Product Description

Curious Minds Did You Know: Projectors often use dichroic prisms as it splits the light in to red, green and blue components respectively. The Red, green and blue (RGB) colour system is very commonly used to display images.

This amazing Solar Projector Construction Kit provides a fascinating practical project to build your own solar projector instrument and once built, it is an easy and secure way to introduce children to the Sun without risk as it projects the Sun onto a view screen. The optics consists of an achromatic glass lens, one plane and two convex mirrors. The projector can be adjusted from 0 to 90 degrees and two quadrants measure the Sun's declination.

Teach them how to build the solar projector first and then spend time indirectly viewing the sun through the projector.

Instructions were a bit difficult but it worked well

I bought this to use during the recent solar eclipse. The written instructions were a bit hard to follow and some parts were a bit fiddly but once I got it put together it worked quite well. As I was taking it to and from on an airplane I used tape to put it together so I could break it down and put it in my suitcase. Somehow I didn't take a photo of the whole setup though!

Hi Amanda, Thank you so much for your amazing review and the photo! What a fantastic way to use the camera, we're thrilled to see the image you took of the eclipse.
