Review by:
This scope works as advertised and provides a cheap, safe way to look at the sun. The filter gives a greyscale image and you won’t see the detail you get with even the smallest Coronado, but at oneseventh the price it’s much more affordable. Plus you get a lightweight aa mount and tripod and a backpack to carry it all. (Posted on 7/22/2019)
