Techstination feature for Tuesday, April 2, 2024

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        The total solar eclipse is just days away.   How to view?   Celestron is among the reputable makers of gear for safe viewing.  Everything from EclipSmart Binoculars to kits with the necessary glasses and a guide.   Astronomy product manager Lance Lucero..has travelled the world as an eclipse chaser

“When you observe any eclipse, especially even total eclipses, all the phases leading up to totality, where any part of the sun is still visible, you must have safe eye protection in order to view it properly.”

Celestron makes it affordable…with glasses costing as little as three dollars.    You can get an EclipSmart solar filter for telescopes as well.   Find more at and click on EclipSmart.   Many retailers carry the line as well.
