Does Coronado produce other kinds of optics?

Coronado Optics

Coronado actually does not specialize in making telescopes. Coronado, as a company, is known primarily for producing ultra-narrowband filters that allow astronomers to observe the sun. According to Coronado, the sun is best viewed by isolating the Hydrogen-Alpha wavelength at 656.3nm and filtering out all other kinds of light. Coronado's filters help telescopes to isolate this one single wavelength. Once this wavelength is isolated, the sun can be safely viewed through a telescope, bringing out such details as solar flares, and the features of the sun's surface.
