SolarMax II 60 2.4" F/6.6 solar telescope with 5mm blocking filter

Coronado SolarMax II 60mm solar telescopes  are brass and black 400mm focal length 60mm aperture f/6.6 refractor with a large 5mm blocking filter to optimize the performance of Coronado’s unique RichView tuning Hydrogen-Alpha solar filter for visual observing, binoviewing, and imaging. The solar filter has a <0.7 Ångstrom passband, centered on the 6562.8 Ångstrom H-Alpha line. The sub-Ångstrom passband width gives you an ideal balance of prominence and surface detail alike. The filter is thermally stable, so there is no drifting off the H-Alpha line as the filter heats up during use.

 The SolarMax II 60 has a manual 1.25” drawtube that extends for rough focusing. A helical focusing ring around the drawtube then provides the appropriate final fine focusing. This method provides enough back focus to allow both visual observing and imaging with most medium-chip CCD cameras.

 A Coronado Cemax 25mm 1.25” eyepiece is standard equipment, providing a magnification of 16x and a 3.25° field. You can use most 1.25” eyepieces with the Coronado SolarMax II 60, as well. Any good quality 50° field Plössls will work well, as their contrast is generally good and their fields are wide and flat. A hard carrying case is standard equipment to transport and store the 60mm Coronado SolarMax II. A 1/4"-20 thread tripod adapter socket is built into the scope’s clamshell mounting ring to allow using the 6 lb.
