Product Description

The Lunt LS60THa tilt-tuned solar telescope is a complete h-alpha solar telescope. The refractor-based system has a precision-aligned singlet chromatic lens with a 60 mm aperture. The front singlet lens reduces half the stray light of an achromat, fully eliminating the possibility of on-axis coma, astigmatism, de-centering aberrations, and provides, with the matched collimation lens set, a full spherical corrected flat-field solar telescope.

The focal length is 500 mm, providing a ~4.5 mm image through a 12 mm blocking filter. Fine adjustment is achieved with a 2″ Feathertouch focuser with 10:1 reduction. An internal etalon with Pressure-tune adjustment allows for a <0.8 Angstrom bandpass.

I got feedback from experienced folks in my astronomy club before purchasing. with regard to photography, they all said get the 12mm blocking filter. I followed their advice on that and have been happy with the quality and performance of the scope. Recommended. I haven't felt the need for the more expensive second tuner. (Posted on 10/28/2019)

Love this Ha scope. I have the double stack version. I mount it on my Ioptron MiniTower and it's good to go. I have had some awesome images thru this scope. I recently added an Optec focuser and it makes excellent imaging a snap. (Posted on 10/23/2019)
