The DayStar Solar Scout 60DS is a high quality achromatic doublet refractor specifically designed for the Hydrogen-alpha wavelength. It contains a Quark filter which offers performance comparable to doublestacked solar telescopes with similar aperture from other manufacturers, but at a far lower cost.

Unlike most 'entry-level' solar telescopes which have a bandpass of around 0.7Å, the Solar Scout 60DS has an approximate bandpass of 0.5Å, resulting in greater detail of surface structures and filaments. The Solar Scout features a 12mm blocking filter with 16mm of clear etalon aperture, significantly more than competing offerings.
