Coronado- SolarMax III 70mm
 
02:08
SHOP HERE: http://bit.ly/2vQeOK4 The SolarMax III (SMIII) is a 70mm F/5.7 refractor equipped with 60mm external hydrogen – alpha (H-α) filters. Available in both single-stacked (0.7Å) and double-stacked (0.5Å) bandpasses and either 10mm or 15mm blocking filters. What makes the SMIII standout? The SMIII 70mm has a new two-speed rack & pinion focuser which creates a more user-friendly interaction with the telescope. The two-speed, 2” focuser has both coarse and fine focus controls allowing the user to get a more precise focus, critical for both solar imaging and visual observing. Additionally, the SMIII 70mm includes only external “True” H-α etalon filters giving higher contrast views and sharper features compared with models using smaller internal H-α etalon designs. Experience darker backgrounds, sharper features, and higher contrast with the new SolarMax III series telescope. RichView Tuning The SMIII 70mm also includes Coronado’s patented RichView™ tuning allowing direct tuning of the primary etalon filter. The patented RichView™ tuning technology provides additional tuning range and an overall better way of adjusting the filters bandpass. No other commercially available H-α telescope can provide the tuning range and accuracy of the new SolarMax III telescope. Now you can tune for the highest contrast views of your favorite solar features without sacrificing image quality. Double-Stack Option Double Stacked models ((0.5Å bandpass) include two “True” external etalon filters. One etalon filter equipped with our patented RichView tuner and second etalon with tip-tilt tuning using Coronado’s T-Max tuner. Whether you are focusing on the solar edge or surface features in the chromosphere, the SolarMax III 70mm is the solar scope for you. Since both etalon filters are now external to the telescope, you can easily remove both filters and rear blocking filter diagonal to use the scope as a normal refractor for night time astronomy. It’s like having two scopes in one!

Meade Instruments- Series 6000 APO Refractors
 
01:35
SHOP HERE: http://bit.ly/2tdg3Or The Series 6000 Apochromatic Refractors are some of the best crafted refractors on the market. Each refractor is individually constructed and tested to ensure that they meet our highest standards, both optically and mechanically. These telescopes were built with the observer and imager in mind. With the three element optical design using the highest grade extra-low dispersion optical glass, false color is virtually eliminated, yielding astonishing color correction, contrast, and sharpness. New to the Series 6000 Triplets APOs is the proprietary 2.5” dual-speed rack-and-pinion focuser. The focuser comes with a 10:1 fine focus knob for precise focusing. It includes millimeter markings on the drawtube to assist with focusing accuracy and is also rotatable which allows for easy framing of the photographed object. New for this focuser is the 2” self-center locking ring that allows diagonals or cameras to be well centered to the optical train every time the locking ring is engaged. Standard equipment also includes a fully extendable dew shield, mounting rings, a Vixen-style dovetail, and an aluminum hard carry case to protect your investment when not in use. In addition to the deluxe focuser the Series 6000 Apochromatic Refracting Telescopes now have an optional 0.8x Focal Reducer/Field Flattener for photographic purposes. For wide field images the 2” focal reducer/flattener will reduce the 80mm refractor from f/6 to an f/4.8 and the 3” model will reduce the f/7 115mm and 130mm refractors to f5.5. The new reducer will optically flatten the images yielding pin-point stars to the edge of your photographic frame. The Series 6000 Apochromatic Refractors will fill the need of the most discerning astronomer. For crisp wide-field observing and imaging, nothing can beat a true three-element Apochromatic Refractor (APO). Meade Series 6000 ED APO Triplets are among the finest available optically at any price.
