Features

The Coronado Personal Solar features a telescope with 400 mm focal length and 40 mm aperture f/10 refractor. It offers an integrated hydrogen alpha solar filter using a full aperture energy rejection filter and a 20 mm clear aperture internal etalon. The achromatic doublet objective lens is featured with full multicoating technology. The filter has a <1.0 Angstrom passband which provides balanced views of prominences and surface detail alike. In addition to this, the 5 mm clear aperture of the blocking filter portion of H-alpha system attached to the focal length of the telescope is featured to provide full disk views of the Sun. It features 2.9 arc seconds resolution. This telescope offers integrated optical focusing where it gathers dust or grit during windy daytime observing sessions. The Coronado Personal Solar features a rotary collar on the optical tube which allows fin-tuning of the filter etalon and is said to be for producing sharpest and highest contrast image. The Coronado CEMAX eyepiece is recommended for quality observing as it is said to produce optimized high contrast solar viewing of subtle prominence and surface detail. The internal modified Coronado Sol Ranger Sun Finder allows the Sun’s image to be centered in the eyepiece. This telescope utilizes a 1.25 inches Kellner eyepiece.

Additional features

The Coronado Personal Solar features recommended visual accessories which include 18 mm CEMAX 1.25 inches enhanced eyepiece, 12 mm CEMAX 1.25 inches enhanced eyepiece and 25 mm CEMAX 1.25 inches enhanced eyepiece.
