The Celestron EclipSmart 8-Piece Solar Eclipse Observing and Imaging Kit is a must-have for small groups who want to view and photograph partial and total solar eclipses like the upcoming 2023 Annular Solar Eclipse and 2024 Total Solar Eclipse. Affordable, easy to use, and best of all, Solar Safe, every Celestron EclipSmart product in this kit is 100% ISO-certified.
With this kit, your group will be totally prepared for eclipse day. It includes four paper eclipse glasses and one pair of premium, durable plastic eclipse glasses. Buy with confidence, knowing that EclipSmart eclipse glasses can fit everyone in your group. The paper glasses feature two sets of fold marks so you can customize the fit, while the plastic glasses feature wraparound-style arms that adjust to different head sizes.
Grab the handy photo filter when you’re ready to capture images and video of the Sun with your smartphone or camera. Simply place the filter over your camera lens, and its delicate imaging sensor is protected. It works with phones, camcorders, action cams, point-and-shoot cameras, and DSLRs. Only remove the filter when the camera is no longer pointing at the Sun.
The bonus resources include a 32-page booklet with helpful information, observing tips and tricks, a map, and a city-by-city timetable. There’s also a beautiful two-sided poster with an even larger map of the eclipse’s path, perfect for remembering your experience.
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 glasses before every use. Do not use and discard if the solar film is damaged, torn, punctured, or separated from the frame in any way. Do not use these glasses in combination with any magnifying optical device (i.e., telescopes, binoculars).
- 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.
