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.

Optical density 5.0
Filter aperture (film diameter), mm 100
Inner diameter, mm 146

Outer diameter, mm -
Usage General use product.
May be used by kids over 3 years old.

This solar filter fits the following Levenhuk telescopes:

Levenhuk Strike 100 PLUS
Levenhuk Strike 115 PLUS
Levenhuk Strike 120 PLUS
Levenhuk Skyline PRO 127 MAK
Levenhuk SkyMatic 127 GT MAK
Levenhuk Ra R115 ED Triplet OTA
Levenhuk Ra R110 ED Doublet OTA

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.

Hello! Will this filter fit skymatic 135 GTA (130mm aperture)? If not, what would you advise me to do? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Yes, Levenhuk Solar Filter for 127mm MAK Telescopes is suitable for the Levenhuk SkyMatic 135 GTA model. But this filter won't fit perfectly. You'll have to fix it with a special tape. It is very hard to find an ideally sized filter.

outside diameter is like 5.5" . hard to say because its tapered. Levenhuk Customer Service:
Petrik, you may try the Levenhuk 120 mm Solar Filter. The outer diameter is 139 mm. In view of possible measurement uncertainty, our filter might fit. Is there any additional information you might need?

Could this filter fit the Levenhuk Strike 135 PLUS Telescope ? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Hi Alexander, Thank you for your query. The Levenhuk 127 mm Solar Filter will not fit the Levenhuk Strike 135 PLUS Telescope. I'd recommend to check out the Levenhuk Strike 900 PRO Telescope ($289.95 value) here at https://www.levenhuk.com/products/telescope-levenhuk-strike-900-pro/ This model comes with the Solar filter included in the standard package. Also included is a Lunar filter and a set of filters for planetary observations which enhance the features of observed objects. Is there any additional information you might need?
