Coronado PST: Personal Solar Telescope (<1.0Å ), With Case
This package includes the PST along with its dedicated hard carry case. A great deal to keep your scope safe while traveling or storing.
The Personal Solar Telescope (PST) is a Coronado innovation. The world's most pop ular telescope to observe the Sun. This 40mm diameter highly portable dedicated solar telescope features completly internal non-removable and student safe solar filtering optics with a 1.0 angstrom hydrogen-alpha (Ha) bandpass for great surface detail. The PST will show you the dynamic, ever changing prominences at the edge of the Sun as well as filaments and other surface details in amazing detail, all in the brilliant and distinctive red color of hydrogen-alpha light.
Study of the solar disk is now within the reach of the amateur astronomer. The PST represents the same technology and quality that goes into a SolarMax series telescope available to the new solar astronomer at the cost of some single premium eyepieces.
Features a 40mm diameter dedicated Ha optical system with 30mm internal etalon primary blocking filter and incorporated focuser and bandpass fine adjustment controls and built in solar viewfinder. 400mm focal length, f/10 focal ratio, with Kellner eyepiece. Tripod not included.
Mounting options include use on a standard photo tripod (scope is threaded for a standard camera 1/4-20 mounting bolt), use of a Coronado Malta table top tripod (sold separately) or the Meade DSM mount with computerized Autostar and GoTo technology. A custom hard case is additionally available separately- see stock number PSTC. Open up a whole new world of astronomy with the Coronado PST.
Personal Solar Telescope
>10-5 from EUV/IR
The PST is the latest innovation from Coronado. This 'little' telescope is another step toward our goal of making it possible for everyone to, "experience the Sun our way." Sub angstrom H-A systems have long been cost prohibitive for the amateur. Designs other than the Coronado are difficult to use because of temperature and F-Ratio requirements. Not only does the PST have a bandpass of <1.0 angstrom but it is also thermally stable and requires no more time to operate than putting in a eyepiece and adjusting the focus.
The PST comes with: * Built in Sol Ranger for easy alignment, * 12.5mm eyepiece, * Re-usable box with dye cut foam for safe storage. Optional accessories include a hard travel case, MALTA tabletop mount, CEMAX Series Eyepieces, and SolarMax 40 for double stacking and narrowing the bandpass. To add a SolarMax 40 you will require the T-Max 40 for attaching the unit directly to the PST. PST Specifications: * Aperture: 40mm * Focal length: 400mm * F/Ratio: F/10) * Bandwith: <1A or < 0.5A * Thermal Stability: 0.005 A/C * Blocking: Full blocking >105 from EUV to far IR
