Customer Reviews

The glasses I received do not resemble those shown in ...
The glasses I received do not resemble those shown in any way. The Baader name does not appear on them anywhere, and there are typographical errors in the printed instructions on the inside of the arms.

The best on the market, manufactured by a supplier of astronomy equipment
Excellent glasses that appear exactly as advertised in the product photo. I am disturbed to see a fake review at the top of the page by someone named "Rebekah" who apparently works for a competitor and is displaying glasses other than the ones in the photo and pretending to have gotten them from Agena Astro. From what I can tell these Baader glasses from Agena Astro are the best on the market.

Item as described
Rec'd 8/5/17, exactly as shown on OnlineShopDealer. 5 pack. Inspected all, one had very minor scratch-won't use that one. Has all markings per NASA (search for safe_glasses_flyer, OnlineShopDealer would not let me post full link), shows manufactured 2017 and shows manufactured by Baader Planetarium, "Solar Viewer AstroSolar Silver/Gold." Cannot attest to effectiveness, but seems to be correct item per OnlineShopDealer and agrees with NASA document. Can see a very strong LED flashlight dimly through the lenses when held closely - may try to shine same light through welder's glass to see if same effect and report back. NOTE: This review doesn't purport to be analysis of effectiveness of product in eye protection, just feedback on the product to the degree possible by a non-expert prior to eclipse (not making any warranty, guarantee, etc.).

Description

Please note: Even though baader calls this film Silver/Gold, it is silver on one side and black on the other. It is not actually gold in color! No reflections: The anti-reflective, UV-absorbing Gold Film on the inside of Baader's Astrosolar Viewers guarantees a most comfortable viewing experience. Made in Germany: Baader Solar Viewers are entirely produced in Germany under direct supervision of Baader Planetarium. These are high quality glasses using time tested expensive materials, processes, and stringent quality controls. Safety: Baader Solar Viewer AstroSolar Glasses meet and largely exceed the latest EN ISO 12312-2:2015 standard for eclipse viewers. Just as importantly - each and every viewer is tested to ensure its safety. Don't entrust your eyes to anything less. Crystal clear and tack sharp: Many low cost viewers may supply softer hazy views. Baader's Solar Viewers deliver the same crystal clear views as their renowned AstroSolar film used for over 25 years by professionals and amateurs for high magnification telescopic observation. True color views: No other viewer presents the sun as close to its real color - WHITE! Other viewers claim to produce a pleasing or natural yellow or orange colored sun (not because that is desirable, but because all simple smoked plastic viewers color the image to look reddish). Nothing could be more unnatural for the overhead sun. Our Sun is White and Baader's AstroSolar Glasses are the only way to see it this way with your eyes. Additional Info: Four languages: Safety instructions in German, English, French and Spanish language printed on the inside of each viewer. Each Solar Viewer AstroSolar Silver/Gold printing artwork explains in vivid images what actually happens during an eclipse
