Thanks Pedro for the interesting videos, especially where the SolarView scope is one I used to use for public and school outreach's some years ago.
They were fine scopes and as you confirm are excellent for grab and go.

When are you going to open your museum ???

Cheers
Terry

Those are nice grab and go solar scopes, Pedro. I use my Coronado SolarMax II 60 for the same purpose. It's much lighter, easier to set up and transport and a bit easier to use than the SMII90 is.

Here are a few more images of the Solarview 50 Etalon. I made a special adapter and used it with a Coronado BF15 (on a Taka FS60C tube without the objective lens). It works like a charm and the views are amazing, high contrast FD

Thank you again Pedro for the extra SolarView pics - which show an interesting set-up.

Maybe Daughter wants the Curator job... ??

Cheers
