Don't simply drape a black cloth over you to keep the top of your head from getting sunburned when solar observing. The black cloth will just soak up the Sun's rays and get you all hot and sweaty.
Get under the TeleGizmos TGSO solar observing hood instead. This Sky & Telescope Hot Product for 2016 reflects the Sun's energy away from you, keeping your head unsunburned and keeping you cooler during extended sessions at the eyepiece. The TeleGizmos TGSO solar observing hood is simple to use and easy to install. The hood fits over the rear of any scope, wrapping around the optical tube in front of the focuser and forming a tent to shield your diagonal, your eyepiece, and you from the Sun. A Velcro closure secures the observing hood to your scope to keep it in place even when it gets breezy.
The TGSO uses a dual layer design for maximum efficiency. The outer layer is TeleGizmos' well-known and proven solar scope cover material. It reflects the Sun's energy to keep you cooler under the observing hood. The black opaque inner liner provides light blockage. This improves the image contrast in your eyepiece to enhance the visibility of subtle solar features and significantly improve your daytime observing experience.
Originally developed for NASA as a spacecraft insulator, the aluminized multi-layer polyethylene TeleGizmos standard solar cover material is strong, light, and tear and puncture resistant. It is even washable.
The solar material consists of a polyethylene base layer, a reinforcing fiber mesh layer, a layer of pure reflective aluminum, and another layer of clear polyethylene with double lap sewn seams for strength. The aluminized surface reflects away the sun’s energy to keep you cooler under the hood, while the opaque inner layer shuts out the daylight to improve your view. The TGSO solar observing hood stays flexible at temperatures well below freezing and is unaffected by summer sun and heat.
Make your solar observing more comfortable and more visually rewarding by adding an inexpensive TeleGizmos solar observing hood to your daytime observing kit.
