Lunt 80mm Modular Telescope Starter Package - LS80MT

Presenting the Lunt 80mm Modular Telescope Starter Package, a complete astronomical powerhouse enhanced with essential accessories for a heightened stargazing experience.

With an 80mm aperture and FPL53 Doublet Lens, the LS80MT ensures impressive performance for observing the Sun's active regions and the Milky Way.

Expanding the telescope's versatility, this comprehensive package includes a set of essential accessories. 

These include the 2" Diagonal and Adapter for optimal viewing configurations, a 1.25″ 45 Degree Diagonal for comfortable observation angles, a Red Dot Handle and Mounting Ring Assembly for easy maneuvering, a 6-inch Dovetail for secure mounting, a Backing Plate & Focuser for seamless transitions, and the Lunt 19mm Eyepiece for enhanced clarity.

Additionally, the 2" to 1.25" Adapter provides flexibility in eyepiece compatibility, offering astronomers a well-rounded toolkit for diverse astronomical observations.

In Hydrogen Alpha single stack mode, the LS80MT delivers outstanding viewing with a <0.7angstroms bandpass, thanks to Lunt's Doppler True Tuning system.
