The Lunt LS50 is a very compact, complete telescope for observing the sun in H-alpha light. The LS50THa solar telescope offers 50 mm free aperture, 350 mm focal length, and provides a bandwidth of <0.75 Angstrom. The telescope is fitted as standard with the air-pressure tuning system "Pressure-Tuner", with the Etalon safely installed inside the telescope. Prominences and surface detail can quickly be viewed spontaneously. This very portable system is an ideal travel companion for wherever you go. A B600 blocking filter is installed inside the star diagonal. The B600 offers a larger field of view than the smaller B400 and is very good for visual solar observing and use with large chip cameras. We feel that the B600 is alround better value than the slightly cheaper B400 for this reason.

Focusing is achieved by a non-rotating Helical focuser. Please note that this telescope has a small back-focus, therefore solar-imaging is difficult with some types of camera. The LS50THa is really designed for visual solar observing. However use of a Barlow lens will solve this. We recommend the APM 2.7x Photo Visual Barlow.

Double-stacking with a bandwidth of only <0.5 Angstrom is possible by using the additional available LS50C filter. This filter threads directly onto the LS50THa telescope. Double-stacking will provide much more contrast, and more Chromosphere detail on the sun will become visible.

To mount the telescope you will require either the LS100 or LS150 dovetails. We recommend the longer version as this offers the chance of better balance.
