4.0 out of 5 stars For those contemplating solar observation., 21 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Observing the Sun with Coronado(tm) Telescopes (Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy) (Paperback)
I have observed the sun using a home made Baader Solarfilm filter and wanted to find out more. The results of using a specialised solar telescope are clearly demonstrated by this book.

As the title says, the Coronado range of telescopes are dealt with and in particular the PST. Some other specialist filters are also included. Various accessories are reviewed for use, and this leads to a slightly repetitious feel as some of the same accessories are dealt with for each telescope in turn. I would have liked the final chapters dealing with the nature of the sun expanded somewhat and some diagrams to illustrate the various physical features to be included, after all, the sun is the single object being observed with these telescopes. The pictures of the sun taken through the various telescopes are fantastic and show what can be achieved.

Having said all that, I personally found the book a fascinating read. I keep picking it up to browse for a bit more information. I am now just waiting for an excuse to be able to buy my own Coranado PST.
