Welome to The DayStar Filters Shopping Cart.
DayStar has been the worlds' leading manufacturer of narrow bandpass solar filters for over 40 years. Started in 1973 by Del Woods, Daystar has been making sub-angstrom bandpass Hydrogen Alpha filters and other wavelengths for the education, research and space industry in continuous operation ever since.
ICSTARS Astronomy owners, Vic and Jen Winter bought the company in 2006 and have been integrating new technologies ever since. The new DayStar is aimed at perserving the tried and true optical processes developed by Mr. Woods, while improving the client interface and controls for higher precision and easier use in application.
DayStar Filters have flown in space on numerous spaceflight missions including Space Shuttle Challenger mission STS-51F; Black Brant 5C, Black Brant 9 suborbital sounding rockets.
While back on earth, Daystar Filters and telescopes are in use all around the world by schools, universities and amateur astronomers to look at the sun every day.
