DayStar Solar Scout 60mm Double Stack Dedicated H-Alpha Telescope - SS60DS

Introducing the DayStar Solar Scout 60mm-DS H-Alpha Dedicated Solar Telescope, a remarkable achievement in affordability and quality.

Thanks to Daystar's engineering ingenuity, this telescope provides exceptional H-Alpha solar observation without breaking the bank.

The 60mm aperture ensures ample light gathering, while the narrow 'Doublestack' bandpass in all SS60ds scopes guarantees detailed and clear solar imagery.

With the DayStar Solar Scout H-Alpha 60mm-DS, enthusiasts and budding astronomers can now access a high-quality entry-level telescope at an unprecedented price point.

This telescope's cutting-edge design and impressive specifications make it an attractive choice for those eager to explore the wonders of the Sun's dynamic chromosphere without compromising on quality or budget.

Features & Highlights:

  • 60mm Dedicated Solar Telescope: This telescope is finely crafted with a 60mm aperture, striking a balance between light-gathering capability and portability. It caters to backyard astronomers and solar enthusiasts on the move.
  • 930mm Effective Focal Length: With an extended focal length of 930mm, this telescope offers high-powered magnification, revealing intricate details of solar phenomena like prominences, filaments, and sunspots.
  • Doublestack Performance: All SS60ds scopes are equipped with a narrow 'double stack' bandpass, enhancing the clarity and detail of solar imagery without incurring additional expenses.
  • Robust and Precision Accuracy: The helical front-focus mechanism prevents slippage and rotation of the eyepiece, maintaining stable focus once set. This feature ensures uninterrupted and precise observations of solar phenomena.
  • Solar Bullet Finder: This innovative feature projects solar images onto a white screen, simplifying the alignment process and ensuring accurate positioning of the telescope for optimal solar viewing.
  • 16mm Eyepiece Aperture: Offering both comfort and clarity in solar observations, the 16mm clear eyepiece aperture is an excellent choice for extended periods of study.
  • Adaptable for 2" or Camera Mount / Views: The telescope's compatibility with 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, 5v 1.5amp: This feature 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 (Optional 24mAh Battery Available): 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. An optional 24mAh battery further expands the telescope's usability, granting the freedom to conduct solar observations in remote locations.
  • 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. This ensures a seamless and user-friendly observational experience.
