Interesting...

Looks like a 70mm stopped down to a 60mm - good marketing??

Misleading marketing....

As is, the scope is a 60mm f6.67 solar scope and nothing more....

Looks pretty good.

2 in 1 scope which is cool!

Always loved their designs.

Well, you can remove the front etalon and replace the BF at the back with a regular diagonal, but you are left with a 70mm Achro with no dew shield. I guess good enough for wide field low power viewing...

But still, when you advertise this scope as a solar scope, you should clearly indicate in large bold letters that it is a 60mm Solar scope...
