iOptron Solar 60 60mm f/6 Achro Refractor Telescope with Solar Filter (OTA Only)
Key Features
  • White-Light Solar or Nighttime Viewing
  • Removable Front Polymer Solar Filter
  • 60mm Achromatic Doublet Refractor
  • 360mm Focal Length, f/6 Focal Ratio
iOptron designed the Solar 60 60mm f/6 Achro Refractor Telescope with a removable front solar filter to allow the scope to be used for viewing the Sun with it on or viewing the night sky with it off. The filter blocks harmful UV and IR radiation while simultaneously reducing virtually all of the intense light across the entire visual spectrum from the sun, allowing for safe solar viewing of surface features such as sunspots and super granules. Optically, the OTA is engineered with a doublet achromatic lens system that is fully multi-coated to produce bright and sharp high-contrast images with accurate color rendition across a distortion-free field of view. The Solar 60 is offered here without a mount or tripod, but a Vixen-style dovetail plate is provided to be compatible with a wide variety of mounts.

SAFETY FIRST: Observing the Sun without the proper protection may result in serious personal injury, including permanent eye damage and blindness, and/or damage to equipment. Never point an optic at the sun without an approved solar filter on the front of the optic. For direct solar viewing, viewing the sun through an optic, or when using cameras with an optical viewfinder, ensure your filter is ISO 12312-2 (also written as ISO 12312-2:2015) certified. Never use photographic neutral density filters for direct solar viewing, viewing the sun through an optic, or when using cameras with an optical viewfinder.
