These provide the user with a compact, convenient, and affordable means of safely observing aspects the Sun including Sun Spot activity (magnetic storms) or Planetary Transits.

    While the innovative SUNocular does at first glance appear similar to a conventional central focus roof-prism binocular however, the SUNoculars incorporate glass solar filter elements that so reduce the amount of light passing through that these are suitable solely for examining intensely bright objects such as the Sun. These filters are an integral component that cannot be removed (or lost) this the SUNocular cannot be employed for the observation of terrestrial objects. The light from the Sun is reduced to a comfortable 10⁻⁵ (0.00001 or 1/100,000th %) transmission, while any ultra-violet and infrared components of that light are completely and safely blocked.

    The full size SUNocular is so compact and useful that Company Seven is stocking this, ordering the small 6x SUNocular-Mini only by request. This article profiles the SUNocular 8x model.
