The LUNT Solar LS60MT is the smallest and most portable of the new line of modular telescopes. You can enjoy this new versatile scope in all our available wavelengths, for a true grab and go scope that will deliver excellent views in all its configurations. For Hydrogen-Alpha, the 60mm aperture will allow the viewer to gaze at the sun with an unobstructed clarity that is unparalleled in the industry. Explore the intricacies and features present on the sun with amazing detail utilizing our doppler true tuning pressure system; this will allow the viewer to change their view of the sun with the finest of adjustments, by simply adjusting the pressure within the system. Watch as the features virtually protrude from the sun and see our closest star as you never have before, in all its splendor.
LS60MT Nighttime Telescope
A truly portable powerhouse telescope, the New Lunt Solar Systems LS60MT is certainly the choice for you. Easily configurable, the 60MT will provide the excellent Hydrogen Alpha Viewing Capabilities that Lunt Solar Systems is known for worldwide, while giving you the option of continuing your observation with White Light, Calcium K, Terrestrial, and Night Time viewing at a 70mm aperture! Explore the majesty of the Sun’s prominences, Filaments, and other surface phenomena during the day, and when the sun finally sets, switch to wandering through our Galaxy at night with minimal effort. The 60MT has been designed with ease in mind, ensuring your transition from daytime to nighttime viewing in mere minutes. Equipped with an ED Doublet Lens, and an extremely capable 2″ Crayford Focuser, the LS60MT is sure to delight in any configuration! Whether Hydrogen-Alpha, White Light, Calcium K, or night time and terrestrial viewing, the 60MT can do it all!
The 60MT in its base configuration offers the options of hydrogen-alpha and nighttime viewing with minimal accessories needed. The 60MT Starter Package will deliver superb Hydrogen Alpha viewing as expected from a Lunt Telescope and provides you with all the accessories needed to switch between day and night configuration as you see fit. With the Starter Package including erecting star diagonal, focuser adapter (necessary to utilize night/terrestrial star diagonal), dovetail, and eyepiece along with the base telescope, you are sure to spend your days enjoying the cosmos! **Mount and Tripod not included**
True Doppler Tuning
Importantly, True Doppler Tuning allows for a shift into and away from the user, adding a 3-D like component to the viewing experience. To be sure, it has minimal effect on proms due to their location at the edge of the disk, but it does have an effect on filaments and likewise the active regions on the surface. Also while looking at a filament at the center of the Sun, the user has the ability to Doppler shift from the base of the filament to the tip. In this way following the filament through its structure toward you and away from you. Amazingly, this allowing for enhanced visual and imaging capability for the observer as well as a research tool for the avid hobbyist. In addition, the pressure tuning system provides an order of magnitude more precision to the tuning of the desired features.
