    Lunt LS60THa/B1200C 60mm H-alpha Telescope

    Still for Sale
  2. SOLD Going to sell my Lunt LS60THa/B1200C 60mm H-alpha Telescope and go for a Quark and SD 80 set up so I can use the scope for wide view astro in the summer. I have only just bought this from FLO so somebody is going to get a bargain. I will included a Tel Vue SOL Searcher It comes in its own fitted case and I have all the original packaging so I would be happy to post it The Lunt LS60THa is a complete Solar Telescope with a 60mm aperture. The front singlet lens reduces half the stray light of an achromat, fully eliminating the possibility of on-axis coma, astigmatism, de-centering aberrations and provides a full spherical corrected flat-field. An internal etalon with tune adjustment allows for a <0.75 Angstrom bandpass. The LS60THa/B1200C comes with the B1200 blocking filter. The star diagonal in which the blocking filter is installed, is equipped as standard for 1.25" eyepieces and with a T2 camera connection. With 500mm focal length it provides a ~4.5 mm image through a 12mm blocking filter. Fine adjustment is achieved with a Crayford style with 10:1 reduction. Supplied with an aluminium finished hard case with fitted foam. Asking £1600 ono P&P included
  3. I was going to make the same suggestion as runoffshed. It looks to me as if it is the support arm that is turning. Is there anyway of securing the support arm where it attaches to the Tube, or is it welded?

    The South Wales Lounge

    Hi Morddraig, Welcome to SGL and SW Group. If your looking for informal you have come to the right place. The group don't as a rule have formal meetings sitting in a pub etc etc, but do weather and Moon permitting have meeting during the dark season at Blaenavon.The next meet should be in a about 2 weeks. Keep an eye out for Mikes postings for Observing meets. These are usual arranged around the New moon period. There is also the annual Star Party week which I belive is being arranged at this moment. See here The 150 and EQ5Pro is a good set that you have there. If you are just doing observing and not Astrophotography, then just pointing the mount North should be good enough for GOTO. Pat
