    Thanks Mary, the cardboard seems to be a quick solution but not a permanent one, in my opinion

    And in 3D printing or … ?

    using PVC sheet plastic for the substrate instead of cardboard, making it more durable i assume

    My binoculars are 25 100 so the teleskop service metal ring are too small but it's a good idea

    APM Telescope sells metal ringed filters using the Baader solar film that fit these.
    Look under binocular accessories.

    I have detailed instructions on my web site. A lot of people have written back to me saying how well this works. I have been using mine made with this design for just on 18 years.

    Making solar filters for total solar eclipses

    Don't worry about the solar eclipse bit. The holder is designed to be secure AND be able to be removed easily without putting any force on the tube or moving the tube. It works perfectly well as a normal white light solar filter holder too.

    cheers
