Coronado Personal Solar Telescope

The Coronado PST was Coronado's attempt to allow everyone to experience the Sun in Hydrogen Alpha wavelength.

Sub angstrom Hydrogen-Alpha systems have long been cost prohibitive for the amateur. Designs other than the Coronado are difficult to use because of temperature and F-Ratio requirements. Not only does the PST have a bandpass of <1.0 angstrom but it is also thermally stable and requires no more time to operate than putting in a eyepiece and adjusting the focus.

The Coronado PST represents the same technology and quality that goes into a Coronado SolarMax series telescope but with a few unique design characteristics that allow us to offer it for less than some premium eyepieces. The PST will show you prominences, active regions, filaments, as well as other surface details. Simply stated, there is no other option for observing the Sun in Hydrogen-Alpha wavelength offering so much performance for so little money.

What do Real Customers Have to Say?

"To be honest I was not expecting too much, bearing in mind the cost and diminutive nature of the scope, I finally set up in the late afternoon. Alignment of the scope is a breeze using the inbuilt sun finder, as I looked through the eyepiece I could see a red sun with a small sunspot but no prominences or H-A detail and then decided to try the tuner, as I rotated the ring the view changed, prominences popped into view! With a little further tweaking filaments, faculae, and orange peel surface came into view in incredible detail! Absolutely brilliant..." - Mr. N. Longshaw, U.K.

The PST is made from milled aluminium, not plastic! The P.S.T. comes with a built in Sol Ranger for easy alignment, a 12mm Kellner eyepiece, and a re-usable box with dye cut foam for safe storage. Optional accessories include a hard travel case, MALTA tabletop mount, CEMAX series eyepieces, and SolarMax 40 for double stacking and narrowing the bandpass. To add a SolarMax 40 you will require the T-Max 40 for attaching the unit directly to the PST.
