Acuter Solarus-80 80mm White Light Safe Solar Telescope with Mount and Tripod

The exiting Acuter Solarus-80 is an 80mm solar telescope with a safe, permanently-mounted white light solar filter of glass construction. which is useful for  many different aspects of white light solar observing, including  the observation of sunspots, solar eclipses, solar surface details & the transit of inner planets across the Sun. 

Features a built-in rotating filter wheel, complete with pre-installed filters to allow the Sun to be viewed in different colours. Supplied with a universal smartphone camera adaptor to take photos using your smartphone, to keep a photographic record of your observations.

The Acuter Solarus-80 conforms to and meets the transmission requirements of ISO 12312-2:2015 (Filters for the direct observation of the Sun). Always use in accordance with the instructions.

The outfit includes a technologically innovative Auto-Tracking Solar Go-To/Auto-Tracking Mount mount. The clever mount is extremely user-friendly and provides a safe experience for automatically locating and observing the sun with your telescope. Just roughly level the tripod and point the  solar telescope anywhere to the left of the sun and let the Solar Alignment Technology automatically do the rest!!  At the single push of a button, the telescope will be auto-levelled and the mount via GPS data fixing will calculate the altitude of the sun based on the time and location. The telescope will then be pointed to the correct altitude and the mount will slew clockwise hunting for the Sun. The Solar Sensor will detect the sun and lock onto it, and will silently track and keep it within the eyepiece's field of view indefinitely. 

The Acuter Solarus-80 Solar Telescope & Auto-Tracking Solar Mount Outfit can be used by educational establishments, beginners and experienced observers alike.
