Solar Telescope High Desert Package
If you want to see our closest star in all its glory, this package is for you. We call it the High Desert package because it is designed to take advantage of great viewing conditions. The package is designed around our LS100 dedicated solar telescope. This scope has a 100mm aperture and with our exclusive Doppler tuning, will give you 3D like views of the surface of the Sun.
Viewing the Sun is unlike viewing any other celestial body. The features on the surface of the Sun are ever changing and always amazing. Mass coronal ejections, solar flairs, Sun spots, filaments, spicules, and more will all be visible from time to time through your LS100. Since you can’t predict exactly when you’ll see these features, you’ll always be surprised when you find them. Each viewing will be a new experience.
When you advance to the point of sharing your discoveries with others, this package is designed for imaging with your camera (not included). This is a great way to record and distribute the incredible features you will see. So what are you waiting for? The universe isn’t getting any younger.
Optical Telescope Assembly
First, the solar telescope high desert package contains our LS100 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 and 3D like views 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 high desert 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 1.5″ feather touch focuser which will give you the smoothest focusing mechanism available. This will make it easy to focus in on very fine details.
Next, we have included our 12 inch dovetail mount to securely attach the telescope on the CGX 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.
Mount & Tripod
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.
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. This scope will give you amazing views of the sun, especially in good viewing conditions. It will be an unforgettable experience.
