I own a PST with which I'm very happy. I've enjoyed it so much, I'd like to improve my H-Alpha setup. Given the finances, I have two options:
1) sell PST, buy Lunt 60 SS.
2) buy SM40 unit to double stack my PST.
Which do you think would be the better value? Is 60mm single stacked better, worse, about the same as 40mm double stacked?

I have only compared directly a PST DS to a SM60 SS back when Coronado was in Tucson, but from what I saw I'd get the Lunt LS60T/PT. The increased aperture is significant in this range, and along with the pressure tuning and overall improvement in quality, will make it the much better scope for observing detail...
Then save up to double stack with the LS60F in the future.

I'll take all the info under consideration and keep on reading for a bit. Cheers.

It seems silly enough that I'm pretty sure I'm reading the information I've found incorrectly. Sorry if this is a dumb question.

You can buy a Lunt 60mm external etalon to double stack with.

All I could find initially were the 50s and that just made no sense. Cheers.
