Coronado Personal Solar Telescope (PST)

The Coronado Personal Solar Telescope (PST) is the world's most popular solar telescope with a 1.0 angstrom hydrogen-alpha (Ha) bandpass filter that reveals the dynamic, ever-changing prominences at the edge of the Sun as well as filaments and other surface details.

Features a 40mm dedicated Ha optical system, 30mm internal etalon primary blocking filter, incorporated focuser, bandpass fine adjustment controls and built-in solar viewfinder.

Mounting options include use on a regular photo tripod (scope is threaded for a standard camera 1/4-20 mounting bolt). An optional Vixen-style dovetail is available separately to make it simpler to fit into a standard Astronomy mount saddle.

Please note the Coronado PST is designed primarily for visual use. The focus position is approx 5-10mm above the eyepiece holder; some CMOS models with minimal back focus will work, and some, like the ZWO ASI120 Mini, fit easily into the eyepiece holder. Mounting a DSLR is more of a challenge as the sensor is set deep inside the camera body. Still, it is possible using a Baader Hyperion series eyepiece with an adapter.
