Just edited my original review to add a few photos I took last winter, including lovely comet Lovejoy. These photos are from a really dark place and were processed with Photoshop. However, I just needed a 1-minute exposure at 6400 ISO with my Canon DSLR connected directly to the rear of the telescope (no diagonal). Then I mounted the telescope on a regular Eq. Mount (an additional advantage of this telescope is that it is very light so no heavy duty mount is required... however it needs to be properly aligned and you need to be careful not to touch the camera, telescope or mount when taking a photo to avoid vibration). When I bought this telescope I was needing the equivalent of a 400mm to 600mm lens for my Canon DSLR. These lenses cost several thousand dollars so I bought instead this telescope as it was a very low risk investment compared to the potential benefits. As you can see it really paid off....
"Amazon has not received confirmation from the supplier of your order that they sourced the item from a recommended manufacturer. We recommend that you DO NOT use this product to view the sun or the eclipse."
I had briefly tried the telescope with the solar filter and it appeared to be okay. I don't have the means to accurately measure the effectiveness of the included filter but if there is any doubt it is safer not to take a chance with one's eyesight. I was able to order an ISO 12312-2 compliant filter elsewhere and am hoping it arrives in time to use the scope for the eclipse.
Amazon issued a refund and I appreciate them checking and notifying customers there may be a problem. Lower rating for not confirming the product was safe for the advertised use before selling and causing customers to scramble at the last minute to avoid risk of permanent vision damage. The scope itself (which works well) is still for sale but I see they have removed the Gosky 70 80 Solar Filter from the bundle. There is a Celestron filter available separately that can be safely used with this scope.
