Choose your blocking filter carefully for your telescope's focal length. If you were to use a larger blocking filter than is necessary to achieve a full disk image on your telescope system, the result may show image "ghosts" at the edge of the field of view! For best performance, be sure to pair your Lunt Solar Systems h-Alpha filter with the proper sized Lunt blocking filter. Because Lunt Solar Systems blocking filters contain a unique filter system. Lunt will only warranty the safety and/or performance of their systems when a Lunt blocking filter is paired with a Lunt Solar Systems Etalon system.

I have a Lunt Ls60T H-alpha with B600. I wanted to know which blocking filter can be fitted to improve performance? Note I take pictures. Thanks ValerioQuestion by: Valerio on Feb 10, 2016 12:51:00 PMUsing one of the larger blocking-filters will help illuminate a larger sensor. A good general rule-of-thumb is that you want the blocking-filter's diameter to be equal to or greater than the diagonal measurement of your sensor. So sensors smaller than 1/2" will due well with the B1200, and larger sensors will find a better fit with the B1800.Answer by: Eric Blackhurst (Admin) on Feb 12, 2016 5:26:00 PM
