Coronado PST Double Stack - 0.5A H-Alpha Solar Telescope

The double stacked Personal Solar Telescope (PST) from Coronado Solar is one of the most accessible options available for H-Alpha solar viewing and imaging. This model of PST has been designed from the ground up with the goal of creating a telescope fully optimized to be the ideal instrument for H-alpha bandwidth solar astronomy, and it shows on every level of performance. The double stack model, as suggested by its name, uses a double stacked 0.5 angstrom bandpass h-alpha solar filter as an integrated component of its optics. The PST shows prominence and solar surface details with a stunning level of clarity and sharpness, and features a built in solar viewfinder as well as a 40mm external tunable Etalon, a 20mm Kellner eyepiece, an integrated focuser, and bandpass fine adjustment controls.

Questions & Answers

Ask a Question
  • Can you attach a dove tail mount and put it on an equatorial mount?

    Yes, this setup would be able to reach infinity focus with your DSLR and PST.

  • Is it possible to use a binocular viewer directly with this PST? If not, is there a special adaptor available that would allow using a binocular viewer? And still reach prime focus?

    You can use a binoviewer on a PST. You would use a 1.25" nosepiece to connect them.
