All Lunt LS80MT Modular Telescopes require a Lunt blocking filter for Day use.
Which blocking filter is right for you?
LS80MT Modular Telescope
The New Lunt LS80MT is a powerhouse modular telescope, taking one of Lunt Solar Systems most popular sized telescopes and making it even more functional! At 80mm Aperture, with a FPL53 Doublet Lens, the LS80MT is a precision aligned ED refractor that is made to impress whether you are chasing the Sun’s active regions or sifting through the stars of the milky way. In Hydrogen Alpha configuration single stack mode, the LS80MT provides excellent viewing prowess at <.7 angstroms bandpass with Lunt’s reknowned Doppler True Tuning (pressure tuned) system. But dont sleep on its capabilities simply because the Sun goes down!
SFPT– Internal Double Stack Module for LS80MT
Double stacking provides a truly enhanced, high definition view of the Sun’s surface details. Notably, it lowers the bandpass of the system from <0.7 Angstrom to <0.5 Angstrom, which really makes the surface “pop”! The Lunt LS80MT can be internally double-stacked with the SFPT Unit at the time of purchase or anytime thereafter. The LS80MT telescope will not need to be returned to the factory for double-stacking.
LS80MT Nighttime Telescope
Coming standard with FPL 53 Doublet Lens, the LS80MT transforms from a fully fledged Hydrogen Alpha Telescope into a night time or terrestrial telescope in only moments. Remove your Hydrogen Alpha module, or modules if you are double stacked, and replace with the backing plate and focuser (optional/available in packages) to start traveling between the stars at night or for terrestrial applications during the day. The Ultimate in transportability, the LS80MT is big enough to impress even the most seasoned astronomer, while maintaining a size appropriate to carry on a plane while traveling.
With Lunt Solar Systems new Modular Telescope line up, versatility is the name of the game; and the LS80MT is no slouch- able to be used with all of our popular wavelengths (Hydrogen Alpha, White Light, Calcium K), you will never have a shortage of viewing possibilities. And at 80mm, the LS80MT is the perfect size for less than perfect viewing during Hydrogen Alpha configuration, making it a popular and perfect choice for inner city applications.
True Doppler Tuning
Importantly, True Doppler Tuning allows for a shift into and away from the user, adding a 3-D like component to the viewing experience. To be sure, it has minimal effect on proms due to their location at the edge of the disk, but it does have an effect on filaments and likewise the active regions on the surface. Also while looking at a filament at the center of the Sun, the user has the ability to Doppler shift from the base of the filament to the tip. In this way following the filament through it’s structure toward you and away from you. Amazingly, this allowing for enhanced visual and imaging capability for the observer as well as a research tool for the avid hobbyist. In addition the pressure tuning system provides an order of magnitude more precision to the tuning of the desired features.
