Quote:Something like that happened to me when I received a new LS100. Right out of the box it appeared as if I was looking through floral patterned silk curtains. The field of view looked like a jigsaw puzzle of clear and blurry areas and the sweet spot was tiny and way off to one side rather than centered. The view as wonderfully fantastic through the good parts as it was horrible through the bad parts. Switching blocking filters from another scope didn't help, so it wasn't the blocking filter. I couldn't see anything on any of the internal optical surfaces. They appeared to be pristine. I returned the scope to Lunt for warranty repair. I had it back in my hands the very next week. They said they cleaned it.
Quote:But did it work right afterwards?
Quote:Call Lunt--my guess is you may have a leak in the pressure tuner.Jim
Quote:I just got a DSII unit yesterday. Is it interchangeable with the pressure tuner that came with the scope? That is, can I replace the stock pressure tuner with the DSII unit to see if it exhibits the same behavior? Or can the DSII only be used in concert with another etalon?
