Product Description

The perfect beginner thru intermediate level Solar Visual Package, the LS60T/PT Visual Package is a fully integrated, 100% safe, dedicated Solar Telescope.

Lunt Solars'  LS60/Ha (Hydrogen-alpha) series are complete Solar Telescopes. The refractor based systems have a precision aligned singlet chromatical lens with a 60mm aperture. The front singlet lens reduces by half  the stray light of an achromat , fully eliminating the possibility for on-axis coma, astigmatism, or de-centering aberrations and provides, with the matched collimation lens set, a full spherically corrected flat-field Solar Telescope. The focal length of 500mm provides a ~4.5 mm image thru a required blocking filter. Fine adjustment is achieved with either a Crayford style focuser or optional Starlight Feathertouch focuser with 10:1 reduction. An internal etalon with Doppler pressure tuning adjustment allows for a <0.75 Angstrom bandpass.

As the Sun enters Solar Maximum over the next few years, the excitement of viewing our Star thru a dedicated Solar telescope is sure to provide many many hours of visual enjoyment and educational insights.
This visual package is fully upgradeable at anytime without ever needing to go back to the factory. As the Sun becomes  increasingly more active, you will appreciate that the instrument can grow right along with it.
This package provides the basic essentials perfect for a first time introduction to Daytime Solar Observing, while also including the newest technology for fine tuning, a True Doppler Pressure Tuner, allowing basic research of the Sun’s disk and surface details.

Note: Included in this package is a B600 (6mm) Blocking Filter for standard visual use.

    Required Blocking Filter:

  • B600 for safe visual observing (included)
  • B1200 for larger field of view and imaging applications (optional upgrade)


Lunt Solar Systems currently offers 4 blocking filter apertures for use with their Etalon systems. The Blocking Filter houses additional filters which are required for the safety and performance of the solar package.  Lunt Solar blocking filters contain a unique filter system. Lunt will only warranty safety or performance when a Lunt blocking filter is paired with a Lunt H-alpha filter or telescope.


  • Narrow Band Hydrogen-alpha (656.28nm) Dedicated System.
  • A refractor based system with a 60mm front objective.
  • An internal Etalon with a NEW Pressure Tuner allows for <0.7 Angstrom bandpass, providing a perfect blend of edge and surface detail.
  • Focusing is accomplished via a precise Crayford 2 speed 10:1 focuser.
  • The system also includes a "clamshell" with threaded holes for mounting, dust caps, and is delivered in an aluminum reinforced case. 
  • An eyepiece is not included, and although any eyepiece will work, we recommend the Lunt Zoom.
