Product Description

This nearly full aperture Thousand Oaks solar filter has a 355mm/14" clear aperture Type 2+ glass filter element. A true 16" full aperture filter element exceeds the manufacturer's vacuum chamber capacity and would offer no visible benefit over this 14" filter element. The 14" filter is mounted in an aluminum cell with a 447mm/17-5/8" internal diameter to fit scopes with a maximum diameter of 446mm (17-9/16").

It fits all versions of the 14" Meade LX200 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope.

You can custom fit it to scopes with an O.D. of 441mm (17-3/8") to 446mm (17-9/16") by using the extra supplied self-adhesive felt.

Always remember to install the solar filter before pointing your telescope at the Sun to avoid instant and irreversible damage to your eyesight.
