iOptron Solar 60 Solar Telescope

The Solar 60TM

Computerized Telescope
With solar filter & electronic eyepiece

Ideal for watching the Transit of Venus in June... the last planetary transit in our lifetime.

New from iOptron -- The Solar 60TM computerized telescope system! Now your family or classroom can see sun spots right on a computer screen. The computerized telescope locates and auto-tracks to keep the sun (or moon, planets, and other celestial objects) in view. With heavy solar activity predicted for 2012 -- this is the ideal system to capture video or still photos of the sun spots and their movements. Set it up at home or school and everyone can see the daily changes in the sun spots. The Solar 60TM comes complete with the iE1300 electronic eyepiece and a threaded solar filter to switch to nightime viewing. Also included is a matching orange back pack for easy storage and travel.
