A true solar specialist, the lightweight Orion 70mm White-Light Solar Refractor allows you to safely observe the Sun and solar phenomena like sunspots, planetary transits, and eclipses with its built-in solar filter.
Orion offers a rugged, fully padded case to fit just about every telescope we stock. An easy way to transport and store your telescope. Heavy-duty and water-resistant, and fits the Observer 60 Altaz, Observer 70 Altaz, 70 EQ, and ShortTube 80 EQ.
The Orion glass solar filters allow perfectly safe viewing of the Sun's surface. Glass filters are superior to film solar filters because glass provides better contrast (a more natural yellow-orange color, rather than blue) and more durability.
