LUNT LS60THa/B600C H-alpha Solar Telescope
Special telescope for the observation of the sun
Complete H-alpha solar telescope with 60mm aperture, <0.75 Angstrom bandwidth, B600 blocking-filter, and Crayford focuser.
The LS60THa/B600C is a complete telescope for observing the sun in H-alpha, with 60mm aperture (no central obstruction) and 500mm focal length. An internal Etalon allows provides <0.75 Angstrom bandwidth. The Etalon is installed safely inside the telescope-tube, and adjustable by a mechanical tilting-system. Fine adjustment is achieved with a Crayford style focuser with 10:1 reduction.
Blocking-filter is the B600. The B600 is good for visual solar observing. Also solar imaging is possible by cameras with small CCD chip. We recommend a LS60THa with B1200 blocking-filter by using cameras with middle or large sized CCD chips.
The star diagonal in which the blocking filter is installed, is equipped as standard for 1.25" eyepieces and with a T2 camera connection.
