The Sun is our Star!

.......and as you would expect, our Star is hot, bright, dynamic, and sometimes quite violent.

At 93 million miles away, we are ideally placed at a point where the Sun provides just enough warmth and energy essential to our living planet, Earth.

At only 93 million miles, the Sun is close enough for us to view its surface through a fairly inexpensive specialized scope from the comfort and relative safety (sunscreen, please) of our backyards on a clear and sunny day.

What! Astronomy during the day? Lunt Solar wants to show you how.

Prominences:
These look like eruptions from the edge of the Solar disk. Prominences can appear as small spiky-looking details, or large cloud-like detail with fine feather-like features. They are, in fact, ionized Hydrogen-alpha emissions being projected from the limb.

Prominences are anchored to the Sun's surface in the Mesosphere, and extend outward into the Sun's Troposphere. They typically measure many earth diameters.

Filaments:
Filaments are string-like features on the surface of the Sun. At high resolution they take on a 3D effect due to the cooler aspect of the suspended filament contrasted against the bright, hotter Sun.

Filaments are actually prominences being viewed against the surface.

Spicules
A Spicule is a dynamic jet of gas about 500km long. They move outward at about 20km/second through the Chromosphere.

Father Angelo Secchi of the Vatican Observatory discovered them in 1877.

The Chromosphere is entirely composed of Spicules. These features can be seen as "fur" around the edge of the disk.


There's definitely stuff to look at :)

A Pressure Tuned LS60THa…

Want to turn your current tilt-tuned LS60THa into a pressure tuned (PT) model? We can do that! Your first step is to contact Lunt Solar Systems to make arrangements for the retrofit. You will then ship your telescope to us (you pay for shipping) and we will install the etalon in a new pressure tuning chamber. This process usually takes two to four weeks, but it is always a good idea to check with us regarding time-frame.

Pressure-Tune Retrofit Pricing:

Product Number: PTRF
Price: $495.00

To make a purchase, contact Lunt Solar Systems. Prices are shown in US dollars and are subject to change without notice.

Typically an adapter plate will be required to attach a Lunt Solar Filter to the front of a customer supplied telescope. These adapters are in stock for the more common user scopes, but can be custom made to your specific requirement.

No adapter is needed to add a LS60/DS module to a LS60FHa.

The LS60FHa adapter plates are matched for the listed telescopes and for the LS60FHa Solar-Filters.

The Plates are listed in alphabetical order by Telescope manufacturer…

To make a purchase, contact us directly or buy from a dealer. Prices are shown in US dollars and are subject to change without notice.

The sun has slowly been starting to kick up once again and imagers across the globe have been capturing amazing shots!

Peter Desypris of Greece shot these awesome up close images using his LS60THa Double Stack.

Please keep sending in your images and we will post them here on our blog!

The addition of a secondary front-mounted interference filter and the upgrade of the rear trimming filter  transforms the Lunt LS60THa  into a superb visually enhanced instrument with the ability to also image the Sun utilizing basic camera equipment.

Adding the front filter provides a view of the Sun in virtual 3D. An active ball of churning boiling gasses that spew from the surface in what can be violent eruptions. Cause and effect can be viewed and imaged in real time.

An upgrade to the visual system, which comes standard with the pressure tuning system, puts a research grade instrument into the hands of the observer and the imager.

True Doppler Tuning (Pressure Tuning) allows for a shift into and away from the user, adding a 3D like component to the viewing experience. While it has minimal effect on proms due to their being at the edge of the disk, it does have an effect on filaments and active regions on the surface.  While looking at a filament at the center of the Sun the user has the ability to Doppler shift from the base of the filament to the tip, following the filament thru it’s structure toward you and away from you, allowing for enhanced visual and imaging capability for the observer as well as a research tool for the avid hobbyist.  The pressure tuning system provides an order of magnitude more precision to the tuning of the desired features.

Probably the only Solar Telescope you will ever need.

Package Features…

  • Ultra-Narrow Band Hydrogen-alpha (656.28nm) Dedicated System.
  • A 60mm refractor based system with additional 50mm aperture secondary removable filter.

Perfect for Educational Facilities and Beginner thru Advanced Users

The LS60THa is a complete Solar Telescope. The refractor based system has a precision aligned singlet chromatical lens with a 60mm aperture. The front singlet lens reduces half the stray light of an achromat , fully eliminating the possibility of on-axis coma, astigmatism, de-centering aberrations, and provides, with the matched collimation lens set, a full spherical corrected flat-field Solar Telescope. The focal length is 500mm providing a ~4.5 mm image thru a 6mm blocking filter. Fine adjustment is achieved with a Crayford style focuser or feather touch focuser with 10:1 reduction standard. An internal etalon with tune adjustment allows for a <0.8 Angstrom bandpass.

LS60THa Specifications: (single stacked)

  • Optical Aperture: 60mm
  • Etalon: Internal <0.75 Angstrom
  • Tuning: Tilt
  • Focal Length: 500mm
  • F Ratio: 8.3
  • Focuser: 2″ Crayford with 10:1 fine adjustment (standard) or 2″ Feather Touch with 10:1 (upgrade)
  • Mounting: Integrated clamshell style with 1/4-20 tapped base
  • Storage: Aluminum finished hard case with fitted foam
  • Weight: 6 lb.
