Manufacturer Description

Coronado by Meade SolarMax II 60mm Solar Telescope with RichView system. Includes 5mm Blocking Filter. 60mm diameter Solar Telescope with sub 0.7 angstrom bandwidth filtering for observation of surface detail and prominences on the Sun in hydrogen-alpha (Ha) light.

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.

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. Don't miss out!

      5.0 Mannish was right.




      After 3 weeks of terrible seeing, I finally got a break today and was able to put this little scope to the test. I used a Williams Optics bino viewer and was very happy with the results. The images were very crisp and clear showing a lot of detail on the surface and two very nice prominence 's on the limb. I was unsure about my purchase and thought I should have bought the BF10mm model. After consulting with Mannish who informed me if I saw no vignetting in the images around the full disc of the sun (and i was easily able to see the full disc) why bother to spend the extra $200 on the BF10 model. Coronado even said that the BF10 is a better choice for bino viewing. I'm perfectly happy with this model. I'm very happy with Agena Astro and there professionalism.
