The iOptron Solar 60 is a computerized telescope system. Now your family or classroom can see sun spots right on a computer screen. The computerized telescope locates and auto-tracks to keep the sun (or moon, planets and other celestial objects) in view. With heavy solar activity predicted for 2012 - this is the ideal 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 Solar 60 comes complete with a threaded solar filter to switch to nighttime viewing. Also included is a matching orange backpack for easy storage and travel.
