The SMIII has a new two-speed rack & pinion focuser which creates a more user-friendly interaction with the telescope. The two-speed, 2" focuser has both coarse and fine focus controls allowing the user to get a more precise focus, critical for both solar imaging and visual observing.
SolarMax III 70DS
SolarMax III 90DS
The SolarMax III 70 (SMIII) is a 70mm f/5.7 refractor equppied with 60mm external Hydrogen - alpha (H-a) filters. Available in both single-stacked (<0.7Å) and double-stacked (<0.5Å) bandpasses and either 10mm or 15mm blocking filters.
The SolarMax III 90 (SMIII) is a 90mm f/8.9 refractor equppied with 90mm external Hydrogen - alpha (H-a) filters. Available in both single-stacked (<0.7Å) and double-stacked (<0.5Å) bandpasses and either 15mm or 30mm blocking filters.
PREPARE YOURSELF WITH CORONADO SOLAR GEAR & EXPERIENCE
SOLAR OBSERVATION AT ITS FINEST
Coronado has been developing H-alpha solar filters and associated technologies for the professional market for over forty years. We provide creative and innovative optics specific to the needs of both the amateur and professional solar observer.
P.S.T. (Personal Solar Telescope)
The P.S.T. is a Coronado innovation! Experience the world's most popular telescope to observe the Sun. Study of the solar disk is now within the reach of the amateur astronomer. 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 (Ha) light.
The SolarMax III (SMIII) has a new two-speed rack & pinion focuser which creates a more user-friendly interaction with the telescope. The two-speed, 2" focuser has both coarse and fine focus controls allowing the user to get a more precise focus, critical for both solar imaging and visual observing.
Additionally, the SMIII includes only external "True" Hydrogen-alpha etalon filters giving higher contrast views and sharper features compared with models using smaller internal Hydrogen-alpha etalon designs. Experience darker backgrounds, sharper features, and higher contrast.
"Cielo y Tierra"
"Cielo y Tierra" are outreach expeditions. Their aim is to invite people to think outside of the box.
This all female team take expeditions to remote areas with sustainable transportation to share visions of the cosmos!
With Meade’s P.S.T. they teach thousands of people about solar astronomy!
Sunlit Earth, by Charlie Bates Solar Astronomy Project, is an appreciation of all the ways in which we observe our world using reflected, diffracted, absorbed, and refracted light from the Sun's visible spectrum.
With Coronado Solar Telescopes, they are doing great work teaching thousands about the Sun!
The revolutionary RichView™ tuning method, built into every new Coronado SolarMax II brings solar viewing to a new level. Now you can zero in on the most precise wavelength of light for each area on either side of the hydrogen-alpha (Ha) band for the highest contrast views of active regions, flares, filaments and other surface features or quickly retune for spectacular images of prominences on the solar limb. No other commercially available Ha telescope provides the tuning range and accuracy of the SolarMax II.
