Lunt Engineering 80mm ED Doublet OTA
This Lunt Engineering 80mm f/7 ED Doublet OTA is an excellent telescope for either traditional nighttime viewing of the solar system or for viewing the sun with a solar filter. Fully multi-coated eyepiece lenses for reduction of unnecessary light being reflected back by the lens. Includes a 10:1 Crayford style focuser, making focus adjustments much easier, and a 2" to 1.25" adapter for better deep sky imaging.

- Questions & Answers
Product QuestionsThe description says that this can be used for white light observation. Does that mean solar viewing, and if so, what other items do you need, as I can't find an 80mm EtalonI want to use this OTA on a iOptron Cube Pro mounted on a Vixen Porta mount tripod. Will this OTA be a good match for that mount and do you sell the Vixen dovetail plate I would need to mount it?Question by: Marc McDonald on Feb 16, 2017 7:34:00 AMYes, this scope would be a good match for that mount. We carry V series dovetail plates by Lunt, Orion, Celestron, Vixen, ADM, and Losmandy, so I'm sure you can find a plate to work for you. Please let us know if you have any questions.Answer by: Chris Hendren (Admin) on Feb 17, 2017 4:03:00 PMIs the Vixen dovetail that is in the photo included? Also, what kind of finders will attach to the scope? Thanks, MartinQuestion by: Martin on Apr 29, 2014 9:00:59 AMAccording to Lunt Engineering, the dovetail is not included but any Lunt or ADM brand Vixen dovetail will work. Also, the clamshell has recesses just like the TeleVue clamshells. So any finder bracket or red dot finder from TeleVue or StellarVue that is designed to fit a TeleVue clamshell will attach.Answer by: Chris (Admin) on Apr 29, 2014 9:44:07 AMQuestion by: Robny on Aug 7, 2014 8:30:13 AM
