FeatherTouch focuser!

$7999 AUD
Place your order

LS152THa/PT/B1800/FT
Pressure Tuned!
FeatherTouch focuser!

$13,499 AUD
Place your order

The LS152THa is the largest solar telescope available from Lunt Solar. It provides the largest and highest resolution image size of any single etalon dedicated telescope. This 100% unobstructed system will perform to the highest level at both low and high magnifications. Utilising both advanced high-contrast coatings and the new Doppler True Pressure Tuning system, the observer will experience crisp, sharp and high magnification images.
This system performs excellently with high-end digital processors, too!

True Doppler Tuning allows for a shift towards and away from the observer, thereby adding a 3D-like viewing experience. Whilst it has minimal effect on prominences, due to their location on the edge of the disc, it does have an effect on filaments and active regions on the Sun's surface.

This system has an optional interchangeable CaK module, allowing for the research of multiple wave lengths through the same platform.
The LS152THa can be adapted to night-time viewing by fitting an optional special backing plate and focuser kit. Eyepiece not included.

An internal HD etalon with Pressure Tune adjustment allows
a maximum of <0.65 Angstrom bandpass @ 656nm.
Focal length is 900mm. Focal ratio is f/6.
 
Includes 18mm blocking filter diagonal, Lunt zoom eyepiece, mounting ring, Televue Sol Searcher Sun Finder, Lunt 12" dovetail, dust caps and
an aluminium finished hard case with custom foam lining.

Fitted with a 
FeatherTouch (FT) 10:1 microfocuser of 2.5" travel.

18mm blocking filter diagonal!

DSII/LS80THa Internal Double Stack Module

$2699 AUD 

Place your order

Lunt's new DSII system reduces the bandpass of all LS80THa telescopes to <0.5 Angstroms! The DSII eliminates the need for an external front mounted filter for double-stacking. In this system both
Etalons are internally installed in the telescope and both Etalons are equipped with the "Pressure Tuner" tuning system. The DSII module can easily be installed on LS80THa telescopes without having to return the telescope to the Lunt factory. This DSII module is designed for use with LS80THa telescopes only. The Sun's image is brighter with the DSII than with other double-stack systems. Therefore, prominences
can be observed more clearly and in better detail, compared to other double-stacked systems which greatly dim the Sun's image. 
 

DSII/LS100THa Internal Double Stack Module

$4999 AUD

Place your order

Double stacking provides a truly enhanced high definition view of the Sun's surface details. It reduces the bandpass of the system from <0.7 Angstroms to <0.5 Angstroms which really makes the Sun's surface "come alive". The LS100THa model can be internally double-stacked at any time. Your LS100THa doesn't need to be returned to the Lunt factory if it has the red anodised front cell fitted. If yours is an older model with an all-white tube (no red) then you will need to upgrade your scope before using the internal double-stack DSII/LS100THa. Contact us or Lunt.

SOLAR WHITE LIGHT HERSCHEL WEDGE, 1.25"

(LS1.25HW)

Price A$399
Place your order

The Lunt white light Herschel wedge package includes a Baader ND3 filter. The latest Herschel wedge package has the ND3 factory-installed! 
A polarizing filter is recommended. A "double filter" combination allows safe imaging or visual observing of the Sun. If you prefer, a continuum filter can be used instead of a polarising filter. The ND3 AND either the polarizing or continuum filter MUST be used in a "top mounted" configuration AFTER the Herschel wedge. "Top mounting" means the filters are mounted at the top
of the Herschel wedge. It's best to firstly screw the polarizing filter or continuum filter up into the bottom of your chosen eyepiece, then screw
the ND3 up into the polarizing or continuum filter. Next, slide your eyepiece down into the top of the Herschel wedge. The latest Herschel wedge package has the ND3 factory pre-installed! If you intend using a polarizing
filter then rotate the filter until you achieve a comfortable brightness level.

NEVER USE THE HERSCHEL WEDGE WITHOUT BOTH AN ND3 FILTER
AND A "TOP MOUNTED" POLARIZING OR CONTINUUM FILTER FITTED, OTHERWISE PERMANENT DAMAGE TO YOUR EYES MAY OCCUR!!

The LS1.25HW performs best with refractors up to 100mm (4") of front aperture. If your night-time telescope reaches focus with a standard star diagonal, it will reach focus with a Lunt solar white light Herschel wedge.

This is the required series of fitment...Telescope > focuser > Herschel
wedge > ND3 filter > polarizing or continuum filter > eyepiece or camera.

  
 The ND3 filter must be fitted AFTER the Herschel wedge's light path!
NEVER fit filters in front of the Herschel wedge as they will crack!
