Quote:Haven't tried the Lunt. I find the PST to be a remarkable instrument for the price and I think the build quality is good, tho' not in the same class as my SM 90 (which is what one would expect).

I find the PST to be a remarkable instrument for the price and I think the build quality is good, tho' not in the same class as my SM 90 (which is what one would expect).To be more specific, I think the PST focuser is worse than bad .. and imaging with a PST takes more trouble than it should. The 5 mm Blocking Filter is also limiting. Sure it's usable, and when first released it was a fantastic way to get into H-a. But the Lunt 35 is a better choice today.
Quote:The PST focuser is simple and very precise. The BF is not at all limiting for visual.

Quote:Just to add to this discussion : The wait time for an Lunt 35mm is currently 8 months according to Lunt.
Quote:no one at Lunt is profiteering. That is simply a ridiculous accusation.
