SAFETY FIRST: Observing the Sun without the proper protection may result in serious personal injury, including permanent eye damage and blindness, and/or damage to equipment. Never point an optic at the sun without an approved solar filter on the front of the optic. For direct solar viewing, viewing the sun through an optic, or when using cameras with an optical viewfinder, ensure your filter is ISO 12312-2 (also written as ISO 12312-2:2015) certified. Never use photographic neutral density filters for direct solar viewing, viewing the sun through an optic, or when using cameras with an optical viewfinder.

Lunt Solar Systems LS60THa overview

  • 1Description

Enjoy rarely-seen views of the Sun's surface and rim with the Lunt Solar Systems' 60mm f/8.3 Hydrogen-Alpha Single Etalon Refractor Solar Telescope. This dedicated solar scope features a 60mm objective lens , a 500mm focal length, and an internal etalon with a <0.75 Angstrom bandpass. The scope is offered here with a 6mm blocking filter in a star diagonal configuration. It fits in the Feather Touch rack-and-pinion focuser and accepts 1.25" eyepieces and accessories and should be used for visual observation only. Its rack-and-pinion Feather-Touch focuser features a dual-speed design with a 10:1 fine-focus for precision focusing. Rack-and-pinion focusers are generally better for handling heavier loads, such as larger imaging systems. This solar scope comes without a mount or tripod, but is outfitted with a mounting base that has a 1/4"-20 threads for attaching it to most tripods or compatible mounts. For safe transportation and storage, a foam-lined hard carrying case is included.
