Coronado by Meade SolarMax II 90mm Solar Telescope with RichView system. Includes 30mm Blocking Filter. The incredible Coronado SolarMax 90 series telescopes are the largest H-alpha (Ha) telescope ever to be mass-produced and are now available with the patented RichView tuning system. This awesome solar observatory features a sub .7 angstrom bandpass.

Used around the world by serious solar enthusiasts and professional research facilities alike for observation of surface detail and prominences on the Sun in hydrogen-alpha (Ha) light.
