DayStar Solar Scout 60mm Carbon Fiber Dedicated H-Alpha Telescope - Chromosphere Model - SS60C

The DayStar Solar Scout 60mm H-Alpha Dedicated Solar Telescope - Chromosphere is a specialized instrument designed for observing the Sun in the Hydrogen Alpha wavelength, allowing for detailed study of the solar chromosphere.

With a 60mm aperture, this telescope provides high-resolution images of the Sun's surface features, including prominences, filaments, and flares.

Its compact and portable design makes it an excellent choice for on-the-go solar enthusiasts and educational purposes.

The telescope is equipped with advanced filters and optics to ensure safe and precise solar observations.

It offers a convenient and user-friendly experience for those seeking to explore the dynamic nature of our closest star.


Features & Highlights:

  • 60mm Dedicated Solar Telescope: The 60mm aperture ensures a balanced combination of light gathering ability and portability, making it an ideal choice for both backyard astronomers and on-the-go solar enthusiasts. Its dedicated design means it's optimized for solar observation without the need for additional solar filters.
  • 930mm Effective Focal Length: This extended focal length allows for high-powered magnification, providing intricate views of solar features like prominences, filaments, and sunspots. It's a valuable asset for researchers and serious solar observers aiming to delve deep into the intricacies of the sun's chromosphere.
  • Chromosphere Model: Designed specifically for observing the chromosphere, this telescope offers a unique opportunity to study the dynamic and often dramatic events taking place in this layer of the sun. This specialization ensures that users can capture detailed imagery and data for in-depth analysis.
  • Lightweight Optical Tube: The lightweight construction of the optical tube makes it easily transportable to different observation sites. Its portability is a great advantage for those who wish to take advantage of clear skies in various locations, providing a versatile option for solar enthusiasts on the move.
  • Robust and Precision Accuracy: The helical front-focus mechanism not only prevents slipping and rotation of the eyepiece but also ensures that once set, the focus remains stable, allowing for uninterrupted, precise observations of solar phenomena.
  • Solar Bullet Finder: This feature provides a safe and effective way to align the telescope with the sun. By projecting solar images onto a white screen, it simplifies the process of accurately positioning the telescope for optimal solar viewing.
  • 16mm Clear Eyepiece Aperture: The 16mm clear eyepiece aperture offers a comfortable viewing experience while maintaining clarity and detail in solar observations, making it an excellent choice for extended periods of study.
  • Quark Compatibility: The Quark's compatibility with other instruments grants users the flexibility to adapt their setup for different magnifications or observation techniques, providing a versatile platform for a wide range of solar studies.
  • Swap Filters: The ability to easily swap filters broadens the range of observations possible. Users can adjust the bandpass to focus on specific solar features or phenomena, enhancing the telescope's adaptability to various solar events.
  • Adaptability for 2" or Camera Mount: The telescope's adaptability for both 2" eyepieces and camera mounts offers users the option to not only observe but also capture high-quality images and footage of solar activity for further analysis and documentation.
  • Always On-Band with USB Power: The USB power capability ensures a steady and reliable power source, allowing for continuous on-band observations of the sun without interruptions caused by fluctuating power supplies.
  • 110-240VAC Wall Adapter: The wide voltage range of the included wall adapter makes the telescope compatible with different power supplies worldwide, providing added convenience for astronomers in various regions.
  • Optional 24mAh Battery: The optional 24mAh battery option grants users the freedom to conduct solar observations in remote locations or areas without readily available power sources, further expanding the telescope's usability.
  • Tuning Knob: The tuning knob's precise adjustments, with a wing shifting accuracy of +/- 0.5Å, enable users to fine-tune their observations, capturing even finer details and nuances in the sun's chromosphere.
  • LED Indicator: The LED indicator system provides real-time feedback on the telescope's status, offering clear visual cues for power status, warming up, readiness, and any potential faults, ensuring a seamless and user-friendly observational experience.
