Choice of Blocking Filter

Coronado by Meade SolarMax II 60mm Solar Telescope with RichView system is available in three configurations of blocking filter: 5mm, 10mm and 15mm. This double stacked unit excels at observation of solar surface detail with a 0.5 angstrom bandpass. Features two H-alpha etalon filters, one internal and one external.

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 (Hα) light. Powerful but very portable, this high resolution Solar Telescope offers dedicated visual observation of the Sun as well as high quality imaging.



Breakthrough in Solar Observation

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 Hα 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.

Double Stack System

This fully integrated double stack system has the added advantage of being able to operate at a less restrictive <0.7A bandwidth by simply removing the external etalon. In this way image brightness is increased, enhancing the visibility of fainter limb detail.

Stunning Detail

The stunning bright red views through a Coronado Hα 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!
