Telescopes CANADA really should've negotiated to include CANADA in the included map.

I may end up gluing a rubber seal from swim goggles to block light from the edges, the viewers do not conform to your face at all.

Description

The Celestron EclipSmart 2x Power Viewers Solar Eclipse Observing Kit will provide excellent views of solar eclipses for you and a friend—at 2X magnification! These viewers go beyond traditional eclipse glasses with an extra boost in magnification to help you see sunspots and other details on the surface of the Sun.

Power viewers fold flat when not in use. But unlike eclipse glasses, they expand into a 3-D mini binocular when you’re ready to view. Plus, power viewers are equipped with sturdy plastic lenses that boost magnification—with Solar Safe film on the inside. A sunshade on top helps block glare.

Affordable, easy to use, and best of all, Solar Safe, all Celestron EclipSmart 2x Solar Power Viewers are 100% ISO-certified.

This kit makes observing partial and total solar eclipses like the upcoming 2023 Annular Solar Eclipse and 2024 Total Solar Eclipse easy. You’ll receive two power viewers and a beautiful eclipse poster packed with helpful information, a city-by-city eclipse timetable, and a detailed map of the eclipse’s path.


Solar Safe Technology

EclipSmart solar products feature Solar Safe filter technology—the ultimate protection from harmful solar radiation—including IR and UV light—plus 99.999% of visible light. Celestron Solar Safe filter technology is GUARANTEED SAFE for direct observation of the Sun and has been independently tested by SAI Global Assurance Services.

Solar Safe products conform to and meet the transmission requirements of ISO 12312-2, Filters for Direct Observation of the Sun, EN 1836:2005 + A1:2007 (E) for an E15 Filter for the Direct Observation of the Sun and AS/NZS 1338.1:2012, Filters for Eye Protectors.

Important safety note: inspect your 2x Power Viewers before every use. Do not use and discard if any part of the viewer or the solar film inside is damaged, torn, punctured, or separated from the frame in any way. Do not use these viewers in combination with any magnifying optical device (i.e., telescopes, binoculars).


Upcoming Eclipses

2023 - On October 14, 2023, the famed “Ring of Fire” will encircle a darkened Moon during a spectacular annular eclipse.  This special type of partial solar eclipse occurs when the Moon is too far from Earth to cover the Sun completely. The Sun’s corona is not visible during an annular eclipse. Click here for more info.

2024 - On April 8, 2024, the Moon will completely cover the Sun during an awe-inspiring Total Solar Eclipse. Observers within the path of totality will witness the Sun’s dazzling corona, observe the “diamond ring” effect, and see day turn to night. Click here for more info.

Solar Warning
  • Only observe the Sun with ISO-certified eye protection, such as the filter found in this EclipSmart product. Never look directly at the Sun with the naked eye or a non-filtered optic. Permanent and irreversible eye damage may result.
  • Never tamper with or remove the permanently placed glass filters in this optic. Doing so is dangerous and will void your warranty.
  • Never leave your optic unsupervised. Make sure an adult who is familiar with its correct operating procedures is with your optic at all times, especially when children are present.
  • Never remove your eye protection when looking directly at the Sun during partial phases of a solar eclipse.
