I’m trying to capture the Annular Eclipse Happening May 26, 2021.

I have a Rokinon 135mm f/2 Lens and a Canon T3i.

 

Does anyone know of a solar eclipse filter that can be put on the Lens or inside of the camera.

 

Thanks for helping

Telescope solar filters will work fine for a camera lens, you just need one that's the right size. Orion, Astrozap, Baader, and other companies all make filters that cover the front element and are held in place with set screws. For example: https://optcorp.com/...-73-79mm-filter

You just need to measure how wide the front of your lens is so you get one that'll fit it. You can usually find film and glass options. Both will work and film is cheaper, but glass filters are much more robust. A tiny tear in a film filter can be devastating so I'd get a glass filter if you can afford it.

Side note- May 26 '21 will be a lunar eclipse. The next annular solar eclipse is on June 10th.

Ok great. Thank you I’ll check them out and see if They don’t have a back order.
