    Hi, it’s so cool and easy to set up. Took me less than a minute to start the viewing. Rightly designed to view the sun. To my surprise I was able to see the flares and filaments of the sun and all this with the protection from the harmful rays. Yeah! It seems to be better than expected. What a cool addition to my fun? Thanks, thanks and thanks again
