Product description

A mere Daystar Solar Scout SS60-DS telescope. You will also need a power supply to use the Daystar SolarScout. For example, the lightweight iOptron SkyGuider Pro.

The Daystar Solar Scout SS60-DS is a great beginner's telescope for viewing and shooting the sun. At the wavelength of the hydrogen alpha, you can see a variety of different surface shapes from the sun! The chromosphere of the sun opens up a unique and ever-changing view of our near star. Observe sunspots and active areas near them. Perhaps managed to watch the sun safely just at the moment when a bright flare eruption occurs! At the edge of the sun, gas eruptions, or prominences, are sometimes in the form of spectacular arcs, feather-shaped, or short but wide, such as the hedgehog shape. Using Solar Scout is very easy.

Initially, the telescope needs time to preheat the built-in Quark module, which takes about 10-15 minutes. The Quark module is powered from a power source with a micro-USB cable. The indicator light on the Quark module changes from yellow to green when the telescope is ready for use. If the yellow light does not turn green, the observation site is too hot or cold. A red light indicates that there is not enough power available.

The adjustment knob on the Quark module can be used to change the view, making the surface more visible, or in another position, the gas discharges, or prominences, at the edge of the sun. Turning the control knob always requires a short wait of a couple of minutes.

The Daystar Solar Scout Quark module cannot be removed from the supplied telescope. Great for photography with a CMOS camera. For example, we recommend the ZWO 178MM mono camera or the ZWO174MM mono camera. In sun photography, you can easily come across Newton rings, which is why it’s worth taking flats in photography. This usually solves the problem.
