Lunt Solar Systems LS60THAD/B12CP Hydrogen-Alpha Refractor Double Stack Telescope with Pressure Tuner

Now introducing the Lunt Solar Systems LS60THAD/B12CP H-Alpha Telescope! Good new for beginners, this a refractor-based system starts off with a 60 mm precision aligned singlet lens with a focal length of 500 mm. Inside this custom-made refractor, you'll find an internal etalon with pressure tuner adjustment which allows for a maximum of <0.75 Angstrom bandpass with a precision aligned 60 mm front mounted doublet and an internal etalon system with tune adjustment that allows a maximum of <0.55 Angstrom - a double stacked system! You'll get a sharp, crisp ~4.5 mm image through its 6 mm 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-inch 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.

And newly designed etalon systems are what it's all about.... Some of their new products will range from an entry level 50 mm etalon filter through to a 160 mm Lunt Solar Telescope System using different components... One that's less thermally sensitive and far less prone to de-contacting.
