Thousand Oaks Optical R-G Solar Film is designed with quality and cost in mind. This specific solar film provides a superior image of the sun at a very economical price. Unlike other brands of thin film solar filters, the R-G Solar Film provides a more pleasing and natural Yellow-Orange image of the sun our customers have come to know and love through our Glass Solar Filter product line. The film also available in sheets for those who like to make their own solar filters. Guaranteed 5 years.
- The RG film offers the highest resolution with high magnification.
- RG-Solar Film filters are completely safe for unlimited visual use. If handled with care and common sense, they'll last a minimum of 20 years to life.
- All the heat and intense light is blocked before it can enter the telescope. Your telescope may get warm from sunlight shining on it, not from the small amount of visible light transmitted through the filter.
- RG and Glass filters have highly reflective coatings that can cause internal reflections between the filter and camera lens since the filter and lens are in close proximity. This problem is less likely to occur with telescopes, however, mounted telescope filters can be tilted slightly to move any internal reflections off the central axis and out of view.
The RG Solar film by Thousand Oaks Optical now brings superior solar imaging to the amateur astronomer. The question may come up as to why? RG Solar Film emphasizes more on the natural yellow and orange colors of the Sun which is what makes the viewing so extraordinary. Last but not least, RG Solar Film offers high resolution even at high magnification!
