  • Description

    Meade announces an incredible breakthrough in solar observing with the introduction of the revolutionary RichView™ tuning method, built into every new Coronado SolarMax II. Now you can zero in on the most precise wavelength of light for each area on either side of the hydrogen-alpha (Ha) band for the highest contrast views of active regions, flares, filaments and other surface features - or quickly retune for spectacular images of prominences on the solar limb. No other commercially available Ha telescope provides the tuning range and accuracy of the SolarMax II.

     

    The patented RichView™ tuning method works by directly tuning the etalon, the heart of the Coronado Ha filter system, which gives you greater tuning range and detail than that found on other solar telescopes.

     

    Solar activity has increased dramatically over the last year. Don't miss out on what experts say could be the best solar maximum in many years.
