60mm Solar Telescope

LS60T_PT1

General Features:

The Lunt 60mm Solar Telescope provides the essential package that is perfect for a first time introduction to solar observing, while also offering the newest technology for fine tuning (Doppler True Tuning), allowing research of the Sun’s disk and every changing surface details. This instrument is highly adaptable for both visual and imaging use.

The basic configuration of the 60mm Solar Telescope is as follows:

  • 60mm Solar Telescope Optical Tube Assembly
  • Doppler True Pressure Tuning
  • 6mm Diagonal Blocking Filter
  • Crayford Style Focuser with 10:1 Fine Adjust
  • Integrated Clam Shell with 1/4-20 Mounting Holes and Sol-Searcher Attachment
  • Shipped in Custom Foam and Standard Hard Case

Additional Upgrades and Accessories are available at additional cost.

The price shown for an upgrade is the value of that upgrade over the base product and not the price of the upgrade product if purchased separately.

The excitement of viewing our Star through a dedicated solar telescope is sure to provide many many hours of visual enjoyment and educational insights. This package is fully upgradeable at any time without ever having to go back to the factory. As the Sun becomes increasingly more active, you will appreciate that the instrument can grow right along with it.

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 through 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.
