The Celestron EclipSmart 20x50mm Solar Porro Binocular is one of the most convenient ways to enjoy safe, detailed, magnified views of the Sun anywhere. This large aperture solar binocular is the perfect grab-and-go option for eclipse chasing, studying sunspots, or simply observing our closet star any day. With powerful 20x magnification, you’ll see the Sun up close like you would with a small telescope and a solar filter. But with a solar binocular, you can find and watch the Sun in a fraction of the setup time.
Best of all, Celestron EclipSmart binoculars feature Solar Safe filter technology, ISO-certified to guarantee you the ultimate protection from harmful solar radiation. Unlike detachable filters, which can be knocked off unexpectedly, EclipSmart Solar Binoculars feature built-in filters embedded in the objective lenses. Enjoy the Sun with confidence, knowing it’s impossible for the filters to become dislodged while you or your loved ones are observing.

Crystal Clear View
With its multi-coated optics, the Celestron EclipSmart 20x50mm binoculars deliver high-contrast images of the Sun. These are white-light solar binoculars that provide a clear black-and-white image of the Sun. The Although it offers high magnification, the 20x50 model still boasts a wide enough field of view that you can see the complete solar disk without moving the binocular.
A durable, rubber-armored aluminum housing protects your EclipSmart binocular from damage without weighing you down. The binoculars are comfortable to use for eyeglass wearers and non-eyeglass wearers alike, thanks to their durable folding eyecups. Fold them down for safe and effective use with your eyeglasses or keep them unfolded if you don’t wear glasses.
- 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.
