Nice images! Congratulations on your new solar scope.
Today I received my Lunt 60mm Ha PT B1200 SS by UPS. I sold my PST and shipped it this morning but before I packed it up, I took one more view and the PST didn’t disappoint. Saw a couple of poms.
I mounted the 60mm on my VX mount and was able to see several small poms. I looked through it again about an hour ago and after a few minutes I saw several poms again. I think the scope had to warm up because the poms weren’t visible right away. I can see that this is a keeper scope.
I bought this scope on CL used and it didn’t disappoint. I didn’t stop there. There was a double stack filter for the 60mm on CL so I bought that too. It will be delivered next Tuesday. I feel like I’m in the big league now!!!
Hopefully I’ll be able to take photos like yours.
Thanks for sharing…..Hank

Thanks for the feedback everyone! I've only gotten one more day under the Sun since this image thanks to poor weather. Currently looking into piggybacking the scope to my C8 and using the white light filter I have for it.
