Anyone here ever consider or have modified their FS60C to be a H-Alpha solar scope. If so, I'd love the details.

Mortal as I am, I know that I am born for a day. But when I follow at my pleasure the serried multitude of the stars in their circular course, my feet no longer touch the earth.

Louis, I've used an FS-60C with the Coronado SM40 for years now. It's a wonderful setup, light weight with great image quality. Coronado sells the adapters as well as the filters, or if you're on a budget, they show up on Astromart classifieds from time to time. Try it, it's pretty much "plug and play".
