Hand-picked Daystar SolarScout SS60-ds H-alpha solar scope ***EU SELLER***

Recommended Posts

Price of this item is 900 EUR plus shipping.

***Dear reader, this item is in the European Union (Hungary)!***
The price is certainly higher than that of a new scope bought in the USA from the manufacturer directly, that is because I paid the price with import taxes and customs. So if you are in America, you probably will have better offers.
However if you are in the European Union, this item is cheaper than buying a new one and you needn’t worry about additional taxes or customs!

A perfect, tested Daystar SolarScout SS60-ds H-alpha scope is for sale.

I had a previous one which was sent back to Daystar. I got this item as a replacement in 2020. September, this is working perfectly.
Needs only a diagonal+eyepiece and a mount.
This scope is one of the cheapest entry-level H-alpha solar scopes with usable diameters.
Its unique design provides excellent view, the only drawback is that the heated tuner needs time and electricity (a power bank or network).

- Diameter: 60mm
- Focus: 930mm due to the internal telecentric lenses
- Single-stacked
- Has a built-in Daystar Quark Chromosphere H-alpha etalon
- Integrated Sun finder
- FWHM: about 0.5 angström
- Can be tuned between -0.5 and +0.5 angströms in 0.1 steps. For me, the center setting was just perfect
- You can charge it with any mobile charger providing 1.5A current and a micro-USB plug
- USB to USB-micro cable and original, US-plug charger included
- Can be operated with 1.25” eyepieces
- Doesn’t include eyepiece and diagonal
- The Celestron mount in the picture is not for sale :)
- 3 years USA factory warranty from 2020. 03. (or from the date of the replacement which was in 2020. 09.)
The attached picture was captured with this very scope and with an ASI120MM cam. The picture is not of great quality, I was still learning the subtleties of solar imaging at that time...

I can accept wire transfer and PayPal as well. In the case of the latter, just use the ‘business option’ so that I pay the fees! (This doesn’t increase the price of course but provides an extra protection for you)

The new price in the EU is approximately 980 EUR.
