sun spots were so vivid, and the sun's surface is clearly quite turbulent.

I also really like the coloration. I've seen photos taken with the Baeder film (which produces a white image) wherein the photographers used software to add some yellow color to their images . . . in the end, their images looked just like what you see through this black polymer.

(The photo of the sun below was taken with my cell phone held up to the eyepiece. It really doesn't do this filter justice.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Worked nicely!!
By IshopALOT on June 2, 2017
This filter worked amazingly! I used some tape and cardboard and constructed a cap for one of my telescopes. The sun through the filter looks yellow/Orange and I was able to see a couple of sun spots. Doing this saved me a ton of money!
Update****
Thus sheet was enough for me to make 2 solar filters. I also have a celestron 130slt telescope and the cap cover it came with has another smaller cap that pops off leaving a small opening. I cut small square from this solar filter sheet and taped it from the inside of the cap cover. This morning I went outside to test it and it Worked! Now I have a solar filter for both my telescopes and it costed me less than $25!!. I took some pics of the cap cover from the 130slt

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to Cut and Apply
By Syd on January 28, 2017
Comes sandwiched between heavy paper sheets allowing easy cutting to shape. Simple instruction label nicely covers eye safety and application issues. "Silver side faces sun" statement could have been printed in bold - for asymmetric patterns; (I lucked out on the 50/50 chance)! I cut rings from 1" and 1/2" Styrofoam, sandwiched filter material between, and white-glued them together for smaller telescopes, binoculars and cameras in preparation for August 21, 2017 eclipse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worked fine for me, and much cheaper than pre-made filters
By Istas on February 12, 2016
My astronomy/telescope skill is not good enough to judge the grade of this film compared to other options, but I used it to make a filter for my 8" telescope and got some very satisfying pictures of sunspots with it without frying my camera, so it certainly works for me.

Included picture is the best one I got, which is blurrier than it should be due to the turbulence in the atmosphere that day. Color removed and levels adjusted to show greater contrast in the visible features; the filter doesn't seem to add any unusual or disagreeable color to the sun.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works pretty much as advertised
By Amazon Customer on August 4, 2017
It works pretty much as advertised, great product! The filter feels very similar to a very thin aluminum foil. You can cut and fold it to fit whatever shape you want. I made a simple cap for my DSLR telephoto lens (picture attached) and it works great. I got an old $1 folder I have from years ago and cut a rectangle from it. Then I folder it around the end of my telephoto lens and taped down where the folds met. Then it was a matter of cutting the filter, wrapping it around the edge of folder cap, and then taping it all down with duct tape. This makes the filter fit very snugly onto the lens, yet you can remove and reattach it very quickly.

Using this, I got some photos of the sun (attached). You can see the small sunspot clearly. Definitely recommend this product if you are planning to go to the eclipse in 2 weeks or if you want to take photos of the sun in general.

4.0 out of 5 stars It works as expected
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 26, 2020
I'm not an astronomer nor a photographer, but the sun interests me a lot. So I wanted to get a look at the sun's disk using my camcorder. Finding a 43mm solar filter proving to be difficult (or very expensive), I discovered this solar sheet product and ordered it. Due to being shipped from Israel it took quite a long time to arrive, but it finally did. It was rather thinner/flimsier than I expected, and I was not entirely sure how to attach it. I was going to use my existing 43mm UV filter, but I didn't want to damage it with adhesive (sticky tape would have been problematic). So I hit upon the idea of getting a 43mm x 58mm adapter ring. This provided a flat flange on which to adhere the filter. Shown in the images are what the filter (after cutting) looked like after mounting. And there's the photo of the adapter attached to the camera -- as you can see, it's a very consumer-oriented camera, without a manual focus. And the fourth photo is the result of finally getting the camera to focus on infinity! I was very disappointed in the result, as there were no sunspots whatsoever! I wondered why... was it the filter? the camera? Then it hit me: it's the low point in the sun's 11 year cycle. I checked online, and yes, there were no sunspots at the time I took the photo, 3 July 2020. So the photo I took is a fair representation of the current sun disk.

So, all in all, I'm pleased with this solar filter.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not many reasons to pick it over a Baader, especially if you have a small scope or want photography.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 10, 2016
It is much darker and shows less clear details than the Baader Astrosolar film. In general, I would say outright avoid it for apertures under 4". For larger telescopes if you don't try to zoom on details (e.g. viewing the full disk), it will look crisp and some people actually like the orange color of the sun (because we commonly associate the sun with the color of the sunset) - when, in fact, the sun is white (the Baader filter is accurate in that respect). However, high power views even in large telescopes won't show the same detail as the similarly priced Baader Astrosolar film and photography in particular suffers considerably. Sunspots are much less well defined, you can't really see granulation etc. Also you can't use some interesting blue/green filters (like the Continuum) that can better show some features, as the Thousand Oaks filter blocks most of the blue/green light. I did see some improvement in photography when using a CLS filter with it, so do try that if you have one.

I am attaching one image to show the comparison of color & brightness (note ISO and exposure) between this filter and the Baader film. I am attaching an additional one through a 2x barlow and a CLS filter that is a stack of a few hundred frames of a Canon 550D video crop mode movie to show the difference in detail of the Thousand Oaks and the Baader after full processing and sharpening (and both color adjusted to a pleasant yellow). All images were taken with a Skywatcher Evostar 80ED Pro.

PS. You might notice that one side is more shiny. Most people have that side facing the sun to reflect more heat, but there are no actual instructions about it from the manufacturer so don't worry if you installed it the other way, it seems to function the same both ways.
