Lunt 80mm Modular Telescope Advanced Package - LS80MT
Meet the Lunt LS80MT Advanced Package, an impressive modular telescope with top-notch clarity.
This powerhouse, featuring an 80mm Aperture and FPL53 Doublet Lens, is a carefully aligned ED refractor designed for exploring the Sun's active areas or navigating the Milky Way.
In single-stack mode for Hydrogen Alpha, the LS80MT excels with a bandpass of less than 0.7angstroms, thanks to Lunt's Doppler True Tuning system.
The LS80MT comes with an SFPT – Internal Double Stack Module, offering a detailed view of the Sun's surface by lowering the bandpass from over 0.7 Angstrom to under 0.5 Angstrom.
You can double stack internally with the SFPT-unit anytime, eliminating the need for factory returns.
Quickly transform it into a nighttime or terrestrial telescope, featuring an FPL 53 Doublet Lens for versatility.
The LS80MT Advanced Package includes essential accessories, such as the 2" Diagonal and Adapter for versatile eyepiece options, a 1.25″ 45 Degree Diagonal for comfortable viewing angles, a Red Dot Handle and Mounting Ring Assembly for easy maneuvering, a 6-inch Dovetail for secure mounting, and a Backing Plate & Focuser for smooth transitions between observations.
A Lunt 19mm Eyepiece for clear and detailed views. Lunt White Light Solar Wedges and Polarize Filters for White Light Wedges, allowing astronomers to explore the Sun with enhanced contrast and detail.
For added flexibility in eyepiece compatibility, the package includes a 2" to 1.25" Adapter.
Easily switch from Hydrogen Alpha to the LS80MT by swapping the module with the backing plate and optional focuser.
Incorporating Lunt Solar Systems' Modular Telescope lineup, the LS80MT offers versatility with popular wavelengths (Hydrogen Alpha, White Light, Calcium K).
True Doppler Tuning adds a 3D aspect to the viewing experience, enhancing visual and imaging capabilities, especially for observing filaments and active solar regions.
