Solar Filters from kendrick Astro Instruments
If you would rather not make your solar filter, you may prefer to purchase a ready-made filter. Kendrick Astro Instruments anticipated this need and has an economical solution!
We provide the chart below as a quick reference for Astro-Physics refractor and binoculars. For other telescopes, use this handy selection reference: Kendrick Solar Filter Selection Guide. Note that we do not carry the "SF" Style filters.

Kendrick Sun Finder (KSF6000)
The Kendrick Sun Finder makes locating the sun and centering it in your eyepiece a cinch…no more trying to line up the shadow of the scope on the ground.
The Sun Finder projects a solar dot onto the white target which can be viewed either from the front of the finder or through the cut out on the back. The finder comes with a double sided adhesive foam tape for easy adhesion to a solar filter ring or other surface - like a mounting ring.
Put one on each of your solar filters!
You may also wish to add the Baader Solar Continuum Filter to your Solar observing arsenal. This filter, when combined with the Kendrick Solar Filters gives increased contrast for finer detail in surface features.
