Track daily Sun spots at home or the classroom with this iOptron Telescope.


New from iOptron - The iOptron Solar 60 computerized telescope system! Now your family or classroom can see sun spots. The computerized iOptron Telescope locates and auto-tracks to keep the sun (or moon, planets, and other celestial objects) in view. With heavy solar activity predicted for many years, this is the ideal iOptron Telescope system to capture video or still photos (with optional video eyepiece camera) of the sun spots and their movements. Set it up at home or school and everyone can see the daily changes in the sun spots.


The iOptron Solar 60 comes complete with a threaded solar filter to switch to nightime viewing. Also included with this iOptron Telescope is a matching orange back pack for easy storage and travel.
