That popularity comes from its performance combined with high portability and the superior 0.5 Angstrom bandpass that provides more surface detail. The PST shows the edge of the sun's prominences, as well as filaments and other details on the sun's surface, in high detail. What used to be the sole dominion of professional astronomers is a technology now available to amateurs thanks to the PST.
