FOR SALE: Lunt, H-Alpha 60mm Solar Scope, With 6mm Blocking Filter. Purchased new from Agena Astro during Lunt's recent big sale.
(Lunt LS60THa Solar Telescope - Pressure-Tuned - B600CPT – 6mm Blocking Filter with 2" Crayford Focuser)

The Story:
I was always interested in Solar Observing: love the white light wedge. Fascinated by the possibility of H-Alpha. Lunt's crazy sale--a 60mm single stacked scope for $800 or so, too good to pass up! Bought from Agena Astro. Instead of sending me the Tilt Tuned, they accidentally sent the Pressure Tuned -- a $1450 scope. I told them. The good folks there gave me a price to keep the better scope, and I paid the difference.

Here's why I'm selling: I'm a guy who observes the moon. I'm not enjoying H-Alpha observing. At all. Not my cup of tea. Used it four times, and I've had enough. Time for someone who observes the sun to enjoy this scope.

I'm going to start with local pick-up ONLY in Portland, OR. If I have to ship this down the road, the price is going to go up.

Maybe this scope is your cup of tea. I'm going to price this at the pay-it-forward price point: I've had a lot of great deals lately by fine people, and I'd like to continue that good vibe.

The Good:
So-- 60 mm H Alpha PRESSURE TUNED solar scope, with a small scratch in the paint, used exactly four times , purchased not more than 6 weeks ago, and if purchased new from Lunt today would be $1450, is yours locally in Portland, OR--for $985. It also includes the Tele Vue Sun finder, which I have not mounted.

The Bad:
I also put a dove bar on it and put a small scratch in the paint. (I'm an idiot, but I have other, better qualities.) I put some white out on it. Obviously zero impact on optics. See picture.

Terms are cash. All Sales Final. PM me and we'll talk about how you can come buy it. I am no expert in solar viewing, so there's not much I can teach you. But I know this scope is right for somebody out there. Maybe you?
