Outline
The PST has been redesigned with increased contrast and image brightness. This ‘little’ telescope is another step toward our goal of making it possible for everyone to, "Experience the Sun our way". The ever changing solar disk presents iself in the PST with tunable views of prominences and surface detail previously unavailable at even 3 times the cost.

Sub angstrom H-A systems have long been cost prohibitive for the amateur. Designs other than the Coronado are difficult to use because of temperature and F-Ratio requirements. Not only does the PST have a bandpass of 1.0 angstrom but it is also thermally stable and requires no more time to operate than putting in a eyepiece and adjusting the focus fits any standard photo video tripod.

The PST represents the same technology and quality that goes into a SolarMax series telescope but with a few unique design characteristics that allows to offer it for less than some premium eyepieces. The PST will show you prominences, active regions, filaments, as well as other surface details – at 1.0 angstrom.

The PST is manufactured from milled aluminium, not plastic! The P.S.T. comes with a built in Sol Ranger for easy alignment and a Kellner eyepiece.
