About the Lunt 60mm H-Alpha Solar Telescope - LS 60/PT Visual Package...

"For 22 years, Popular Science has honored the innovations that surprise and amaze us - those that make a positive impact on our world today and challenge our views of what''s possible in the future." said Mark Jannot, Editor-in-Chief of Popular Science. "The Best of What''s New Award is the magazine''s top honor, and the the 100 winners - chosen from among thousands of entrants - represent the highest level of achievement in their fields." - Popular Science Magazine Award for Product Innovations in 2009

 

Although it has long been known that altitude changes move the center bandpass of an air spaced filter, it wasn''t until June of this year that the reality of a Lunt Solar Telescope system like the Lunt 60mm H-Alpha Solar Telescope - LS 60/PT Visual Package that incorporates this technology was brought out into the mainstream. A simple system that simply increases and decreases the air pressure inside a sealed cavity.

 

This change in air pressure results in a change in refractive index which alters the interference of the light as it enters the cavity. Simplicity! This Lunt 60mm H-Alpha Solar Telescope - LS 60/PT Visual Package system basically does the same job as heat would do to a solid design, but instantly, without power, at the turn of a wrist. Thanks to Popular Science for recognizing Lunt Solar Telescope as a leader in its field!

 

The Lunt 60mm H-Alpha Solar Telescope - LS 60/PT Visual Package is perfect for the beginner through intermediate range. As the Sun enters Solar Maximum over the next few years, the excitement of viewing our Star through a dedicated Lunt Solar Telescope is sure to provide many many hours of visual enjoyment and educational insights.

 

The basic Lunt 60mm H-Alpha Solar Telescope - LS 60/PT Visual Package is fully upgrade-able at anytime without ever needing to go back to the factory. As the Sun becomes more increasingly more active, you will appreciate that the Lunt Solar Telescope can grow right along with it.

 

The Lunt 60mm H-Alpha Solar Telescope - LS 60/PT Visual Package provides the basic Lunt Solar Telescope essentials perfect for a first time introduction to Daytime Solar Observing, while also including the newest technology for fine tuning, allowing basic research of the Sun''s disk and some surface details.

 

Don''t forget... We also carry many fine Lunt Solar Telescope Accessories, such as Lunt H-Alpha Solar Filters, Lunt Calcium K Solar Filters, Lunt Solar Eyepieces, and even a Lunt Solar Imager!
