The Coronado SolarMax II is a serious instrument built for someone looking to see the finest areas of detail on our sun. Prominences, flares, filaments and ever changing surface areas of the sun will all be brought to you in high def with the SolarMax.

The Coronado SolarMax 60 II is two part solar telescope system. The telescope body incorporates a tunable sub-aperture etalon in its body. This tunable etalon works in conjunction with a 5mm blocking filter situated in the solar telescopes 1.25″ star diagonal. Together the tunable sub-aperture etalon and the blocking filter produce a < .7 Angstrom passband which yields an optimal balance of prominence and surface detail.

Blocking Filter – The Blocking Filter is one of the features on the Coronado SolarMax Series of Solar Telescopes that influences cost. The SolarMax 60 can be sold with a 5mm, 10mm and 15mm blocking filter. Larger blocking filters are better suited to capture additional image detail and contrast as well as enhancing the imaging capabilities of the scope.

RichView Tuning – The newly re-designed Coronado SolarMax II 60mm Solar Telescope with RichView system is a great step forward in solar telescope development. The Rich View Tuning Method allows you to zero in on the most precise wavelength of light for each area of the sun on either side of the hydrogen-alpha (Ha) band by tuning the primary filter etalon with an adjustment lever on the side of the scopes body. This functionality assists in tuning in the highest contrast views o
