Lunt 80mm Modular Telescope Observer Package - LS80MT
Presenting the Lunt 80mm Modular Telescope Observer Package, a robust astronomical system elevated by essential accessories for an enriched stargazing venture.
With an 80mm aperture and FPL53 Doublet Lens, the LS80MT delivers remarkable performance, capturing the Sun's active regions and the Milky Way with precision.
In Hydrogen Alpha single stack mode, the LS80MT provides exceptional viewing with a <0.7angstroms bandpass, courtesy of Lunt's Doppler True Tuning system.
The comprehensive package includes vital accessories such as the 2" Diagonal and Adapter for optimal configurations, a 1.25″ 45 Degree Diagonal for comfortable angles, a Red Dot Handle and Mounting Ring Assembly for maneuverability, a 6-inch Dovetail for secure mounting, a Backing Plate & Focuser for smooth transitions, Lunt White Light Solar Wedges, Polarize Filters for White Light Wedges, and the Lunt 19mm Eyepiece for enhanced clarity.
Moreover, the 2" to 1.25" Adapter adds eyepiece compatibility, providing astronomers with a versatile toolkit for varied observations.
Internally double-stackable with the SFPT unit, the LS80MT reduces bandpass to <0.5 Angstrom for detailed solar surface observations.
The nighttime telescope seamlessly transitions from solar to celestial views, featuring an FPL 53 Doublet Lens.
True Doppler Tuning enhances the viewing experience, allowing dynamic shifts for a 3-Dimensional aspect, impactful in observing filaments and active solar regions.
The pressure tuning system ensures precision in fine-tuning desired features.
In Lunt Solar Systems' innovative Modular Telescope lineup, the LS80MT's 80mm aperture and compatibility with popular wavelengths make it an ideal choice for diverse viewing possibilities.
