Product information "LUNT LS18CaKMDd2 Ca-K filter in 90° star diagonal"
Calcium-K module in star diagonal, for using normal astronomical telescopes up to 100mm aperture and up to 1620mm focal length as Ca-K solar telescopes.

This Calcium-K module transforms your normal astronomical refractor telescope into a Ca-K solar telescope. It will be very easy: Put the Ca-K module into the 2" focuser of your telescope, and you are ready for solar observing in the light of the Calcium-K wavelength.

Internal narrowband filters allow for a <2.4 Angstrom bandwidth. For refractor telescopes up to 100mm aperture and up to 1620mm focal length. For imaging it will be better to use a bigger Ca-K module.
The Ca-K module is in a 90° star diagonal, for 2" focuser on the telescope side, and with T2 thread and 1.25" eyepiece connection on the eyepiece side.

All needed filter parts are integrated inside the compact module. There are no additional filters needed.

The Ca-K wavelength is at the edge of the visible light spectrum for human eyes, so for many people visual observing is difficult. However, all details could be captured photographically. Therefore the Ca-K Module is optimized primarily for imaging.

FEATURES
  • Bandwidth <2.4 Angstrom
  • Usable at telescopes up to 100mm aperture and 1620mm focal
  • 90° star-diagonal housing
  • 2" slide tube for 2" focuser
  • Connection for 1.25" eyepieces
  • T2 thread for camera connection

LUNT O-ring for Pressure-Tuner at LS50THa solar telescopes
​Spare part for Pressure-Tuner of LS50THa H-alpha solar telescopes from LUNT SOLAR SYSTEMSA rubber O-ring is installed into the Pressure-Tuner of Lunt Solar Systems LS50THa solar telescopes to seal the air-pressure tuning system. Over time, the rubber of this O-ring can age and become porous, whereby the air-pressure can then no longer be maintained. When this happens, the old O-ring can be replaced by this spare part. The replacement is simple and can be done by the user. Installation instructions can be found here under the tab "Manuals" as a PDF for download.After replacing the O-ring, the piston and cylinder of the Pressure-Tuner can be re-greased with grease available under part number 0558350.Please note that this spare part can only be used on the Lunt Solar Systems LS50THa H-alpha solar telescopes. If the problem occurs on the larger THa or MT series telescopes, the larger O-rings with part numbers 0558330 or 0558340 must be used there.FEATURESInner-diameter: 31mmOuter-diameter: 39mmCannot be used separately, only as a replacement part on the Pressure-Tuner of the LS50THa telescopes from Lunt Solar Systems.It does not matter what blocking filter is at the LS50THaSCOPE OF DELIVERYSpare part one O-ring for pressure tuner of LS50THa

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.SCOPE OF DELIVERY2'' Ca-K Module for LS130MT telescopeInstruction manualLS130MT telescope and conversion kit not included!

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

The DSII modules reduce the bandwidth to <0.5 Angstrom. They are designed to show the surface details of the sun better, the contrast is significantly increased and therefore filaments and active regions are better visible.The DSII/SFPT module is designed exclusively for use in LS80MT and LS100MT telescopes, it cannot be used at other telescopes. It is used between the existing H-Alpha unit and the focuser on the telescope. Installation is simple, no additional adapters or tools are required.FEATURESBandwidth: <0.5 AngstromTuning: Air Pressure Tuning System SCOPE OF DELIVERYDSII module with internal Etalon for LS80MT and LS100MT telescopesPressure Tuner System(LS80MT or LS100MT telescope not included!)
