The Lunt Solar Systems LS60THa H-Alpha Telescope is a refractor-based system that starts off with a 60mm precision aligned singlet lens with a focal length of 500mm. Inside this custom-made refractor, you'll find an internal etalon with pressure tuner adjustment which allows for a maximum of <0.75 Angstrom bandpass. You'll get a sharp, crisp ~4.5mm image through its 6mm blocking filter, revealing excellent details on both the solar surface, limb edge, flares and prominences. We're talking about a professional level quality solar telescope at an affordable price!

But there's more than just a pretty view... You can achieve coarse focus adjustment with a slide tube, and then fine adjustments to focus are accomplished via the included dual-speed 2" Crayford style focuser with 10:1 reduction. Its clam shell mount is compatible with most tripods and mounting holes are all part of the Lunt Solar Telescope System.... Right down to the stylized white pearl paint with anodized black trim and included foam lined hard case!

- Quality built scope with solar views to match.
I am sorry I wasted so much time looking at the sun with a common white light solar filter. Now I can view the other 90% of the sun's beauty. How often do you have the WOW moment? Now it is every time with this Lunt 60. Not a plastic part on it. The lens cap is made from a solid chunk of heavy metal. We all know where that came from. How fitting. Lock onto the sun with the three focus adjustments then tickle out the surface details, with the pressure adjustment. Quick and easy. Purchased the lunt zoom also. Nice to zoom in and out without refocusing. The sun is ever changing and the most interesting star out there. Scope is worth every penny paid. Also need to send a thank you to the helpful people at OPT.
Right scope and extra parts- mount adapter and zoom. Thanks
