So I am getting REALLY close to pulling the trigger after a lot of waffling
Coronado Solarmax 70 III (~3200) or Lunt LS60THa (~3600)
Both would be double stack (tie)
Lunt is a little more $$ by the time I add a eyepiece (like the zoom), Dovetail and Sol Searcher but comes with a case (tie)
Solarmax has a Barlow available in the series but not a zoom eyepiece (tie maybe win for Lunt)
Generally in reading it sounds like the Lunt is a bit higher quality and easier to tune (Lunt?)
15mm vs 12mm on BF (Coronado)
External Ethalons on the Coronado (no benefit as I have a WO 102 refractor and various white Canon lenses now so another refractor is meh for now)
I was all set on the Coronado III when I saw the updates but am leaning Lunt now. Certainly I would do some visual but like my night equipment it would lean toward photo. The system would be mounted on my AVX mount for now which I tend to upgrade within a year or less.
Any input from the more experienced solar folks?
