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 10mm blocking filter situated in the solar telescopes 1.25" star diagonal. Together the tunable sub-aperture etalon and the blocking filter produce a < 0.7 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 5 mm, 10 mm, and 15 mm 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 60 mm 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 of active regions, flares, filaments and other surface areas of the sun. The new Rich View system will also allow for spectacular views of the prominences on the solar limb.

Focusing - The Coronado SolarMax 60 has a precisely machined helical focuser at the back of the scope. The focuser has a rubber grip ring to assist in detailed focus movements.

Cemax Eyepiece - The 25 mm Coronado Cemax Eyepiece was built specifically for solar observation. The 25mm Cemax eyepiece generates a magnification of 16x. Coronado offers an entire line of Cemax Eyepieces and a barlow lens so you can finely tune your magnification settings.

Other Accessories - In addition to the Coronado 25 mm Cemax Eyepiece the Coronado SolarMax II also comes with a Hard Carrying case for easy and safe transportation. For the easy alignment of the solar scope on the sun Coronado provides a Sol Searcher view finder. And for easy mounting to a multitude of mounts Coronado provides a brass mounting ring.

Coronado has been pioneering solar observation for years which is why they are always the first to develop industry leading technology and functionality. The SolarMax Solar Telescopes have been used around the world by serious solar enthusiasts and professional research facilities for observation of surface detail and prominences on the Sun in hydrogen-alpha (Ha) light. Powerful but very portable, this high resolution Solar Telescope offers dedicated visual observation of the Sun as well as high quality imaging. We are heading toward solar maximum and the views of the sun are going to get better and better. The Coronado SolarMax 60 II will help you witness this uniquely amazing event!
