Coronado PST

Coronado PST Review

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on July 22, 2012
Easy to use. Very good instrument. Optics Planet was extremely accommodating as I originally ordered the 0.5a version and changed my order to the 1.0a version due to affordability.
Pros: Affordable Solar Viewing Solution
Cons: None...

Fantastic views of the Sun

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MO Written on March 6, 2008
The PST quickly became my favorite telescope. When mounted on a lightweight photo tripod, it's easy to check out what has changed on the Sun several times a day. My PST shipped with a 20mm eyepiece, but I usually prefer the higher power view through a 12mm. The scope works very well with medium priced eyepieces.
Pros: Very well built
Cons: You will want a higher power eyepiece...
Would recommend: Yes

The sun in a new light

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on July 25, 2007
Provide this telesope with a sturdy tripod and tripod-head, use the best ocular you can get, darken your head/face during the observation and take time and calm down.
With a little luck you will see movements and changes on the surface or the protuberances within minutes, at least within hours. That's worthwhile !

Pros: easy to use, see astonishing details on solar surface
Cons: less suitable for photography...
Would recommend: Yes
