Bresser’s Polaris 102 EQ3 Telescope is a compact and lightweight telescope that comes with a powerful, high-quality aperture solar filter that enables the safe observation of sunspots, eclipses and planet transits. The telescope delivers a wide field of view, even with its objective lens diameter of 102 mm and focal length of 460mm. This is achievable thanks to the equipped large 2.0'' focuser which allows the use of 2.0'' eyepieces.

Caution: Observing the sun - even momentarily - through optics without the use of a solar filter is liable to cause permanent eye damage. To help prevent accidental exposure, Wex Photo Video recommends the following steps be taken:
Back to top
- Ensure that everyone participating in solar viewing is made aware of the hazard and does not directly look at the sun without using a solar filter.
- Children should be closely supervised at all times.
- Check the filter for flaws, scratches and damage prior to each use. Do not use it if it is compromised.
- Remove the finder-scope from your telescope prior to solar viewing, in order to ensure that you do not accidently catch sight of the sun through it.
- Ensure that the filter is securely fitted and will not fall or be knocked off during use. Be sure to check that it is firmly attached prior to each use.
