Now, your Lunt 80mm telescope is ready to unveil the wonders of the night sky.



  • 80mm Aperture: Featuring an 80mm aperture, this telescope provides a significant light-gathering capability. A larger aperture allows for better resolution and clarity, enabling observers to capture more detail in celestial objects.
  • 140x Maximum Magnification: With a maximum magnification of 140x, this telescope allows observers to zoom in for detailed views of celestial objects, providing versatility for various types of observations.
  • 560mm Focal Length: The telescope features a focal length of 560mm, contributing to its optical characteristics and determining the magnification capabilities.
  • f/7 Focal Ratio: The f/7 focal ratio indicates the speed of the telescope, with a lower f-number implying a faster optical system. This specification influences the telescope's ability to capture faint celestial objects and details with shorter exposure times.
  • FPL53 Doublet Lens: The telescope is equipped with a high-quality FPL53 Doublet Lens. This lens design, known for its exceptional color correction and image sharpness, ensures that the telescope delivers clear and crisp views of astronomical phenomena.
  • Versatile Day & Night Observations: The Lunt 80mm Universal Telescope is designed to excel in both daytime and nighttime observations. This versatility allows astronomers to explore a wide range of celestial objects, from the Sun's surface features during the day to deep-sky objects like stars and galaxies at night.
  • Precision-Aligned ED Refractor: The precision alignment of the Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) refractor is a testament to the telescope's commitment to optical accuracy.
  • Hydrogen Alpha Configuration with Doppler True Tuning: In its Hydrogen Alpha configuration, the telescope provides excellent solar observation capabilities with a <.65 Å bandpass. The Doppler True Tuning system, utilizing pressure tuning, ensures precise tuning for optimal views of the Sun's surface details, including prominences and sunspots.
  • Modular Design for Easy Conversion: The telescope boasts a modular design, facilitating easy conversion for different observational purposes. Transitioning from solar to nighttime observations is simplified by removing the hydrogen alpha module and replacing it with a compatible focuser, offering users a seamless transition between modes.
  • Sturdy Ring Set Assembly with Dovetail: The included ring set assembly, featuring a dovetail mount, provides a sturdy and secure attachment to mounts. This feature is crucial for stability during observations and ensures accurate tracking of celestial objects.
  • Red Dot Sun Finder Handle: For solar observations, the telescope includes a Red Dot Sun Finder handle. This specialized feature aids in aligning the telescope precisely with the Sun, simplifying the process of locating and observing solar phenomena.
  • Protective Hard Case with Custom Foam Insert: The telescope comes with a durable hard case featuring a custom foam insert. This protective case is designed to secure the telescope during transportation and storage, safeguarding it from potential damage.
