  1. Hi, witch tripod you prefer for the pst ? The Coronado ASZ mount or the orion mini EQ? Thanks.
  2. Hi, do you think the 12 mm televue radian wold be a great eyepiece for a solar scope( coronado pst) to improve the contrast. ( compere to a celestron 12 mm plossl and a 10 mm ethos is too expensif and big) thanks.
  3. Hi, i need a decent mount for the coronado pst solarscope. The scope is small and relatieve light ( about 2kg) does the fine adustments works good to keep the sun centered for a while? Is this mount easy to set up? ( sorry if someone find it a " stupid" question but i just like to know for sure .) thanks!
  4. Thanks! The zoom was excellent with the small scope! i can zoom all the way in and out to the proms! i Will order also a 15 mm eyepiece , and nothing more.
  5. Hi, may i say a last thing to share with you: i discover that almost every thing that has to do with solarscopes is addicting: The small scopes, the big scopes, the medium scopes, the pressure tuners, tilt tuners , double stack filters even the handy build in sol Finder of the pst is sometimes adicting.- i think i will end up with the double stack becource i Will just want to see more surface detail, the biggest " coin" of the pst is i think the small blocking filter, but its Okey.i hope that the double stack is still bright enough ( i hope about 60 percent of THE brightness of the singlestack, thus 40 percent less bright ) i have heard that it also Will make the space arround the disk darker witch i hope it Will let the sun looks better execpt the promences. Thanks!
  6. Hi, i have a PST for aboud nine months. A nice small scope! It give nice contrastly and clear fews and decent manification for it size. I looking forward to double stack the thing. Do someone who have the double stack can sure me if it is worth? Can you see also the so called " surface grandulation" better when stacked? Will i not Be dissepoitnted ? ( can you see full disk? Will the fews not to dark?). Thanks! ( i know it add also a 3D effect. Witch is a nice bonus if the stack works Okey at last)
  7. Hi, does the solarmax double stack REALLY works fine on the PST for visually use? I know that the fews are dimmer as the proms, (i think THE sun should be still bright anough and the stronger contrast you even be able to zoom in more) BUT i heard someting about a small sweetspot when you add the second filter..... So becource of this i am a bit Affrait to add the stack later. Thanks!
  8. Tanks john! I Will go for this one. A salesman in belgum use also a " no brand " planetery zoom with also 40-53 degree with the same scope. The skywatcher version has a little wider: 40-60 degree. But i think i Will go for the first one. ( i hope in the feature they make also a special " alpha-H zoom" that wold be great!)
  9. Hi, i want to buy a lunt/ lunt close zoom eyepiece. But i love to few at the 21.5 mm settings first for fast full disk few with the PST and then zoom in. But are these zooms not so good in the lower settings?? If not i skip it and go for the baader mark 4 zoom or the pentax XF but these Will cost me more... Thanks!!
  10. Hi, Will the planetery zoom 7.2-21.5 lunt clones also works Well in the 21.5-14 mm range? I love to view the sun in lower power first. Thanks annyways for all the advice. I think now that all these are good for the pst. I Will choose one of those three; planetery lunt clone- pentax FX or the baader mark 8-24 mm.
  11. Hi i believe now that the pentax XF zoom is great for altha-H. for a 60 mm alpha-H scope But the pst has only 40 mm Aperture so, i wonder if iTS also works Well in the 6.5- 9.8 mm range? If so, then iTS a must have. Other wise a 11 mm televue and a 25 mm Sirius super plossl ( for fast full disk) is maby a better choice.....? Thanks ! Witch you prefer for THE PST ofcource?
  12. Hi, i have a PST . And have three eyepiece/zoom on my mind: the lunt clone zoom planetery (€138) - televue 11 & 15 mm plossl eyepiece (€190) or the pentax XF 19.5-6.5 zoom (€319 - WEX dond ship to holland) ( i think (?) that you Will loss a lot sharpness if you zoom all the way in -the pst has only 40 mm apenture - and i have heard that the lunt zoom/ clone are not so good in the low power range....? ..) witch one of these 3 you prefer for the PST? Thanks !!
  13. Update. Hi WEX dond ship to holland at this moment. So, maby i Will skip the pentax zoom and go for the cheeper planetery lunt clone or for the cheeper baader zoom (€100 cheeper) or even for the 15 & 11 mm televue plossel eyepiece.... I Will think aboud it.
  14. Update. Try to adjust the tuning wheel slightly to the left or right, while you put the scope in the right position and at the right momend and a bit pations.( maby the position of the sun, seeing eye get used to the wavelenght play also a role but dont know for sure) Good luck to recieve full disk! André from holland.
  15. Hi i had use my PST a few times and i notice that it is ofthen (?) diffucult to few all the features without to have move the trypod all the time ( full disk fewing. If i see a filement to the left , move the trypod, then a prom at the right is gone. And so on. So, is this normal fenomen for the PST? Or has it to to with someting? What do you think? I want to do full disk ( sometimes if allow) without to move the trypod here and there. Thanks for the tip/ sugesstions!! ( i hope also not have to think to buy a other, bigger scope...i just buy the pst and manny people love it)
  16. Hi, i want to buy a good zoom for my coronado pst. Is the pentax xf €319 is worth the money? Or are the lunt clones/ celestron seben clones/ baader mark 4 almost as good? Thanks!!
  17. Hi, l want to buy a zoom eyepiece for my pst. ( and dond want to use normal eyepieses annymore i have the 9 mm X-CEL) i cant buy a planetery zoom 7.2-21.5 ( a lunt zoom clone) for just €135. But i can also go for the pentax XF zoom €319 . Do you think the pentax is worth the money for my coronado pst only? Thanks for the advice!
  18. Hi, is it worth to buy a easy to use DSRL €300 nikon camera as i am a beginner? Can i REALLY see the proms in full glory when i zoom in at camera mode? Can i also see them in the LCD screen of the camera good withoud to do ( mutch) tweaking? Thanks!!! ( for the pst or lunt 50)
  19. Is this mount suitable for the coronado pst alfha -h telescope?
  20. Do the PST also work Well with a cheeper zoom? Then i can save my money to buy the baader hyerion 4 instead.
  21. Hi, do you recommanded to buy a sky watcher 8-24 mm ( hope that iTS not made in China) or for a bit more the celestron zoom ( made in. China?) for my coronado pst alpha H scope? ( if the sky watcher is not made in china, maby iTS better then both the seben and celestron(?!) )
  22. Hi, is the lunt 50 mm 400 BF and lunt 16 mm eyepiece a good choice for visually use? Or do you prefer the fiews of the coronado PST? Thanks!
  23. Thank! When i order the PST, i think i beginning with a cheeper eyepiece or zoom, ( 15 mm made 4000 plossl or /and sky watcher zoom 8-24 mm €84!) instead of going for highe power , if i beleave that i can crank up the power ,espesially to see more proms at the edge - witch i think is amazing -MABY i will take a chance / risk another time.
