Special Offer: A Lunt H-alpha solar telescope at a special price!

November 30 2018, Stefan Taube

 The LS50THa / B400PT solar telescope from Lunt Solar Systems allows safe solar observation in H-alpha-light. This wavelength allows you to observe prominences, filaments and other exciting phenomena in the sun’s atmosphere. We are currently offering the LS50THa / B400PT for only 999 Euros! Saving you 326 Euros when compared to the previous price!

Lunt Solar Systems Sonnenteleskop 50/350 LS50THa/B400PT

The somewhat cryptic designation LS50THa / B400PT describes the characteristic features of this solar telescope:

  • Its 50mm aperture and 350mm focal length make it particularly compact and allow it to be used on a camera tripod.
  • The H-alpha filter only passes light at a focal length of 656 nanometres, with a peak width at half-height of less than 0.75 angstroms.
  • B400 stands for the value of the cutting filter, which is located behind the H-alpha filter and reduces the intensity of sunlight. B400 means that it has a band pass of 4 millimeters.
  • PT stands for Pressure Tuning: The Fine-Tuning of the H-Alpha Etalon Filter is achieved via variation in air pressure. This ensures a particularly homogeneous image field.

The telescope is equipped with a helical focuser. But you can also purchase a matching and very high-quality Feather Touch focuser at a special price!

Another possible improvement is a reduction in the peak width at half height of the telescope. You can add a second H-alpha filter to the telescope. The matching LS50C module is also greatly reduced in price! This process, called ‘double stacking’ increases the contrast of the structures seen in H-alpha light.

But it is not only the LS50ThA / B400PT which is available at a reduced price, but also the special eyepieces for it, which are optimized for H-alpha light.

These eyepieces are available as a complete set or individually  – with a saving of 47 Euros per eyepiece! And of course you can also use these eyepieces on any other telescope with H-alpha filters.

The offer is valid until 31.12.2018 and only while stocks last. Grab yours now!

TeleVue Mars Madness: Eyepieces at a Special Price!

June 27 2018, Stefan Taube

The planet Mars rises just before midnight and becomes the brightest object in the night sky.  Looking through a telescope, Mars will reveal itself as it nears Earth with increasingly more detail.

The series of photos below were captured between January and the end of April 2018.  They show the impressive growing diameter of Mars’ planetary disk.

Mars-Annäherung

The planet’s closest distance to Earth will take place at the end of July, during which time the disk will appear twice as large, as in the previous series of photos!  A glance at our outer neighbor in the solar system, however, will be well worth it throughout all of the Summer months!  A requirement in a successful Mars observation is a good eyepiece with a short focal length, which allows for a high magnification.

With the theme, Mars Madness, the American eyepiece specialist TeleVue is dropping its prices on its short focal length eyepieces by over 10% during the Mars Summer Event!  – an ideal time to expand your own eyepiece collection!  The price-drop applies to the following models:
