The Questar comes with a Questar brand eyepiece and a Celestron reticle eyepiece, both of which provide roughly the same magnification (50×, not the 40× claimed on the Questar eyepiece barrel).

eyepiece. Coronado

guarantees the performance

of this and any CEMAX

eyepiece. It is possible

that other 1.25” eyepieces will not come to focus.
Begin your set up by inserting an eyepiece and
adjusting the thumbscrew until secured.

2. The PST

has been developed with an internal

version of our Sol Ranger

sun-spotting device.

is a small opaque

window. The light from the Sol Ranger

will project

a bright but harmless ball of light on this window
when the sun is lined up. Try to get the ball of light
into the dead center for best alignment.

4. Once the telescope is pointed at the sun you
need only to adjust the focus knob on the lower rear
portion of the PST

. This is the only external portion

of the PST

you will ever need to adjust. All of the

focusing is done via this knob. By looking through
the eyepiece and adjusting the focusing knob you
will be able to bring the Sun into sharp focus – you
will know you are focused when the edge of the disk
appears solid and sharply defined. You will need to
adjust the focus for different focal length eyepieces.

tabletop mount you may skip this section. The PST

Coronado Safety Warnings

As with all of our solar viewing products the PST

has been built with safety as the top priority. This
instrument was tested and sealed at our facilities as
a complete, safe, and working unit. Do not attempt
to disassemble the PST


Doing so will void your

warranty and may compromise your safety.
Coronado is obsessed with safety and you should
be too. Details of our safety specifications can be
found at www.coronadofilters.com. Never use a
solar filter unless the manufacturer is able to
provide such information. Before each use make
sure the PST

does not appear damaged in any

way – if you have any questions please contact
Coronado or your dealer. It is possible to attach an

combination to your PST

provide views at ~<0.6Å. In a few situations you
may need to return both PST

& SM40

to the

manufacturer for 'matching'. There is a nominal
charge for this service.


Cleaning the PST

should be done with a fine

camel hair brush to remove any dirt from the
objective. High quality lens cleaner and a soft cloth
can also be used on the objective and the body
itself. Take care of the PST

as you would any high

quality optical instrument and the views will last a

What You Will See With

The Coronado Personal Solar Telescope


The filtering of the PST

isolates a specific band-

width of light called Hydrogen Alpha. This allows
one to view the Sun’s Chromosphere. The image of
the sun will be a deep red across the entire disk. Be
aware that it can take time to ‘train’ one’s eye for
H-Alpha viewing. The more you use the PST


better your eye will get at discerning detail in the
Chromosphere. The sun is constantly changing and
will provide a new and dynamic view from day to
day and hour to hour. This is a list of general terms
for the features you will see.

Prominences – H-Alpha emissions features

projecting beyond the limb of the sun, consisting of
complex clouds or streamers of gas above or in the

Filaments – Prominences seen against the face of

the sun, appearing as long narrow dark streamers
or diffuse complex dark areas in H-Alpha light.
Filaments often mark areas of magnetic shearing

Active Region - A localized, transient volume of

the solar atmosphere in which plages, sunspots,
and flares may be observed. Active regions are the
result of enhanced magnetic fields and appear
darker than the surrounding areas with a roughly
circular shape.

Plage – patchy H-Alpha brightening on the solar

disk, usually found in or near active regions, which
can last for several days. Plage is irregular in shape
and variable in brightness, marking areas of nearly
vertical emerging or reconnecting magnetic field

Sunspots – Moderate to large spots usually consist

of a darker central region (umbra) and a lighter halo
consisting of many short fine fibrils (penumbra).

Flares - A sudden eruption of energy in the solar

atmosphere lasting minutes to hours, from which
radiation and particles are emitted.
