Coronado PST, view the closest star to Earth safely!
Have you always wondered what the closest star to Earth looked like, where our energy and heat comes from and what has sustained life on earth for billions of years? This is possible with the Coronado PST solar telescope!
Coronado telescopes, including the PST have all their internal optics equipped for solar observing, so there is little need for additional solar optics. With a 40mm diameter and non removable internal optics, this telescope has a 1.0 Angstrom bandpass which is excellent for hunting down surface details. Among these include sunspots, flares, and numerous other fluctuations on the surface of the sun. If you are interested in one of these scopes, the best place to order one is Woodland Hills Camera and Telescopes at the following link:
We have also included a video demonstration of the PST to show amateur astronomer enthusiasts. This video gives a great explanation of how the optics work within the OTA and how they're unique to Coronado. We hope you enjoy this solar masterpiece and get prepared for solar maximum!
