This convenient kit contains both a Coronado PST and the Coronado AZS Mount with it's tripod, which together comprise everything you need to enjoy the sun! A perfect kit for those who are looking to step into Solar Astronomy for any reason, whether it is the upcoming Solar Eclipse or simple curiosity that has spurred your interest. The PST is not only perfectly optimized for Solar Observation in the H-Alpha Bandwidth, but also incredibly easy to use and grow used to. It uses an inbuilt solar filter that is in fact part of the optical design of the scope, permitting every component of the telescope to have been fully optimized around that singular solar filter. This means that the PST has fully overcome most of the innate issues with filter-aided solar astronomy. This solar-specialized refracting telescope is compact and portable, and so is the AZS mount-tripod combo it's being bundled with! When paired with this efficient mount and tripod, the PST is sure to be a pleasure to work with in your solar astronomy pursuits.
The PST is an excellent solar scope, but it's not the end of the line. Coronado also produces a double-stack enhanced version, and it is a viable upgrade from the splendid scope that is the PST. It is basically the same telescope, but with a double stack filter integrated instead of the standard filter used in the basic PST.
