This is the Lunt 152 Ha Solar Telescope, the largest solar scope currently available.

Scope and Mount package details are listed at end of this post.
Scope package is $ 6800 / Mount package is $ 1800 / Total turnkey package is $8600

Large aperture is necessary with the NARROW band used for the Ha frequencies when using higher power.
With higher power the image becomes VERY dim unless you have aperture !
You can adjust the pressure tuned Etalon slightly differently for max detail on the prominences or for surface turbulence and detail.
You can zoom in on a prominence and fill the whole field of view with it !!
** You need the Nagler Sol-finder ! The Sol-finder allows you to center the image without looking at the sun. There is a projected image on the sol-finder and you simply center it !
** You need the Telegismos Solar Observing hood – The hood is totally opaque, cuts heat and can be gathered together to completely eliminate all ambient light – NECESSARY.
** You need the JMI Motofocus. With higher power, focusing is critical. The Motofocus is perfect – you never need to touch the scope to focus and you can update continuously.

With the turnkey system I have assembled I can include the mount, tripod and wheely system as well.
Mount package includes:
Celestron CGE mount and heavy duty Tripod / Hard shell travel case for the CGE / Wheely Mount for easy movement. Wheel it to where you will observe and you are ready to go.

Heres what I have:

** Lunt 152 Ha Solar scope with Original Lunt Zoom eyepiece, original case, B1800 2” Blocking Filter, Nagler Sol-Finder, Telegismos Solar Observing hood, Losmandy plate, JMI Motofocuser with 2 speed controller – original cost was $ 8782 – I will sell all for $ 6800 plus shipping.
