Comments about Coronado SolarMax II 60 Double Stack Solar Telescope with RichView Tuning:
Once you figure out how to use the scope it works nicely. I'd recommend to Meade to improve the manual to make it easier to get started. the current version is very rudementary. The scope comes with one eyepiece but you might invest into a better one with a bit shorter focal length. I use the scope for photograhy too and was a bit disapointed that prime focus photography with a Canon EOS camera is not possible, the inward travel of the focuser is insufficient. After some experimenting I found that using a 2x barlow lens fixes this problem. Eyepiece projection photography works too. However with eyepiece projection light intensity got quite low and high ISO settings and longer exposer times >1/100sec are needed. Overall, it is a nice project to learn how to handle this special scope technology and it leads interesting results. Once you figure it out it is a 4-5 rating but due to lack of good documentation I give it a 3.
