Hi there, I'm looking for a Solar scope mainly for imaging, and will be using it for viewing if it's possible, but the main goal is imaging.
my budget is around 2600 - 2800$
I looked to Daystar but the X4 barlow thingy makes it hard to get a full disc, so it might not be a good idea.
So far I'm between:
Coronado SolarMax III 70mm Double-Stacked 15mm Blocking (2699$)
LUNT 60MM DOPPLER TRUE TUNED DOUBLE-STACKED B1200CPT with Crayford Focuser (2695$)
I know that the SolarMax III is actually a 60mm not 70mm
that's why I'm comparing the two.
both have the same price, the coronado is a two speed focuser, while the LUNT is Crayford (not sure what does that mean exactly)(I also think that the double stacked here is a 50mm not 60mm)
so which choice is better for me? (note that they are not the only choices, if you think there's a better option, please share)
I'll be using the scope on a EQ6-R mount.
I'll be using an ASI174MM camera (I might get ASI290MM too)
