Solar Telescope Coastal Package
The biggest challenges when viewing our universe is weather conditions and the great distances in space. Fortunately, we live relatively close to a star. Our Sun is the most dynamic of all the celestial bodies we can see from earth. This fact alone makes it interesting to view and study repeatedly. You never know what amazing features you might see. Sun spots, flares, filaments, coronal mass ejections, just to name a few.
The other problem is the weather. While we can’t directly change that, we have built a solar telescope that is less effected by high humidity and hazy conditions. Our Coastal Package is built around our LS80 telescope which is our most popular telescope for viewing the Sun under conditions you will typically find close to the ocean. Not being as susceptible to the coastal conditions as our larger aperture scopes make the LS80 the perfect scope for our coastal package.
If you want to save and share your observations with friends and family, the package is designed for imaging with your camera (not included). The bottom line is that a solar telescope is an instrument you can use to view and study one of the most incredible bodies in our universe. You’ll be amazed at what you will see and wonder why you didn’t buy one sooner.
Optical Telescope Assembly
First, the solar telescope coastal package contains our LS80 optical telescope assemble. Notably this scope has our pressure tuning system that will give you great clear view of the Sun. Our pressure tuning technology will give you an evenly lit surface view of the Sun.
Next, we have included our B1800 blocking filter. Additionally, this gives you the flexibility to use your camera to photograph what you will be seeing.
Also, your solar telescope coastal package comes with a zoom eyepiece. This will give you the ultimate in flexibility as you look at all or part of the disk of the Sun.
We have included our 2.5″ feather touch focuser which will give you the smoothest focusing mechanism available. This will make it easy to focus in on very fine details.
Tripod & Mount
A fresh update to the venerable CGEM mount, the CGEM II EQ Mount has a contemporary, attractive, bold appearance and is capable of carrying Celestron’s higher-end SCT optical tubes (up to 11″) securely and vibration free, which is ideal for both imaging and visual observing. Capable of holding 40 lbs. of payload and slewing at 5° per second, you will be able to instantly point to any of the celestial objects in the database.
Next, we have included our 6 inch dovetail mount to securely attach the telescope on the CGEMII tripod (included). This tripod and mounting system will give you a good solid foundation for your solar telescope.
To finish the solar viewing starter package we have included a tele vue sol-searcher. This will make it easy to locate the Sun safely.
Your solar telescope comes with an aluminium case to protect your investment from being damaged. The components of your telescope fit in to a foam cut out to prevent movement inside the case.
Lunt Hat w/Flap
As a bonus, we have added a Lunt Solar Systems hat with a flap in the back to protect you when you’re out in the Sun.
This package includes everything you will need to start viewing the Sun immediately. Even if the conditions are less than perfect you will get the best view possible of the sun. It will be an unforgettable experience.
