It looks like the 90 mm really works nice.
Thanks for sharing.

It is most impressive.
I still use the PST as most of my equipment is geared tward DSO imaging.
A bigger solar scope would be nice but not in the budget any time soon with gas prices breaking 4 bucks a gallon here in Michigan.
It looks like it will be a long hard summer for everyone.

Your photographs are a work of art. The images you have in Philip Pugh's book "Observing the Sun with Coronado Telescopes" belong in an artistic display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art!
Last Christmas I purchased a Coronado PST. My heart still skips a beat when I view solar activity thru it. As you are aware we always want a larger scope and when I checked Astronomics website I was astonished to see the Solar Max 60 and 90mm selling at deep discount.
May I ask your advise on my next Coronado scope? I have a Meade LDX 75 equitorial mount which is quite stable and should handle the SolarMax 90mm. Is that a correct assumption?
Scanning the website I hear talk about a rust problem. Is it common? The warrenty is for five years and I wonder what the repair cost would be out of warrenty?
Are there any other bugs or flaws in the 60mm or 90mm that you are aware of?
My thoughts are to try photography of the sun. I have never been artistic, but when I see your images I am enthralled with the beauty you bring out from the sun. I am retired and have been a night astronomer for years. I would like to start viewing the sun as well and see if I can capture its beauty as you do.
Going from the PST to the 90mm is quite a jump, but how often does Meade drop the price by 50%.
If there is any advice or suggestion on my next purchase, I am all ears to your thoughts and ideas.
