Product information

Once a year, Sky and Telescope magazine reviews new product introductions and through its rigorous evaluation process, identifies 25 items worthy of its prestigious "HOT Product 2011" award. Meade is proud to announce that our Coronado PST - Double Stack was chosen to receive this award. The fact that the PST was the only solar observation product chosen this year makes the award even more special. Sky and Telescope summarizes its review by stating that the double-stacked PST is "...in a class by it self..." Its optical performance is better than "... telescopes costing significantly more money". The 0.5A PST represents the same technology and quality that goes into a SolarMax series telescope, but with a few unique design characteristics that allow us to offer it for less than some premium eyepieces. The PST will show you prominences, active regions, filaments, as well as other surface details. Specifications: Objective focal length 400 mm Clear Aperture 40 mm Wavelength of Operation 656.3 nm (H-alpha) Nominal Spectral Bandwidth of Operation <0.5A Blocking Efficiency 10-5 Internal optical re-focusing provides compatibility with most 1.25" eyepieces. Built in Sun finder fully multi-coated doublet bottom thread 1/4-20 for standard fit to any photographic tripod Dimensions of Main Body 15" L x 2.1" W x 3" H Weight 3lbs 20mm Kellner Eyepiece included with PST Scope
