      Lunt 80mm MT Doublet Refractor Telescope OTA

      Amazing capabilities with this scope.

      I decided to splurge a little and buy this made in the USA telescope. I've taken it out to a local gathering of Skygazers. There was one other Lunt 80 MT there, the owner was very kind to this night sky Newbie. Thanks Jerry for sharing your wizdom :-)

      Very serious Telescope!

      This is the Telescope if you wish to view the activity of the Sun.
