PST got!

Recommended Posts

Hello,
I just got a PST, I just tried it, and ... what a fantastic image, it seems that something so small can provide such a beautiful image! that sun so tiny in the image of the PST that it seems like a tiny living being with a lot of life !! how much beauty
The only thing that has been a bit uncomfortable (I think it shows some black out) was the eyepiece that came standard with the PST, a 20mm Coronado, I would like you to recommend me some good eyepiece, without that annoying effect of kidney been.
What magnifications are good with this wonderful little solar telescope?
What kind of eyepieces? ploss, rasdem, wide angle ...?
Thank you very much for all your advice
Paul

Great little scope. I enjoyed an 11mm Televue Plossl with my PST. Very sharp and just about the right mag I think. Eye relief a little tight if you use glasses.

Congrats on getting into Ha solar. You will love the views. Our star produces the most dynamic views of any astronomical object, in my opinion ?

It is the fact that you can almost detect things changing before your eyes.

Please take note: solar Ha aperture fever is extremely expensive ?

Glad that it is delivering. Fantastic little scopes.

I when a bit over the top and got a Baardar 8 to 24mm zoom. One eyepiece does everything!

Lots to look forward to!. A zoom eyepiece is well worth trying, it covers the complete best range of magnifications for a PST.   :icon_biggrin:

Thank you for all your comments, this small PST is transformed into a powerful solar tool, I really like its manageability, and little weight, I think it's an advantage ...
Best regards
Paul

Simple plossls (or orthos) will work very well with your PST - as mentioned above your only concern is short eye relief at higher magnifications. TeleVue plossls are particularly effective - but not cheap. Other brands (Meade/Revelation/Vixen/SW etc plossls) will also perform well - shop around and you'll see what great value they are.

you can say that again, 10mm cost me a serious amount of overtime!

Sounds great, something I wish to try at a later date, white light only at present.

Would love a look through an Ha scope at some point to see what I am missing.

Welcome to Ha, it's very addictive and a lovely way to observe on sunny days ( whenever !)

My Quark is in Ireland, but is being held by customs because a certain company didn't include VAT of 23% on the invoice. I've had to contact a Customs Clearance Agency and ask them to provide customs with a clearance certificate. That cost me 50 euros. Once customs have the certificate and ive paid the VAT, they will send my Quark.
