I was able to buy a “gently used” LS100THA from Lunt, case, rings, finder, B1800 blocking filter, and free shipping.
Seems like a good way to buy and save some money for other toys when available.
Its completely cleaned and gone through and tested, same 5 yr Warrantee, kind of a no brainer.
Have a losmandy style universal plate on order , so I’m guessing next week I should have everything to try.
Im excited to see how it compares to the Quark in my WO 132mm Scope.
I’m thinking brighter, full disk with more surface detail and fantastic proms.
Sounds like I’ll need to make an aperture mask for less than good seeing days and I’ll be ready.
Somewhere down the road a DS to drop in when needed.
Solar Minimum needs to go.
Thanks to everyone’s advise and thoughts , it helped make the decision and Lunt just happened to have the scope I wanted on there gently used shelf.
More to come
