Product Details


  • The New Lunt 80 mm Universal Telescope is a powerhouse modular telescope, taking one of Lunt Solar Systems most popular sized telescopes and making it even more functional! At 80mm Aperture, with a FPL53 Doublet Lens, the 80 mm Universal Telescope is a precision aligned ED refractor that is made to impress whether you are chasing the Sun’s active regions or sifting through the stars of the milky way.

    In Hydrogen Alpha configuration single stack mode, the 80 mm Universal Telescope provides excellent viewing prowess at <.65 Å bandpass with Lunt’s renowned Doppler True Tuning (pressure tuned) system. But don’t sleep on its capabilities simply because the Sun goes down!

    And after sunset, let the stars and planets shine! Conversion from hydrogen alpha mode has never been easier: Remove the hydrogen alpha module (and attached pressure tuner) from your telescope optical tube assembly (OTA), and replace with the focuser of your choice.

    2″ Feather Touch Focuser

    The Starlight Feather Touch Focusers have been redesigned and is even better than the original! All running parts are now hardened stainless steel on hardened stainless steel. This greatly improves the smoothness, wear characteristics and its robustness. This new design will virtually not wear out and moves with even greater smoothness and precision than the original model. It is still an absolute must for CCD imaging and astro-photography, in addition to making visual use a joy.
