I have loved, Used, and enjoyed this hydrogen alpha telescope hundreds of times. I have been repeatedly wowed by this and have made dozens of solar time-lapse animations. I am the original owner, it was purchased directly from lunt and the registration papers are included. (still blank)

This ota Works amazing and provides fantastic image's. One of the best hydrogen alpha telescopes I have owned! I believe the etalon is .75 angstroms.

Has the usual dust, nicks, markings and dings of a used item. It is about 3.5 years old (see photos) (there are a couple dust/pollen spots but I never once cleaned or touched the optics)

it has a minor dent but nothing is broken (it was never dropped, i recieved it like this directly from lunt).

It is about 3.5 years old (see photos) (there are a couple dust/pollen spots but I never once cleaned or touched the optics)

The opticals work perfect, and the focuser is smooth. I put a couple ink marks on the focuser to calibrate my eyepiece and barlow locations. These can be removed with rubbing alcohol if they bother you.

The pressure tuner functions perfect both blue wing and red wing. i have never replaced the grease, seals or gasket rings. Everything retains pressure as intended and does not need maintenance.

No blocking filter included!
includes lunt metal case, lunt clamshell and televue sol search sun finder.

Selling this to fund a prototype project I designed!

Great opportunity to get a lower cost pressure tuner for your own project if you are into science projects and building things.

The first four pictures are of the ls60tha you will be getting. The solar pictures displayed after this were imaged by me using a basler 1300-30gm monochrome ccd camera.

This telescope is an amazing performer on clear days, the first two high magnification images are stacked results from 9/16/2017 using a b3400 blocking filter with an additional telecentric.

The third picture is a stack and was taken on 9/29/2017
The magnetic loops picture is a stack and was taken on 9/10/2017
The two near full disc images are unstacked single frame captures and were imaged on 10/18/2017.

If you are an experienced imager you will be very happy with your results!
I have been a solar imager for 10 years, and product developer for 20 years.



Includes lunt metal case, lunt clamshell and televue sol search sun finder.

The last four pictures are of the prototype project you will be funding.
(a future telecentric imaging product I intend for sale online in 2018)


Asking $1000.00 + half of the shipping cost. (additional $30.00)

I prefer USA only please.
