For safe solar observation.
Alone or in groups.
An excellent instructional measuring instrument
The Solarscope projects (similar to the principal of the solar procection screen) an image of the sun of approx.115 mm diameter on a white screen. The projecting optics has an aperture of 40mm and an equivalent focal length of 13m. With the Solar Scope (Standard version) you can observe
- sun spots,
- solar flares,
- limb darkening of the sun,
- partial solar eclipses and
- transits of Mercury and Venus
The Solarscope is very simple to align, robust and easy to use.
Das Solarscope (Standard / Education) besteht aus folgenden Materialien:
- basis and upper rotary parts: color printed labeled cardboard,
- lens and mirror: glass,
- mechanical mounts: plastic (ABS) and aluminium
- image quality better than one lambda (wavefront)
- Measurements: approx. 60 x 45 x 38cm (Model Education), approx. 47 x 36 x 30cm (Standard)
- weight: approx. 1.3kg.
Only in the educational version (Education) of the Solarscope, the following measurements/experiments can be made:
- earth rotation speed
- day duration
- true local noon
- earth poles axis inclination
- sun rotation speed
- latitude of the observation spot
- earth orbit ellipticity
- astronomical unit (AU)
To allow these experiments, only the educational version (Education) is supplied with a measurement screen, a plumplin (small weight) and a workshop instruction manual. In addition the side of the Solarscope is printed with a large angular scale.
