Product Details

  • Lunt Solar Systems LS60THa/B600C Hydrogen-Alpha Telescope

    Now introducing the Lunt Solar Systems LS60THa H-Alpha Telescope! Good new for beginners, this a refractor-based system starts off with a 60mm precision aligned singlet lens with a focal length of 500mm. Inside this custom-made refractor, you'll find an internal etalon with tune adjustment which allows for a maximum of <0.75 Angstrom bandpass. You'll get a sharp, crisp ~4.5mm image through its 6mm blocking filter, revealing excellent details on both the solar surface, limb edge, flares and prominences. We're talking about a professional level quality solar telescope at an affordable price!

    But there's more than just a pretty view... You can achieve coarse focus adjustment with a slide tube, and then fine adjustments to focus are accomplished via the included dual-speed 2" Crayford style focuser with 10:1 reduction. Its clam shell mount is compatible with most tripods and mounting holes are all part of the Lunt Solar Telescope System.... Right down to the stylized white pearl paint with anodized black trim and included foam lined hard case!

    Lunt Solar Systems creates their line of h-alpha solar telescopes in Tuscon, Arizona. They have have put together a group of experienced solar enthusiasts who are looking forward to energizing the hobby with a continued commitment to advancing technologies, pride in quality, and the highest level of customer care. These are names you'll recognize, including Andrew Lunt with 20 years of optical design, Markus Ludes with his extensive knowledge of telescope design, Manny Serrano as a design engineer and Brian Stevens assembling, repairing and troubleshooting etalon systems. And newly designed etalon systems are what it's all about.... Some of their new products will range from an entry level 50mm etalon filter through to a 160mm Lunt Solar Telescope System using different components... One that's less thermally sensitive and far less prone to de-contacting.

    awesome

    Does not come with a finder, and you'll probably need a dovetail as well unless you have a photo tripod that will somehow support the weight of this. And of course the eyepiece. But otherwise the images are pretty awesome visually. If you're only doing visual, then the b600 is fine, imo. I also had to add a small extender to go into focus with my eyepiece, but technically you do not need an extender as you could pull the b600 out a little to reach focus.
