Levenhuk solar filters are made using the special Baader Planetarium film of German make. With them, you can safely observe the Sun without having to worry about permanent eye damage.

The Baader Planetarium AstroSolar Visual film provides high-quality views during solar observations. Even at 60x magnification, you can see some details, such as granulation, on the solar surface; at greater magnifications, you will be able to discern the structure of the spots and the faculae.

Through these filters, the observed image of the Sun is of neutral white color.

How to correctly choose a telescope solar filter

When choosing a solar filter you must consider more than optical design and aperture of your telescope, as the filter must not only cover the objective lens fully, but also fit the telescope’s tube snugly. It is recommended to also secure the filter on the optical tube with adhesive tape to prevent the filter from accidentally sliding off during observations.

The main criterion in choosing the right solar filter is the telescope’s tube/dew shield diameter in comparison with the filter’s inner diameter (when the filter is supposed to fit over the outside of the tube) or outer diameter (when the filter is supposed to be fixed inside the tube). Before purchasing this filter please measure the required diameter of your telescope’s tube and make sure that it matches the values in the Specifications table.

Specifications
Optical density 5.0
Filter aperture (film diameter), mm 70
Inner diameter, mm 108
in 4.3
Outer diameter, mm 112
in 4.4
Usage General use product.
May be used by kids over 3 years old.

This solar filter fits the following Levenhuk telescopes:

Levenhuk Strike 80 NG
Levenhuk Skyline 76x700 AZ

The filter may also be used with telescopes of other manufacturers with similar design and tube diameter. We recommend checking the inner and outer diameter of your telescope optical tube before purchasing the filter.

CAUTION! Never look directly at the Sun — even for an instant — through your telescope or finderscope without a professionally made solar filter that completely covers the front of the instrument, or permanent eye damage may result.

Wait I didn't get it. So it suitable for Sky-Watcher BK Mak102AZ-GT and NOT suitable for BK Mak102EQ2? That's very strange if you ask me since these telescopes are pretty much the same except the mount. Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Solar Filter for 102mm Refractor Telescopes is suitable for both telescope models, provided that you do additional custom fixation with tape. Hence confusing answers: if you are not ready to improve the telescope — filter connection with tape, then the filter is not suitable and can not be used with any of the mentioned telescope models.
