Description

All Lunt LS60tha DS solar telescopes need a blocking filter.

Which blocking filter is right for you?

B600 –   Visual use.
B1200 – You want a wider field of view and/or plan to do some imaging with a standard camera.

Images were taken through a Lunt LS60THa DS solar  telescope.

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.
