Lunt 70mm MT Doublet Refractor Telescope - LS70mm
Introducing the Lunt 70mm MT Doublet Refractor Telescope - an exceptional addition to our lineup that offers World Class optics in a compact design.
This refractor, serving as the optical tube assembly (OTA) behind the esteemed Lunt 60MT Telescope, is now available for purchase, catering to astronomy enthusiasts seeking top-notch performance without the hydrogen alpha module.
Crafted as a Doublet ED APO Refractor, the 70mm Refractor features a stellar FPL51 Objective Lens, ensuring outstanding optics quality.
Its compact size makes it one of our most portable telescopes, perfect for avid stargazers who prefer on-the-go night viewing.
Equipped with a Dual Speed 10:1 Rack and Pinion Focuser, the Lunt 70mm MT Refractor simplifies the focusing process.
Additionally, the included clam shell facilitates easy mounting for added convenience during setup.
This versatile refractor isn't limited to nighttime observations. With the option to integrate the Lunt CaK Module or White Light Wedge, users can easily transition to day-time solar observation.
The robust Dual Speed Focuser allows seamless installation of these accessories for precise solar imaging.
Whether you're exploring the sun's features during the day or drifting through the celestial wonders at night with your favorite star diagonal, the Lunt 70mm MT Refractor delivers a remarkable viewing experience.
Weighing just over 5lbs, this refractor is lightweight and ergonomically designed, providing comfort during extended use. Moreover, for those drawn to the Hydrogen-Alpha wavelength, the Lunt 70mm MT Refractor is 100% upgradeable to its standard form.
Converting it into a Hydrogen Alpha Telescope is a breeze—all it takes is the addition of a Lunt Blocking Filter and the appropriate Hydrogen Alpha Module, and you'll once again have the power to observe the sun in all its glory.
To ensure the safety and portability of your investment, the Lunt 70mm Refractor comes complete with a hard aluminum case and custom foam.
This thoughtful packaging is designed to accommodate your Hydrogen Alpha module and any additional accessories you may need for future astronomical endeavors, making it a comprehensive and enduring solution for your observation needs.
- 70mm Aperture: The telescope is equipped with a substantial 70mm aperture, allowing for the capture of a significant amount of light. This feature enhances the telescope's ability to provide clear, detailed views of celestial objects.
Versatility for Solar Viewing: The LS70mm MT Refractor can be used for solar viewing by easily integrating the Lunt CaK Module or White Light Wedge. This flexibility allows observers to explore the sun's features during the daytime.
Upgradeability to Hydrogen Alpha Telescope: The telescope is 100% upgradeable to its standard form, allowing users to convert it into a Hydrogen Alpha Telescope. This upgrade involves pairing it with a Lunt Blocking Filter and the appropriate Hydrogen Alpha Module for solar observations.
- 420mm Focal Length: With a focal length of 420mm, the telescope strikes a balance between providing a wide field of view and enabling higher magnification. This versatility makes it suitable for various astronomical observations, from deep-sky objects to lunar and planetary details.
- Focal Ratio F/7: Operating at a focal ratio of F/7, the telescope achieves a moderate focal speed. This characteristic makes it adaptable for both wide-field observations and more detailed, high-magnification views, catering to the preferences of different astronomers.
- OTA for the LS60MT: This telescope ensures seamless integration with the LS60MT system. Allows users to leverage the exceptional optics of the Lunt 70mm MT without the need for the hydrogen alpha module, providing versatility in observational choices.
- Doublet ED APO Refractor: The telescope employs a Doublet ED APO (Extra-low Dispersion Apochromatic) refractor design. This advanced optical arrangement features a double lens element that minimizes chromatic aberration, resulting in high-contrast images with accurate color reproduction.
- Dual Speed Rack & Pinion Focuser: Equipped with a Dual Speed 10:1 Rack and Pinion Focuser, the telescope offers precise control over the focusing process. The dual-speed mechanism allows for both rapid adjustments and fine-tuned focusing, accommodating the diverse requirements of astronomers during observations.
- Fully Multi-Coated Lens: The optics are fully multi-coated, enhancing light transmission and minimizing reflections. This ensures optimal image brightness, contrast, and color fidelity, contributing to the overall optical excellence of the Lunt 70mm MT Refractor.
- Aluminum Construction: The telescope may be constructed with lightweight yet durable aluminum materials, contributing to its overall portability while ensuring structural integrity.
