The Vespera Solar Filter adds to the versatility of the Vespera observing station by providing the ability to observe the Sun. The filter allows you to observe sunspots that show the intensity of the Sun’s activity.
When using the Vespera Solar Filter with Vespera’s Solar Mode you can observe the Sun in almost real-time using the live display. You can also capture photos at any time from the Observation tab of the Vespera Singularity mobile app. Take several shots at different times of the day, week or month and compare your photos to witness how the Sun’s activity changes with the appearance or disappearance of sunspots. These can have a life span of several days, more rarely several weeks.
The Vespera Solar Filter is easily fitted to the front of the observation station’s lens and is automatically recognized by the Singularity app so you can start your solar observation with complete peace of mind. The filter is made of solar safe metalized foil with a dimming effect. It will reduce the amount of light and allow you to observe the Sun in a way that is safe for your instrument. You will be guided through every step by the Solar Pointing mode of the Vaonis Singularity app, to ensure the observation runs smoothly and that you and your instrument are safe.
