Quote:Brett, if you mean you have Solar filters for the 15x80 binoculars, that scares the heck out of me. I refuse to let our club members use solar filters for binos any time the public is around. From the side or back, or from a distance, you cannot tell they are protected by filters, and I'm petrified someone will see us from a ways away and say to their family member, "See, I told you binoculars are ok to look at the sun - go run back to the car and get ours from the back seat" and before you know it somebody has an accident.
