Product information "LUNT Ca-K filter-module for LS130MT"
This Ca-K module can be used at the LS130MT/B1200 and LS130MT/B1800 telescopes to observe the Sun also in the Calcium-K line. At the LS130MT/B3400 additionally the conversion kit for the LS130MT is required (item number 0551696).

You can use this Ca-K module with your LS130MT telescope to observe and photograph the Sun not only in H-alpha, but also in the blue calcium-K wavelength. Here again completely different phenomena become visible on the Sun than in H-alpha.

This Ca-K module was specially designed for the LS130MT H-Alpha telescope. If the H-alpha Etalon unit is removed from the LS130MT, the Ca-K module is simply inserted into the focuser instead of the blocking-filter.
The additional conversion kit 0551696 is necessary at the LS130MT/B3400, because at this telescope the blocking filter is fix installed inside the focuser.

For human eyes, the calcium-K light is just at the limit of the visible range. Many people have problems with visual observation. However, this does not apply to photography, where the Ca-K module shows everything the Sun has to offer in this wavelength.

LUNT LS130MT/B1200 Multipurpose APO Telescope for Sun + Night-Sky
Complete H-alpha Solar Telescope with 130mm aperture and <0.7 Angstrom bandwidth. With Feather-Touch focuser, advanced air-pressure tuning system, and B1200 Blocking Filter.The LS130MT is a triplet ED apochromatic refractor with modular design! The telescope can also be used for night sky observations, and with the optional available accessories also for observing the sun in the Ca-K wavelength and in White-Light!The LS130MT/B1200 is a complete telescope for observing the sun in H-alpha light, with 130mm free aperture (no central obstruction) and 910mm focal length. The higher resolution compared to telescopes with smaller aperture allows the observer to dive into the fine details and surface phenomena of our ever-changing Sun. The higher resolution allows higher magnifications, bringing the fine details of the Sun to life in the eyepiece or on the screen.An internal Etalon filter with the innovative air pressure tuning System Pressure Tuner achieves a bandwidth of <0.7 Angstroms. The tuning is done by slightly changing the air pressure in a pressure chamber inside the telescope. This changes the refractive index of the air, making it easy to adjust to the H-alpha line. The pressure tuner guarantees an homogeneous image without central obstruction and a permanently protected etalon without wear. A set of collimating lenses installed in the telescope ensures best performance.Fine adjustment is achieved by a 2" Starlight-Instruments Feather-Touch focuser with 1.5" travel and 10:1 reduction.Blocking-filter is the B1200. The B1200 is good for visual solar observing. Also solar imaging is possible by cameras with small CCD chip. We recommend a LS130MT with B1800 blocking-filter by using cameras with middle or large sized CCD chips, at very large CCD chips the B3400 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.Also the LS130MT telescope is upgradeable with the additional available DSII double-stack system (item no. 0551690). The optional DSII system is a internal double stack module with Pressure Tuner, that provides a bandwidth <0.5 Angstrom. More details on the solar surface will become visible by reducing the bandwidth.Modular design:The H-Alpha Etalon system can be easily removed from the telescope. The 3-lens ED Apochromat can be used as a normal telescope for observation and imaging of the night sky.Also available is a Ca-K module (item number 0551697) specially developed for the LS130MT. This also allows to observe the sun in the blue calcium wavelength.A Herschel-wedge (item number 0558201) can also be used for observing the sun in white light.This makes the LS130MT a completely universal usable telescope!FEATURESTriplet ED apochromatic refractor, FPL-51Aperture: 130mm (no central obstruction)Focal length: 910mmBandwidth: internal Etalon with <0.7 AngstromTuning: air-pressure tuning systemBlocking-filter: B1200 with 1.25" and T2 connectionFocuser: Starlight-Instruments Feather-Touch focuser with 10:1 reductionTwo tube rings with carrying handleDove tail bar with GP level for astronomical MountsWeight: 12.1kgLength with blocking-filter and dew-shield: 100cmLength without blocking-filter and removed dew-shield: 80cmSCOPE OF DELIVERYLS130MT multipurpose telescopePressure-Tuner systemB1200 blocking-filter in star-diagonal2" Feather-Touch focuserTube-extension for using without H-alpha EtalonTube rings with dove tail barTransport case (92x42x35cm)Instruction manual

