SAFETY FIRST: Observing the Sun without the proper protection may result in serious personal injury, including permanent eye damage and blindness, and/or damage to equipment. Never point an optic at the sun without an approved solar filter on the front of the optic. For direct solar viewing, viewing the sun through an optic, or when using cameras with an optical viewfinder, ensure your filter is ISO 12312-2 (also written as ISO 12312-2:2015) certified. Never use photographic neutral density filters for direct solar viewing, viewing the sun through an optic, or when using cameras with an optical viewfinder.
It may sound silly, but it is quite hard to find the sun with a telescope. You can't dare risk a direct look. The Sol Searcher functions as a projector, with its aperture acting as a pinhole to image the sun towards the eyepiece. You actually look away from the sun, at the translucent screen, to find the sun. Completely safe and easily aligned to your scope.
