    Made my family's eclipse viewing!

    Posted by Joel Kohn on Aug 26th 2017

    I bought this one week before the 21 August eclipse. It arrived in promptly. This product greatly enhanced our viewing. We were able to observe sunspots, a jet transit, and possibly the ISS as we watched the eclipse approach totality. Everyone appreciated being able to see a magnified probection without eye protection. It was straightforward to assemble and easy to transport. The only thing is to make sure you have a table/stool to place the unit on for viewing.

    Standard Solarscope

    I ordered this shortly before the August 2017 eclipse and it was an excellent tool for viewing. The image produced was large and clear enough that we could see sunspots. I especially want to thank the company for calling to confirm shipping speed to make sure I would get it in time for the eclipse. All in all I am very happy with my purchase!