LUNT HRG/SFPT anti-reflection filter for DSII/SFPT double-stack at LS80MT & LS100MT telescopes
The anti-reflection filter is an accessory for the DSII/SFPT double-stack module for the Lunt Solar Systems LS80MT and LS100MT telescopes. Reflections that may occur there can be effectively reduced with this anti-reflection filter if necessary.At the LS80MT and LS100MT multipurpose telescopes from Lunt Solar Systems, double-stacking is possible in H-alpha mode for solar observation with the internal DSII/SFPT double-stack modules (item number 0551395). The DSII modules reduce the bandwidth to <0.5 Angstroms. The DSII modules are designed to show better the surface details of the Sun, the contrast is significantly increased, and therefore filaments and active areas are better visible.But the DSII modules can also induce reflections, which can show up as a strong brightening around the sun. This so-called ''glow'' is not a problem when observing the solar surface. But it can complicate the observation of prominences, and many observers find it disturbing. The HRG/SFPT anti-reflection filter is designed to solve this problem. The filter effectively reduces the reflections. But please also note that the image will become darker by using this anti-reflective filter.The HRG/SFPT anti-reflection filter is easy to install. It is not necessary to return the telescope to the manufacturer, the filter can be easily installed by the user.This filter cannot be used separately! It can only be used on a Lunt Solar Systems LS80MT or LS100MT telescope together with a DSII/SFPT Double-Stack module.SCOPE OF DELIVERYHRG/SFPT anti-reflection filterInstruction manual

LUNT LS40THa/B500 H-alpha solar telescope
Solar observation in H-Alpha: prominences, filaments, flares ... the most spectacular way to see the Sun - easy and affordable with the LS40THa.Complete H-alpha solar telescope with 40mm aperture, <0.7 Angstrom bandwidth, B500 blocking-filter, and Helical focuser.The LS40THa/B500 is a complete telescope for observing the sun in H-alpha, with 40mm aperture (no central obstruction) and 400mm focal length. The H-alpha wavelength is the most impressive way to observe the sun, showing protuberances at the sun's edge, filaments and flares on the surface, and much more. An Etalon with mechanical tilt-tuning provides <0.7 Angstrom bandwidth.Fine adjustment is achieved with a 1.25 inch Helical focuser. Blocking-filter is the B500, this is good for visual observation of the sun. The star diagonal in which the blocking filter is installed, is equipped as standard for 1.25 inch eyepiece connection.The easy handling makes this telescope ideal for starting H-Alpha solar observation. Due to its compact dimensions it is also a good travel telescope for the experienced solar observers.The LS40THa telescopes are available with choice of B500, B600 or B1200 blocking filters. The larger blocking filters provide less edge obstruction and a larger field of view for visual observation and photography. Please note that these telescopes have only a very small back focus and therefore photography is difficult. We recommend special astro cameras for photography, which have a very short distance to the sensor, such as the BRESSER Full HD camera item number 4959050.FEATURESAperture: 40mm (no central obstruction, 2-lens refractor)Focal length: 400mmBandwidth: <0.7 AngstromTuning: mechanical tilt-tuningBlocking filter: B500 with 1.25 inch connectionFocuser: Helical focuserDovetail bar at standard GP-level1/4-20 tapped base (standard thread for photo-tripods)Sol-Searcher includedWeight: 1.2kgLength: 41cmSCOPE OF DELIVERYLS40THa Solar TelescopeB500 blocking filter in star-diagonal housing1.25 inch Helical focuserDovetail bar (GP level)Sol-SearcherInstruction manual
