Hire the club’s solar scope, a Coronado PST (Personal Solar Telescope).

Available for club financial members only. The scope can be used on any normal camera tripod that you have or can be used with a club’s telescope if arranged for. A camera/Losmandy bar is also available and hence can be attached direct to any compatible GOTO mount that you may have.

The telescope comes with a standard 1.25” 10mm Plossol lens and necessary instructions. In order to hire the telescope, the member will be required to confirm that they are familiar with solar scopes or that they have or will read the associated instructions and that they are aware of the dangers of looking at the sun.

As it has a standard 1.25” lens opening a suitably sized camera could be attached but I haven’t tried this out yet.

A refundable deposit of $100 is required which will be refunded on return of the PST in good working order.

The Solar scope will be made available in Sydney for pickup by the member.
