made filters for the bins

Made solar filters for my binoculars using an extra set of Wyoming solar glasses. For my old Bushnell Ensign 7x50 clunkers...

custom solar filters for binoculars

Made the faces and tubes from a black file folder. Used white glue. Sandwiched the solar film frame between two face pieces. Installed elastic bands to hold the tubes onto the objectives. Finished by affixing the solar glasses instructions and warnings to the tubes.

They work great.


Only problem is we're at solar minimum...
