Track, record, and video daily Sun spots at home or the classroom with this solar iOptron Telescope.


New from iOptron - The iOptron Solar 60 computerized telescope system with a video eyepiece! Now your family or classroom can see sun spots right on a computer screen. 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 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.


What's more, the iOptron Solar 60 comes with the iOptron iE1300 Electronic Eyepiece. Now you can experience astro-video and astrophotography for yourself! The iOptron Electronic Eyepiece allows you to view real-time images from your iOptron Telescope on a computer screen. The iOptron iE Electronic Eyepiece transmits live video images of the Moon, Sun, planets and terrestrial objects through a USB cable to your computer. Images can be recorded through your iOptron Telescope for later playback or frame imaging.
