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.

    Lunt Solar Systems 2″ Crayford Dual Speed Focuser

    Lunt Solar's nicely machined 2″ dual speed 10:1 Crayford-style focuser, designed and made in house at Lunt’s machine shop, is now available for all Lunt Solar Universal Day and Night Telescopes and has course and fine focus adjustments with its smooth action focusing knobs.

    With a travel distance of 52mm, Lunt Solar designed this Crayford-Style 10:1 focuser for a variety of uses and applications alongside their Universal Telescope. Whether you are shooting night time photography, or simply spending a day in the Sun, the New Lunt Crayford Focuser is sure to delight and keep you steady!
