Hi,

is the Lunt LS60F filter that you attach to a night time scope in combination with a blocking filter different from a LS60F double stack filter that you add to a dedicated Ha scope?

Thanks.

Don't believe so.  Read down the page...

I think you should call faye at lunt's.
I doubt that many of these telescopes are already sold and that anyone can summarize.

LS60FHA, when used with a Lunt blocking filter and appropriate adapter can be used to mount on the front objective of any telescope for h-alpha viewing.   The same part is also used as a front double stack on Lunt 60mm tilt tune and pressure tune scopes.  

 

It's the same part.  

 

The LS60FHA is very pricy because it's a huge 60mm front placed etalon.  The prebuilt 60mm h-alpha scopes from Lunt use a smaller 35mm internal etalon that cost less than piecing together an h-alpha scope out of a ls60fha, while having relatively similar performance.
