Now introducing the Lunt Solar Systems LS60THa H-Alpha Telescope! Good new for beginners, this a refractor-based system starts off with a 60mm precision aligned singlet lens with a focal length of 500mm. Inside this custom-made refractor, you'll find an internal etalon with pressure tuner adjustment which allows for a maximum of <0.75 Angstrom band pass. You'll get a sharp, crisp ~4.5mm image through its 6mm blocking filter, revealing excellent details on the solar surface, limb edge, flares and prominences. We're talking about a professional level quality solar telescope at an affordable price!
But there's more than just a pretty view... You can achieve coarse focus adjustment with a slide tube, and then fine adjustments to focus are accomplished via the included dual-speed and 2" Feather touch Focuser with 1.5" travel and 10:1 reduction. Its clam shell mount is compatible with most tripods and mounting holes are all part of the Lunt Solar Telescope System....
