Coronado PST at observatory

Roshaan Bukhari with Akbar Sahib

Today Akbar Sahib brought his newly purchased Coronado PST Hydrogen Alpha Solar Telescope to the observatory and Roshaan and i was happy to see the details this "small" telescope was showing us.

Its a very light weight telescope but the optics are truly amazing. Sun was very sharp in the view and the typical red halpha color is always so pleasing for me.

I also tried negler 9mm eyepiece and loved the solar details. Roshaan did what he does best, when he took images from his mobile camera. I still have to see those images.

Akbar Sahib came all the way from Rawalpindi and before he left, he told me that he wants me to keep his scope for a sometime so i can further explore its capabilities. Now that is generous! 

First thing i will be doing is to attach a ccd camera and aqcuire some AVIs. Let's see what it can show us in images!
