LUNT SOLAR SYSTEMS - LS230THa - Pressure Tuned w/ B3400 Blocking Filter SOLAR TELESCOPE
At 230mm F/7 the Lunt Solar LS230T/PT is by far the world’s largest production Solar telescope beating out the previous record holder and now slightly smaller brother (LS152) by 80mm. The LS230THa/PT (pressure tuned) is a complete and dedicated Hydrogen-alpha Solar Telescope. A precision aligned refractor with a fully un-obstructed 230mm aperture. The 100% unobstructed system will perform to the highest level at both low and high magnifications. Utilizing advanced hi-contrast coatings and the new Doppler True Pressure Tuning system the user will be able to experience an un-paralleled level of visual and imaging performance.
With an image size of almost 16mm at the eyepiece, the views thru this instrument are truly breathtaking. Clear skies provide the feeling of seeing into every detail of our nearest Star. The LS230T is a limited production dedicated Hydrogen-alpha telescope with a bandpass of less than 0.65 Angstroms. Optical design by the well known Massimo Riccardi provides crisp, sharp features, while an unobstructed aperture allows for the highest level of contrast and resolution available in any Solar Telescope.
The LS230T is a dedicated Hydrogen-alpha Solar telescope. The optics were specifically designed to be optimized at the 656nm wavelength. This includes a highly specified IR reflective coating that is applied to the surface of the front objective element to remove most of the heat from the system. However a large format CaK system can be produced by utilizing the Lunt CaK Solar wedge.
The view thru this instrument is truly breathtaking. Utilizing advanced hi-contrast coatings and the new Doppler True Pressure Tuning system the user will be able to experience an un-paralleled level of visual and imaging performance. We are now including the Pressure Tuner Controller (PC1) with each LS230THa. This will allow users set and stay at a center wavelength point.
