You are bidding on a used Coronado SolarMax 60 solar telescope WITH Coronado 60mm Double stacking Etalon and optional solar spotting scope; and a Kenlock 3000 GLB aluminum and steel tripod.
The telescope is in good cosmetic condition with only some light wear to the clamshell mount and a little scuffing to the various tubes and parts. One of the two nylon tension screws that hold the gross focus tube in place has had its head broken off. It consists of the main scope, a 10mm right angle filter, the narrowband H-alpha filter with richview tuning and 0.7A Bandwidth.
An all-in one solution to get started with solar viewing today!
I do not know very much about telescopes or solar telescope, but I was able to set up the scope, use the spotting scope to look at the sun, and clearly view the sun through the telescope itself. I cannot see any scratching or damage to the lenses, and the solar viewing was good through the scope. The focus is smooth and tight, and all the fittings and screws, minus the single damage nylon screw, appear to operate correctly. Despite its excellent condition and good performance, I am still selling this as-is. Even though these scopes usually sell for thousands of dollars new, because I’m selling it as-is, my price is very reasonable.
Also included is a photographic style Kenlock aluminum and steel tripod, very sturdy and all the functions and locks on it work correctly. It is a totally serviceable mount for this telescope.
