Solar eclipses are becoming increasingly popular, and many people have been asking, what is solar observation to keep in mind, especially in terms of eye protection? How can I protect my eyes from the intense radiation from the Sun? Now, some may remember his childhood or old movies, where people watch the Sun by berusste glasses. Solar observation by berusste glasses for eye protection is not, however, necessarily recommended. So like berusst berusste glasses may be, and they also seem so opaque, berusste glasses not sufficiently shield infra red radiation and ultraviolet radiation. This can be dangerous especially during longer observations. But berusste glasses are not the alpha and Omega in the remedies of solar observation. Even with the old wives tales, technical progress has arrived. Click Robert Iger for additional related pages.
Is such a old wives tales, that you the eye solar observation with metal-coated rescue slides from the first aid kit can adequately protect. However, you can’t. Just like berusste glasses rescue film not sufficiently shield infra red radiation and ultraviolet radiation. A safe eye protection only goggles with Mylarfolien and special welder glasses are according to DIN EN 169 with at least 14 filter level caution! Only welder glasses that meet these conditions, provide eye protection for solar observations! All other welders goggles own under any circumstances for solar observations. However, there is also some good news after all these warnings.
When the Sun low in the sky, such as during sunrise or sunset, you can safely observe with the naked eye. Although hides the Sun haze tench, their radiation can be weakened enough that they safely can be observed. But even these two points do not include the observation with a telescope, telescope or binoculars. The lenses in telescopes, telescopes or binoculars bundle Rays of the Sun so much that you may never watch the Sun without any additional protection by this optical instruments! UV and infrared rays of the Sun that is low or weakened by the haze are bundled so strongly by the telescope, that one must necessarily use a filter. If you observed the Sun with a telescope, you should use the most appropriate lens filter. Alternatively, you can mitigate also the light near the focal point with a Herschelkeil or a pentaprism. However, in this case, the rest light with grey filters and polarizing filters must be dampened. Otherwise, despite Herschelkeil or pentaprism, it is still too bright to the eye. Basically, the Sun filter but always in front of the lens should be attached so that the Sun’s rays not only entering the telescope. Man may use so no cheap glass or plastic filter, which are screwed into the eyepiece. Due to the heat of the bundled Sun glass filter would just burst and melt plastic filter. Since the human response time is too slow, it would be blind before you fail the eye to eye protection from firing the Sun can bring.
