SolarMax II 60mm Double Stack Solar Telescope with RichView system and 10mm Blocking Filter

Fully integrated Ha telescope 60mm aperture with one internal etalon filter and one external etalon filter, BF15, F/6.6, 400mm FL. Wt. 6lbs. Length 16.75". Clamshell mounting rings, Sol Ranger, Tmax, 25mm Cemax eyepiece, & travel case included. <.5A bandwidth. Telescope can be used without the external etalon filter attached working at <.7A bandwidth.

SolarMax II Hydrogen-Alpha Telescopes feature the patented RichView Tuning System on all internal and external Etalons (the Etalon is the heart of the Coronado solar filtering system). Precisely tunable on either side of the H-a band for the highest contrast views of active regions, flares, filaments and other surface features or quickly retune for spectacular images of prominences on the solar limb. Double stacked models provide even more contrast and detail by operating at less than .5 Angstrom bandpass.

Used around the world by serious solar enthusiasts and professional research facilities alike for observation of surface detail and prominences on the Sun in hydrogen-alpha (Ha) light. Powerful but very portable, this high resolution Solar Telescope offers dedicated visual observation of the Sun as well as high quality imaging.

The new Meade Coronado II represents a breakthrough in solar observing with the new and revolutionary RichView tuning assembly. This patented system allows direct tuning of the primary filter etalon. No other commercially available Ha telescope can provide the tuning range and accuracy of the SolarMax II. Now you can tune for the highest contrast views of active regions, flares, filaments, and other surface detail, or quickly and easily re-tune for prominences on the solar limb.

This fully integrated double stack system has the added advantage of being able to operate at a less restrictive < .7A bandwidth by simply removing the external etalon. In this way image brightness is increased, enhancing the visibility of fainter limb detail.

The stunning bright red views through a Coronado Ha telescope display astounding surface and limb detail especially when the Sun is in an active phase. The sun is now heading for Solar Maximum, when activity will be at it's best. Don't miss out!!

This very high quality 60mm personal solar observatory features an 400mm focal length, f/6.6 focal ratio. Includes mounting rings, Cemax 25mm eyepiece, Sol Ranger solar finder and carry case. Weight is 2.72 kgs.
