  • Excerpt: This is myfirst solar telescope. I have a very old (1979) Celestron C8, so I am familiar with basic uses. I recently was at a daytime sky watching "party" and saw somwe very sophisticated scopes and great views of the sun. I decided to put my toe in the water. I do not regret it.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Well Made

Fine performance for entry-level price

canyonraven, Adorama
26 March 2013
  • 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
