About the Lunt 80mm H-Alpha Solar Telescope - BF1800, Pressure Tuner & 2" Crayford Focuser...

Now introducing the Lunt Solar Systems LS80/Ha H-Alpha Telescope! The perfect telescope for the intermediate solar observer. Want something more than your current 40mm set up but don'''t want to full tilt on your budget? This is the Lunt Solar Telescope series for you!


You can achieve coarse focus adjustment with a slide tube, and then fine adjustments to focus the Lunt Solar Telescope are accomplished via the included dual-speed Crayford focuser with 10:1 reduction. Its clam shell mount is compatible with most tripods and mounting holes are all part of the Lunt Solar Systems LS80/Ha H-Alpha Telescope System.... Right down to the stylized white pearl paint with anodized black trim and included foam lined hard case!


The Lunt Solar Systems LS80/Ha H-Alpha Telescope is a precision aligned ED refractor with a fully un-obstructed 80mm optical aperture. This Lunt Solar Telescope package provides a significant step up into the Intermediary category of Daytime Solar Observing, Maintaining the most advanced technology of Lunt Solar Telescope Doppler True Tuning for fine adjustment of the center wavelength, allowing research of the Sun''s disk and surface details at increased image scale. Prominences, flares, super granulation, filaments, and active regions will be observed.


The Lunt Solar Systems LS80/Ha H-Alpha Telescope package is fully upgradeable with several options including the NEW evolutionary Dual Internal Stack Etalon System (DSII). The Lunt Solar Telescope DSII eliminates the need for an external double stack etalon reducing cost and eliminating obstructions. The Lunt Solar Telescope system is 100% un-obstructed. The band pass is reduced to


True Doppler Tuning onboard the Lunt Solar Systems LS80/Ha H-Alpha Telescope allows for a shift into and away from the user. Adding a 3D like component to the viewing experience. While it has minimal effect on proms due to their being at the edge of the disk, it does have an effect on filaments and active regions on the surface. While looking at a filament at the center of the Sun the Lunt Solar Telescope user has the ability to Doppler shift from the base of the filament to the tip, following the filament thru it''s structure toward you and away from you. Allowing for enhanced visual and imaging capability for the observer as well as a research tool for the avid hobbyist. The pressure tuning Lunt Solar Telescope system provides an order of magnitude more precision to the tuning of the desired features.


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!
