I often see dangerous sun filters on sale on Ebay with 1960/70s scopes, you know the eyepiece type.

I always write to them asking if they can please destroy the filter before selling the scope and send them this link.

Here is a reply I received today, I have never not received a thank you.

Hello Jeremy,

Many thanks for the information. I have ended the listing and will relist once we have excluded any dangerous parts.

We appreciate you taking the time to help us.

Kind regards
