Lunt 80mm H-alpha Solar Telescope - LS80THa
H-alpha Solar Telescope with 80mm aperture and <0.7 Angstrom bandwidth. With new air-pressure tuning system, zoom eyepiece, and Sol-Searcher. Will be delivered without Blocking Filter!
The LS80THa is a precision aligned ED refractor with a fully un-obstructed 80mm optical aperture and 560mm focal length. An internal etalon with new air-pressure tuning adjustment allows for a <0.7 Angstrom bandwidth. This "Pressure Tuner" system allows a better Etalon adjustment than other systems. The ?Pressure Tuner? system adapted the Etalon to varying altitudes and atmospheric pressures for always optimal performance. Fine adjustment is achieved with a Crayford style focuser with 10:1 reduction.
WARNING: This telescope will be delivered without Blocking Filter! You need a optional LUNT Blocking Filter for observing or imaging the sun. You can use all 2" LUNT Blocking filter, only the B600 is to small for this telescope.

The telescope is upgradeable with the new DSII double-stack system. The optional DSII is a internal double stack module with "Pressure Tuner", that provides a bandwidth <0.5 Angstrom. In addition to the "Pressure Tuner" has the DSII module the advantage that there are no more Energy-Rejection-Filter installed, unlike front-mounted double-stack filters. The ERF are allready in the telescope. Therefore the sun's image is brighter and prominences can be better observed than with conventional double-stack systems.
