What kind of solar filter does the United States Naval Observatory have?

Saw this clip of the VP demonstrating the telescope at Naval Observatory for high school students. Apparantly it has a solar filter setup! It's also interesting that even though the Vice President lives at Naval Observatory, this is likely the first time the VP has been documented to use its telescope.

Also, are there any other public figures or celebrities that are known to dabble in solar astronomy or own telescope with solar filters, hydrogen alpha?
