When it comes to observing the sun, we also offer many different types of eyepieces that are specialized for use with h-alpha equipment.  Available in fixed focal lengths and zoom, these eyepieces are specially designed and coated.  They optimize contrast by minimizing the number of components and are designed to not create residual reflections and spurious light near the image.  They add the ultimate in contrast enhancement for the solar observer.  You can also find specialized barlow lenses and diagonals here as well.
