Polling your knowledge, what would be the next step in evolution as to up-grading from my PST to more resolution and detail in a Coronado instrument? Don't tell me go to the 90mm. dedicated scope $$$ thanks for your suggestions, John M

A couple options come to mind: One is to double-stack your PST. This will result in a significant improvement in visible detail.

A second option is Coronado's SolarMax 60 dedicated H-alpha scope. It will yield more detail, resolution and contrast than your stock PST, and costs less than the 90mm version.

Of the two--assuming you're interested in a dedicated scope--the former is the least costly and will provide lots of bang for the buck. The second Etalon screws right on the front of the PST, and tuning it is fairly easy to do.

The 60mm scope is more money than the second Etalon for your PST, but its performance as a stand-alone H-alpha scope is superb.
