Coronado SolarMax 60 H-Alpha Filter System with BF10 & T-Max Tuner - The SolarMax60 has 60mm of clear aperture, with a wavelength of 6562.8A (H-alpha) and a bandwidth of <0.7A. Threaded to fit the TeleVue Pronto or TV76, but can fit on other instruments with proper adapter plate (sold separately). This package comes with a BF-10 & TMax tuner, and is maximized for a scope with a focal length of 1000mm and under.

SolarMax 60 - Our mid-sized filter, SolarMax 60, provides greater resolution and opportunities for resolving detail at higher magnification than the SolarMax 40. By matching the SolarMax 60 with the appropriate Blocking Filter.

The SolarMax 60 can be used to adapt most telescopes under 3000mm to H-Alpha observing. The front mounted SolarMax and rear blocking filter. Almost all telescopes will require an adaptor plate in order to attach the SolarMax, these are available from Coronado or through your dealer. The SolarMax includes a T-Max de-tuning device. Some events on the Sun,- notably active flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs), are extremely fast moving. If such features occur on the disc of the Sun, their high velocity towards the observer results in their wavelength being Doppler shifted shorter than Ha. The T-Max allows the user to de-tune the SolarMax slightly to bring such phenomena into better visibility.
