The Coronado PST is hands down the best solar telescope for the money in the world. While almost all refractors and most reflecting telescopes can be used with a Coronado H-alpha filter, no other telescope has been designed with all its optical aberrations and coatings optimized as H-Alpha. Most nighttime telescopes, when used at H-alpha, will not have the image contrast exhibited by a Coronado PST nor the image quality. Most broadband coatings, used on such telescopes, will have reduced effectiveness at this wavelength and telescopes (particularly reflectors) not specifically designed for solar viewing, will exhibit unnecessary scattering and spurious light transmission. Coronado solar telescopes serve to enhance the view of the Sun for you, your family, and friends. The telescopes provide an easy and portable set up that is always ready right out of the box.
The Coronado PST (Personal Solar Telescope) is the little scope with the BIG image. It incorporates state-of-the-art patented technology to provide superb views of both Solar surface detail and prominence's. Sub angstrom H-A systems have long been cost prohibitive for the amateur. The Coronado PST represents the same technology and quality that goes into a SolarMax series telescope, but with a few unique design characteristics that allow us to offer it for less than some premium eyepieces. The Coronado Personal Solar Telescope will show you prominence's, active regions, filaments, as well as other surface details. The Coronado PST telescope is made from milled aluminum, not plastic!
