Perfect for kids 13 yrs+ ADULT SUPERVISION RECOMMENDED!
Truly a pocket sized instrument that you can use to view and safely observe all partial phases of a Solar Eclipse, and general solar and sunspot viewing. Ultra-compact, Lunt SUNoculars-mini have front mounted filters making Solar observation 100% safe. These front filters are manufactured from CE certified film to ensure the highest level of viewing quality.
The light of the Sun is reduced to a comfortable 1×10-5% transmission and all ultra-violet and infrared components are completely and safely blocked. The Sun will appear as a pleasant orange color.
Transit of Mercury:
At 6x magnification you will not be able to view the transit of Mercury unless you have superb vision, excellent seeing conditions, and a very stable mount, and even then the image of Mercury will be extremely hard to spot.
The minimum requirement for view under excellent conditions is 8X. However for best results >20X is recommended.
