The Solar 60TM computerized telescope with solar filter & optional electronic eyepiece. Tracking daily Sun Spots at home or the classroom. Ideal for travelling to see transit and solar eclipses!
The SmartStar® Solar 60TM GOTO telescope comes with iOptron proprietary Alt-Azimuth Mount, a.k.a. The CubeTM. This compact mount design is one of the most functional and flexible units on the market. Sky & Telescope Magazine named it “Hot Product 2008”. Both axis motors are built into a small single unit with optical encoders that provide accurate GOTO and tracking. The mount is universally compatible with all telescopes using a dovetail connector plate.
Made with the most durable filter on the market, this system allows you to see the solar photosphere with outstanding detail. Watch sunspots change from day to day. Follow these magnetic giants as they rotate across the disk of the sun, it’s truly an amazing view! The thread-on solar filter assures eye safety during the observation, yet easy to remove for terrestrial and nighttime viewing. It also serves as a lens cap.
With iOptron's Solar 60TM computerized telescope system, now your family or classroom can see sun spots right on a computer screen. The computerized telescope locates and auto-tracks to keep the sun (or moon, planets, and other celestial objects) in view. This is the ideal system to capture video or still photos of the sun spots and their movements. Set it up at home or school and everyone can see the daily changes in the sun spots. The Solar 60TM telescope comes complete with the iE1300 electronic eyepiece and a threaded solar filter to switch to nightime viewing. Also included is a matching orange back pack for easy storage and travel.
