Wayne, I have used Baader film to make binocular filters and 80mm finder filters. It gives a more neutral color than older mylar filters, and comes in visual and photographic densities. I made slide-on filter cells by wraping thin cardboard around the objective ends of the binocular, and used Elmers glue between wraps. These were then glued to narrow annular cardboard rings which hold the filter. Somewhat crude but very cheap. I think Starizona sells the film.

Benson, AZ 85602 hm ph: 520-586-2244 Does anyone have a good suggestion for a source of reasonably-priced solar filters, especially to use on a 20x100 binoculars? Just for aesthetics I would prefer a yellow sun as opposed to a blue one!
