Excellent first time solar scope

Ron Dzen, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I received the Coronado PST as a gift from my wife. I was blown away by the initial viewing of the sun. Solid flares are easy to view and filaments can be seen. Given my experience with visible light telescopes, I purchased an inexpensive CCD Camera specifically for astro viewing.

Over hyped

  • Excerpt: One might think that there are endless features to see in a given viewing time. Ufortunately, with the 40mm lens, with the 20 mm optic gives a nice view of teentire sun, but little elxe. If careful, one can indeed see some features, but they are extremely small - at least for me they were.
  • Pros: Accurate, Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Details Are Hard To Detec

  • 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

A "WOW" moment for an old amature

  • Excerpt: I've been a nighttime amateur astronomer and telescope builder for over 50 years. I occasionally projected the sun onto paper to observe something interesting like the Venus transit. But when a friend allowed me to look at the Sun through his PST I was overwhelmed.

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
