works as advertised

  • Excerpt: the scope works well. great detial from the solar flares and the surface. As with any scope it pays to have a few extra quality eye pieces. i am using a 10mm eye piece from another scope i own and am getting good detail and clarity with it. My only complaint with this scope is the plastic/nylon compression screw for the eye piece holder. i am not a big fan of plastic on anything i own.

Fine performance for entry-level price

  • Excerpt: Well packaged from factory. I saved $80 by NOT buying the factory hard case but went to Harbor Freight and buying a 22" stainless steel tool box and trimmed the excess foam from the factory packing. Fit perfectly. Stellar photography is easy. Prominences are amazing easy to view.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Padding, Great Optics, Strong Construction

Excellent H-alpha Solar Telescope

eightbits, B&H Photo
17 June 2012
  • Excerpt: This telescope provides excellent views of the Sun and its features. Given it is the low-end of the Coronado line of solar telescopes, it's performance is amazingly excellent. It is also very easy to use. The only cons for this telescope are: 1) It is very small and light so it tends to wobble a bit while focusing and tuning which can make it annoying to do either. Additionally, significant wind can also cause wobbling even when not focusing and tuning.
  • Pros: Affordable, Easy To Use, Strong Construction, Widely Compatible Adapter
  • Cons: Light, Subpar stock eyepiece

Looking for Icarus

Samnomad, B&H Photo
30 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Now I can see sunspots with my own 'scope and prominences (at the edge of the sun). It is just in time to show the transit of Venus to the grandkids. The viewfinder is handy, but I have to point a little off center to actually see the sun. The sun is comfortably bright to my eyes, but too much for my cameras. I tried 2 USB microscope cameras and a Lumix camera. All overexposed. (Try manual exposure?) The price is great for what you get!

Pleasantly Surprised!!!

AstroNerd, Orion Telescopes & Binoculars
13 May 2012
  • Excerpt: I am a newcomer to backyard astronomy, and I bought this scope in lieu of a very expensive, I-can't-believe-they-make-them-that-big H alpha filter for my 8inch SCT. Based on the fact that the beautiful Hubble images we know and love really look like wisps of smoke and smears through an eyepiece, I wasn't expecting anything too spectacular...but what a surprise I got...The image was fantastic!

  • Excerpt: Just as advertised. I bought this scope for the Venus transit on June 5th. I have viewed the sun through it just about every day and it shows remarkable detail on the surface and along the limb of the chromoshere. A wonderfull addition to my stable of scopes.
