Thanks Joel.

I've owned the little LS35THa for almost three years now and haven't regretted it once.




Stephen, is it the B 400 or the B 600 blocking filter on the LS35THa?
Is there a difference for visual use between them?

Just a fun shot. Big & Little.

In this case, an A-P 155EDF and an A-P Traveler.

Hi Maurits,

Mine came with the B400. I have not had an opportunity to use the B600, but from my understanding the B600 and it's larger open aperture are only advantageous when using the scope for photography. You might contact Lunt directly to verify this.

I would love to own a little Pentax, if only for the sorrow at the passing of that line of scopes. I'm just thrilled to have stumbled upon their fine eyepieces before they too are lost.

Thanks Nickk,

I have waited about four years to find this 125SDP.

She's really fantastic in optic, and also really big... I think the the 105SDP should be a better choice for general use. With the same f ratio and same glass combination, 105 should have even better correction.

Beautiful scopes Edd! Is that a P-51 in the backround?

Wish it was a P-51 or Spitfire. It's a 1954 Beech T-34B Mentor used for Navy primary flight training.

Project finished about a year ago after 3 years work.
