    This filter fits perfectly onto my 5" Celestron scope. No adjustments, no fitting problems.
    Clear, stable views of sunspots through the 'scope and also works perfectly well in front of the lens of my DSLR for shots of the eclipse earlier this month, and it's big enough to hold in front of your face to view the sun directly !
    Has almost doubled my use of my telescope ! Good product.
